The Electronics and Communication Engineering was one of the branches started in the year 2003, under the aegis of University College of Engineering, established in the year 2003, at Punjabi University, Patiala (Main Campus).
We made a modest beginning with a single under-graduate course of four-year duration, viz., Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Electronics and Communication Engineering. With a view to provide quality education, we took a leap forward by launching a five-year course, viz., Engineering Management Integrated Programme, for an overall development of the students in engineering and management skills, and a two-year course, viz., Master of Technology course in Electronics and Communication Engineering, in 2009 followed by a three-year Master of Technology course in Electronics and Communication Engineering, in 2011 on part-time basis.
In September 2013, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering got it's independent identity. Presently, there are 33 faculty members in the department, 4 Professors, 1 Associate Professors and 28 Assistant Professors along with well-trained technical and non- technical staff to assist them. Each faculty member is actively involved in research work in their respective fields of specialization. Practical aspects of various subjects is supported by well-equipped labs, viz., Electronic Devices Lab, Circuit Theory Lab, Digital Electronic Circuits Lab, Analog Electronic Circuits Lab, Analog Communication Systems Lab, Micro Processor & Applications Lab, Digital System Design Lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab, Digital Communication Systems Lab, Optical Communications Lab, Microwave Engineering Lab, Power Electronics Lab, Wireless & Mobile Communications Lab, etc. A Research Lab with full-featured software and hardware equipment is also present to assist the M.Tech. and the Ph.D. students in their respective areas of research.

Out of current strength of 33 Faculty members, 17 members have completed Ph. D while rest are pursuing. Till date from the department, 14 candidates have completed their Ph. D., 04 candidates have submitted their thesis while 45 are presently registered for research work. The faculty members have published more than 150 papers in SCI journals and around 10 books. Among the faculty members: Dr. Manjeet Singh Patterh has been awarded Sir Thomas Memorial prize by Institution of Engineers (India) twice for the research contributions in the area of Digital Communications. Dr. Simranjit Singh had been selected for Raman Postdoc fellowship and spent one year at The Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, NY, USA as Postdoc Associate under the supervision of Prof. Govind P. Agrawal.
The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering encourages active learning to build critical thinking skills of its students. It also prepare committed students for quality research. It has mandate of research in the field of wireless communication, optical communication, Image processing, Antenna Design, Digital Signal processing, microwave-millimeter wave communication. In the coming years, the department aims to develop into a world class center for higher academic and industrial research and innovation.
On these lines, it puts immense emphasis on promoting cutting edge Research and publications of high quality. Recognizing work done, it has been successful in securing 05 externally sponsored research projects funded by bodies: Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DEITY), Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi; University Grant Commission (UGC), and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) of total worth over Rs. 1.84 crore.
