Electronics at SWEC 01

Electronics, as a field of study is in great demand from a couple of years. Engineering seats for electronic subjects this year are selling like hot cakes. Sri Devi Engg College offers three course fields dealing with electronics – Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE), Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE).

Sri Devi Women’s Engg College (SWEC) was established in the academic year 2001 – ‘02 with the permission of the AICTE, New Delhi and Government of AP. It is affiliated to the JNT University Hyderabad. It has an intake of 120 students into the field of ECE and an intake of 60 students each in EEE and EIE courses. The seats for ECE start to fill from around 6000 rank in EAMCET, while the seats for EEE and EIE are less preferred when compared to ECE. Under management quota donation for ECE branch is about Rs. 4 – 5 lakhs apart from the yearly fees of Rs.90,000/- (Ninety thousand rupees). When it comes to EEE and EIE the donation ranges around Rs. 1.5 – 2 lakhs apart from the yearly fees.

The Department of Electronics & Communications is headed by Prof. S.Suryanarayana, a very experienced man in the department. The Department of Electrical & Electronics is headed by Prof. D.N.Rao also a well experienced faculty person. The Department of Electronics & Instrumentation is headed by Mr.K.Tulasi Ram, who is relatively a new comer compared to other heads of the electronics department.

The department has about 30 faculty member. Since most of the subjects of the three courses are common or share a lot of similar topics, the faculty for three courses is also shared. The faculty of electronics contains a good blend of experienced and new comers. “It’s nice to have pass outs as faculty ‘coz it’s easy to synchronize with them and they are a little less strict when compared to the other experienced faculty”, say a group of ECE students of the college. The HOD of the ECE department is very well known for his generous behavior towards students. “The HOD provides us with a lot of important information and gives us a good guidance for our projects and seminars”, says a 4th year ECE student Divya.

Looking at the infrastructure of the electronics department, the college has 7 laboratories for subjects like Digital Communications, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Electrical Machines, Control Systems, Power Electronics etc. The lab equipment is fair and the labs qualify for above average. “In our 1st year, we had EDC lab and we used to literally grab the voltmeters and ammeters from the racks as fast as possible as very few of the voltmeters and ammeters used to be properly working. People, who are late to take them would often have to wait until others complete their experiment. I even remember having our transformers burst in the mid of experiments”, recalls a 3rd year ECE student. The semi-conductor kits and the trainer kits are limited in number and not proportional to the number students so students have to use the kits in groups of 4 or 5 usually. “The micro processors lab has just about 10 systems for 30 students and hence 3 students have to share the system and do the programming part”, says another 3rd year student.

The career opportunities such as Instrumentation System Engineer, Telecommunications Engineer, System Design Engineer, Radar Engineering, Electronic Control System Engineer, Telemetry Engineering, Broadcasting Engineer, and Quality & Testing Engineer are open for the students of electronics. The training and placement cell of the college takes special interest in developing good rapport of the students so that they find it easy attending many interviews. Many of the pass outs from the college have been recruited into companies like Satyam, Infosys, APSEB-DE and CISCO.

Many seminars and workshops are conducted in the college from time to time for the students so that they get acquainted with the industrial progress. Seminars on Automation of Industrial Process, Process Control Instrumentation and workshop on PLC Programming were very recently conducted for the students of electronics in the college. Many guest lectures are also provided for students.

It can, in the end, be summarized that a seat in the electronics department in Sri Devi College is not a bad choice. It has good team of faculty members and average laboratories but provides a nice scope for the students to grow their talent and emerge as successful engineers.
