Today’s world is full of electronics items that we use in our day to day life. From Television to Computers modern day lifestyle is heavily depended on electronics. On the other hand advancement in means of communication has made people to people contacts fast, smooth, and hassle-free. When this knowledge of electronics combines with the advancement in telecommunication then a wonderful device like smartphones are produced.


To keep up the demand and supply of electronics items and maintenance of telecommunication channel it is necessary to have qualified and trained manpower. BE in Electronics and Telecom course aims at providing this qualified manpower that the industry demands today.



The course is designed to provide technical knowledge and practical skills to the students that would be required at the field level when they enter the job market. Thus, the course acts as a bridge between industry and potential candidates to maintain the demand and supply chain in the job market.

B.E. in Electronics and Telecom Engineering course is offered by a good number of colleges across the country to candidates who have passed their 10+2 or equivalent level examination from a recognized state or central board. Students can take admission in the course through Common Entrance Test conducted by certain exam conducting authorities such as IITs, BITS, as well as separate exams conducted by respective Colleges/Universities (such as LUPNEST) that are offering this course.
