Information and communication technology (ICT) has become one of the essential infrastructures for modern society and transforming the lifestyle integrated with digital devices. ICT will facilitate integrated decision making in power, transportation, sensor, healthcare, industrial automation and others. M.Tech in Communication Systems forms the fundamental premise for potpourri of computational paradigms for communication networks, energy efficient architecture and protocols aiming to deliver ubiquitous, secure and resilient next generation networks.This program also provides insights into the design aspects of wireless communication systems using computational optimization. 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.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • To apply mathematical foundations and advanced communication technology concepts enabling the design and analysis to meet the demands of industry, teaching and research.
  • To innovate and contribute in diverse areas including Radio Frequency systems, Digital communication, Wireless networks and Computational engineering.
  • To exhibit professional competence and leadership qualities with a harmonious blend of ethics leading to an integrated personality development.


Faculty has taken up research issues of contemporary relevance and have good publications in IEEE transactions, ACM, Wiley, Elsevier and other highly reputed journals.
