ADMISSIONS 2019

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

M. Tech. Communication Engineering and Signal Processing Program is designed to meet the core computational requirements with relevance to analysis and design of Communication Systems. Core courses ensure the understanding of the fundamental concepts and apply them to the problem under consideration. A selected list of core courses are Mathematical Methods for Communication Systems, RF Circuits and Systems, Digital Communication, Wireless Communication Theory, Stochastic Signal Processing etc. This list is supplemented with a good choice of elective courses like Radar Systems, Software defined Radio, Stochastic modelling and queuing theory, Machine learning, Convex optimization etc. The courses are unique and fall in-line with the requirements from the industries. Provides opportunity in pursuing design and development work in National Aerospace Lab (NAL- CSIR), Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR - DRDO), ISRO and Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS, Kochi) and industry specific R&D labs.

PLACEMENTS

The Corporate & Industry Relations supports the placement process by identifying relevant career opportunities for those who are seeking placement assistance. It provides timely update to the students about available opportunities in other organizations of relevance. An array of companies visit Amrita for placement of M.Tech Students.
Corporate & Industry Relations, has developed industry-academia association through frequent visits, interactions with the top management and facilitation of Faculty Development Programs, Student Visits, Industrial Training, and Project Guidance under Corporate Action Plan.

Communication Engineering and Signal Processing applications have beenrapidly growing and evolving over the past few years. Ubiquitouscommunication is becoming a necessity for the society. The proposed M.Tech.Program is designed to offer not only in-depth theoretical knowledge in the areas of Communication Engineering, Signal Processing, and Wireless Networks, butalso system modeling and integration aspects emphasizing overall systembehavioural studies in a laboratory. Such courses are unique and fall in-line withthe requirements from the industries. At the end of the programme the studentwould acquire the ability to identify pressing research issues and researchdirections in Communications, Signal Processing, and Wireless Networks.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • PEO1  :  Ability to apply Communication engineering and Signal Processing concepts to Engineering problems so as to meet the need of the industry, teaching, higher education or research.
  • PEO2  :  Ability to innovate and contribute in diverse areas including RF, Digital communication, Wireless networks and Computational engineering.
  • PEO3  :  Exhibit professional competence and leadership qualities with a harmonious blend of ethics leading to an integrated personality development.

The Programme Outcomes (POs)

  • PO1     :  An ability to independently carry out research/investigation and development work to solve practical problems.
  • PO2     :  An ability to write and present a substantial technical report/document.
  • PO3     :  Students should be able to demonstrate a degree of mastery over the area as per the specialization of the program. The mastery should be at a level higher than the requirements in the appropriate bachelor program.
  • PO4     :  An ability to work in a team to take up the challenges in the field of RF, Digital Communication, Wireless Networks and Computational Engineering giving due consideration to societal, environmental, economical and financial factors.
  • PO5     :  An ability to maintain lifelong learning and research by way of participating in various professional activities with a higher level of commitment.
