Department of Avionics


  • To be globally recognized for being at the forefront of innovation in higher education and research for empowering students in Avionics and allied areas to contribute significantly to the benefit of the society at large and Indian space science and technology
  • Inspire and educate our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students and impart deep understanding of Electrical, Electronics and Communication, Computing and related areas.
  • Nurture the spirit of innovation and creativity among students and contribute to the growth of the nation through excellence in teaching, research and development following ethical practices.
  • Develop skills in design and building of systems that impact society and space technology.
  • Continue to collaborate and establish a peer-to-peer network with institutions and industries of national and international repute.

The Department of Avionics at the institute was established in the year 2007. Over the last two decades, the department has grown with expertise and competence in the core of Avionics (which is a perfect blend of Electronics Communications, Electrical and computer science engineering) curriculum and research. The department offers undergraduate program (B.Tech.) in Electronics Communications engineering (Avionics) and post graduate courses (M.Tech.) in RF and Microwave Communication, Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Control Systems, Power Electronics, and VLSI & Microsystems. The sanctioned strength of B. Tech., and M. Tech., are respectively 66 and 50 students per year. Moreover, the department also offers Ph.D. in various discipline of Avionics/Electrical/Computer Science Engineering. At present, the department has 50+ Ph.D scholars. Several sponsored candidates from ISRO and DoS (Department of Space) carry out their post-graduate studies in the department. Besides this, the department also offers postdoctoral fellows time to time and inducts PDFs through various government schemes.

The vision of the Department is to educate graduate, post graduate and PhD students with substantial knowledge, skills, and expertise in the area of Avionics Engineering and thereby produce quality human resources in the area. It is also envisaged to undertake futuristic research in areas related to Electronics, Space Science and Technology which can feed to the ISROs programmes at suitable juncture. Moreover, all graduate students from department get opportunities to build their career in various leading public and private organizations through institute placement assistance. With this in mind a well-organized academic and research programme supported with lab facilities comparable with the world class institutions is provided to achieve excellence in the field of electronics, in particular to the Space Science and Technology and to meet the National requirements in the field of Science and Technology.

The curriculum of various academic programme ensures the deeper understanding of the fundamentals and advanced courses of Avionics with a special thrust to enhance research capability of students to undertake the challenges in the field of Avionics Engineering. The designed curriculum consists of many state of the art courses from various disciplines such as Analog Circuits, Digital System Design, Communication Engineering, Signal Processing, RF and Microwave Engineering, VLSI Design, Navigation, Control and Guidance, Computer Technology and Power Electronics. The primary focus of the developed curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. The Department offers a large number of cutting-edge elective courses for providing a wide spectrum of options to the students to pursue their interests. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new scientific and technological developments and cater to the evolving requirements of industries and government. Undergraduate students are encouraged to undertake various academic and industrial research projects.

The Department maintains active research groups for carrying out collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Furthermore, the department has a very strong research collaboration with the Indian Space Research Organization and the Department of Space. Within the department, state-of-the-art research facilities have been developed to support our academic programs and research. The department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. Faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded in their respective fields. Many of them have been conferred with many prestigious awards at national and international levels. Several faculty members serve on the editorial boards of national and international journals, regularly review technical articles for journals, and organize international symposia and conferences.
