Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

Meghnad Saha Institute of  Technology


Welcome to the website of the Dept. of Electronics and Communication Engineering at MSIT. The main thrust of the department is technological research and education. The faculty members teach a wide variety of core and elective courses for under-graduate students from the engineering departments of the institute. The department has strong research activities in the field of Device modeling, Low power VLSI circuit Design, Communications and Networking, Real Time Embedded Systems, IoT etc. The setting up of the IEEE MSIT Student Branch, IEEE MSIT Electron Devices Society Student Branch Chapter and IEEE MSIT Communication Society Student Branch Chapter in this department have not only created new opportunities for research collaboration within and across the institute, it has also provided avenues for new research areas for graduated students seeking admission for higher studies after graduation. The departmental faculties are involved in a number of research activities independently, or in collaboration with faculty members from other departments of the reputed Universities like Jadavpur University, MAKAUT, IIEST Shibpur, as part of national or international research networks and partnerships.

The department has special labs like Advance VLSI Lab, Innovation lab, Advance Networking Lab to encourage students to perform innovative projects and advance research works. Many research papers (SCI and reputed Journals, IEEE and non IEEE Conferences) are published by our students on a regular basis. Students are encouraged to take part in National and International innovative competitions. One of our student groups received the 1st runner up prize (USD 5000) in Texas instrument Innovation Challenge 2015 as a result of our constant motivation and guidance. In 2010, one of the groups of ECE Dept. has been awarded as finalist in the “CADENCE DESIGN” organized by CADENCE Bangalore, India. Few student papers have been selected as best papers in IEEE conferences in last 3 years. Teachers and students are motivated to file PATENTS of their research works. Few patents have been filed already by the teachers and students of this department.

The alumni of the department are well placed in academia, NGOs and in government and private sector. We have an Alumni advisory Board consists of Alumni who are now in core hardware industry like MICROCHIP-USA, INTEL-USA, TI, AMD, FUJITSU, WIPRO, TCS, CTS, IBM, INFOSYS, ICICI, GOOGLE, STANDARD CHARTERED, GOOGLE etc and also doing research works/higher study in National/International universities/IITs/IISCs like IISC Bangalore, IIT Chennai, IIT Kharagpur, Arizona State University, Colorado State University, Florida university, Louisiana State university etc. This alumni advisory board provides unique opportunities for aspiring students by sharing their skills and experiences.

The department and its faculty members conduct seminars/workshops in almost every month for the efficacious outputs. As the Dept. of ECE of MSIT grows in stature and quality, we aspire to considerably expand its research and teaching activities in new directions, and welcome all initiatives and support which would help us work towards that goal.

Welcome to the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) at MSIT, Kolkata. The ECE department is one of the oldest and most established department at MSIT, Kolkata. The department offers B.Tech and M.Tech, programs. Many faculty members are currently guiding Ph. D students also.


The vision of the ECE department is to create talented and socially responsible engineers to make a better India and, in turn, a better world. It will strive to become a hub of research excellence in cutting edge, state of the art, and contemporary areas of national and international relevance. The department also envisions itself as a center of excellence in teaching to create a well-educated, technically competent, and socially responsible workforce for meaningful, inclusive, and overall societal development of India and the rest of the world.


The mission of the department is to impart world-class training to its undergraduate and postgraduate students. It plans to create an excellent national workforce by imparting students a high-quality education, cutting-edge research exposure, and a world-class innovation ecosystem. Additionally, it plans to formulate and implement novel teaching mechanisms to provide its students a holistic exposure to a world-class education. As an outcome, a large no. of students is currently placed in Google, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Intel, Texus Instrument, Qualcomm, Synopsys, Microchip, Sankalp Semiconductor, AMD, ARM, Tata Elxi, Nvidia, Samsung, IBM, CTS, Capgemini, Accenture, Delloite, TCS, Infosys, just to name a few. Besides, significant number of students have carried forward their higher studies in leading Institutes like UCB-Berkley, USA; ASU-Arizona, USA, NUS-Singapore, CSU-Colorado, USA; UF-Florida, USA; University of Utah, USA; MSU-Michigan, USA; TU-Dresden, Germany, McMaster University, Canada; IISC-Bangalore, India, Many IITs, to name a few. Several ECE alumni have made ECE, MSIT proud. Many of them are the members of Alumni association of the department who are guiding the current final and pre-final year students to set up their paths for enriched career. The department is also setting up the research collaboration with reputed Institutes like EPFL, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, Karunya University, Calcutta University and Jadavpur University toincrease the employability of the students.


The ECE department has always been well recognized for its excellent teaching standards in India.Current members of ECE department have published 250 papers, along with students of ECE department in reputed International journals and Conferences.Dr.  Manash Chanda and Dr.  Swapnadip De have published books from reputed International publishing houses. Dr.  ChandiPani,  along with other faculty members and students of ECE department have published 5 patents. ECE faculty members have been traditionally contributing to professional activities both within and outside the Institute. Currently, Dr.Manash Chanda is serving as Vice Chairman of IEEE EDS Kolkata Chapter. He is also the member of IEEE Region 10 Conference Quality and Management Committee. Dr. Swarnil Roy is also serving as the Secretary of the IEEE Solid State Circuit Society, Kolkata Chapter. Dr. Swapnadip De served IEEE Kolkata Section as ExComm. Member for 4 years. Several faculties from ECE are currently serving as Centre Heads within the Institute. Dr. Sudip Dogra is heading the Institution Innovation Council and Incubation Centre under MSME. Many students have won prestigious position in National Design contests organized by Texus Instruments, CADENCE, AICTE etc


ECE Dept. has founded IEEE MSIT Student Branch, IEEE MSIT Electron Device Society Student Branch Chapter and IEEE MSIT Communication Society Student Branch Chapter to coordinate all the technical activities like Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Talksetc to make the students technically competent and professionally viable. As the Dept. of ECE of MSIT grows in stature and quality, we aspire to considerably expand its research and teaching activities in new directions, and welcome all initiatives and support which would help us work towards that goal.
