Universal College believes in development of talent, ambitions and knowledge of students so they can stand with fully dignity in any corner of the world on the basics of their technical and ethnical skills. Department Provides practical exposure to the students through modern laboratories with continuous up gradation and opportunities to students to help upgrade their conceptual knowledge by enhancing the information sources like Library, internet access facilities etc., We Create technical awareness among the students through special lectures from eminent resource persons, through industrial visits. We provide knowledge with specialization in DSP, VLSI, Embedded Systems and Communication Systems to make this institution a Center of Excellence in Electronics and Communication Engineering. The branch of Electronics and Communication will be proved as one of the major bases in the development of “Digital India”. In this highly developing world of Automation and Mobile Communication, the department of Electronics and Communication would be proved as a boon for everyone. For this our department has laboratories for more than 30 various subjects. Few of them are mentioned below.
ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATION
|BE||Electronics & Communication||90|
VLSI DESIGN,SIMULATION LAB
FPGA design software and hardware kits are being used. The VLSI lab has condensed synopsis tools, Modelsim, VHDL compiler, trainer tools for simulation, schematic and layout design, Xilinx synthesis software.
This is well furnished and equipped to develop the skill for analysis and design of various circuits using electronic Devices like Semiconductors, transistors, OP-Amp741 & 555 timer, rectifier, SCR, TRIAC, DIAC etc.
This includes analog as well as digital communication practical knowledge. The GSM technology and other wireless communication like satellite communication is today’s latest trend and research field which can be learned by the students through trainer kits.
DIGITAL ELECTRONICS,DSP LAB
The student will be able to Design, analyze and interpret combinational and sequential Digital circuits. This is to impart basic knowledge about the different signals, systems and transforms of the signals by using hardware trainer kits and MULTISIM, MATLAB Software.
The laboratory has digital trainer kits, 8/16 bit microcontroller Universal programmer for EPROM/EEPROM. The purpose to impart the basic idea of memory & system organization programming concepts of 8085, 8051, ARM7, ARM9 using hardware kits and Keil software can be implemented.
ANTENNA AND WAVE PROPOGATION,MICROWAVE LAB
Facilities exist to impart knowledge in the area of antenna measurement, high frequency test bench, Sweep Oscillators, spectrum analyzers. The lab supports microwave antenna trainer system, VHF and UHF antenna, microwave test bench, Power meter/sources, Communication trainer kit.
- Department arrange various industrial visits for students in well reputed companies to keep them aware with current trends so they can make contacts with industries and physically see the working environment in the companies.
- Institute always try to enhance knowledge of students by arranging expert lectures and seminars. Institute arranges carrier oriented workshop which leads towards the institute placement.
Our department encourages students to participate in national and international robotics competition, paper presentation and various culture events.
- We arrange various technical events and activities in the college to encourage students.
Historical moments and Achievements
The faculty members from the EC Department were very supportive for the students. UCET has always provided moral and financial support to the students wherever necessary.
Our students of 8th semester 2014 [EC], named SnehKaji, VivekRaval&Tarshul Mehta, have made an innovative project, named “High Altitude Sky Probe Data Logger”, which has achieved a hike in the newspaper also. The purpose of the project was to design a payload system which should be capable of operating in the extreme environmental conditions near space. The payload would consider the calculations of various weather elements. It would take a flight of approximately 30 kilometers and during that ascent the camera in the payload will be taking pictures of the curvature of the earth.
Ms.TruptiGoswami (5th Semester EC Student-2014) has achieved 3rd rank in Project “ABHYAS”,organized by IIMT International Institute of Management and Technical Studies, among 180 students from various 18 colleges of GTU. She has got an award by Chief Guest Mr. Bharatbhai Patel (Chairman of Yudiz Solutions Pvt. Ltd).
In support of this program, faculty members of EC Dept. were always ready to assist and due to all support and hard-work, Ms.Trupti has attained this achievement.
UCET has a Tie-up with “HERE MAPS” powered by Nokia, one of the leading companies in the field of Mobile Communication, for the betterment of students field work. The selected students have been working for this brand name which would further help the students to achieve training sessions in Nokia as well as other better prospective. Also the eligible students have been already recruited in the company.
The students are also encouraged for BSNL EETP Training Program which is a Central Government Organized Training Program. The EC Department has already arranged few students for this Training Program from 5th semester and 7th semester as well. This activity has been involved since last two years and has been very helpful to the students to deal with realistic world and up-build their career.
