Ph.D. in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering

The department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (EXTC), K. J. Somaiya College of Engineering (KJSCE) promotes research and innovation relating to design and development in the field of telecommunications and electronic circuits.

The department is actively involved and has undertaken various consultancy sponsored research projects in the areas of Signal Processing, Communication Engineering, RF & Microwave, VLSI & Embedded Systems, Information Processing and Intelligence Systems. In order to foster research culture further, the department has established Ph.D. research Centre in 2020 under Somaiya Vidyavihar University (SVU).

The Department has good infrastructural facilities and laboratories equipped with state-of-the art computational facilities as required for quality research. Moreover as a part of industry-institute interaction, the department has set up centers of excellence in collaboration with industries such as Cisco and Texas Instruments. The department also has well-qualified faculty members to guide research scholars in the areas of competitive research. The primary goal of the department is to facilitate research and extend resources to budding researchers thus enabling them to undertake research of use to the society and community. After successfully completing this doctorate programme candidates can get opportunities to contribute on top positions as a consultant, entrepreneur, policy maker, auditor, technical expert, etc. in industry and also in academics.
