School of ECE is at the forefront in imparting quality education that truly reflects the changing needs of the industry. Innovative teaching techniques like flipped classroom and integrated courses strengthen the course further.
1.Engineering Design & Product Realization
It is a unique design course offered to all sophomore (2nd year undergraduate) students. ECE students team up with Mechanical, Automation & Robotics, Electrical, and Computer Science students to design and build products in an interdisciplinary environment. The design ecosystem consists of Design Studio in the department and Makers Space in the institute’s joint facility. The various stages of this course are understanding the customer’s needs and evolving the engineering specifications, functional analysis, system modeling and co-simulation, conceptual design, detailed design, fabrication, and product testing. The course involves 1080 students from five departments making up 188 interdisciplinary teams creating IoT-enabled products.
2. Automotive Electronics
KLE Tech University is at the forefront of engineering education when training students to be industry-ready in the automotive domain. The university collaborates with giants from the industry, namely RBEI (BOSCH), KPIT, Continental, Mercedes Benz. School of ECE offers a curriculum vertical of Embedded Systems with a focus on automotive electronics. It includes a Model-Based Design approach for system development and exposure to current technological requirements and advances in passenger car safety, assistive technologies, infotainment, etc. Students actively participate and win prizes at national-level competitions like KPIT Sparkle and Bosch Inscribe, which foster innovation. This has enabled RBEI to award the college with the highest number of placements across India in 2018-19.
Prakalp is an initiative to strengthen the Analog VLSI Design vertical in the school. Students are trained in Analog circuit Design and Layout through an industry-oriented elective course during summer collaborating with Chip Design Company on campus, Sankalp Semiconductors. Further, it focuses on building competency through industry mentored mini, minor, and capstone projects. This has resulted in Cadence, NXP, Karmic, Zia, MMRFIC, Tessolve Sankalp semiconductors, etc.
4. Advanced Digital Logic Design & Advanced Digital Logic Verification
The school offers industry-driven courses in Digital VLSI called Advanced Digital Logic Design & Advanced Digital Logic Verification. These courses provide experiential learning through course/mini/minor projects mentored by Industry India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), Synopsys Electronics Education and Research (SEER). This enables exposure to current technological requirements and advances in digital VLSI. Students excelling in these courses are offered direct Internships and Placements at Synposis, Xilinx, AMD, BROADCOM.
5. Machine Learning
The school has been at the forefront of the latest tech trends globally. The school has offered machine Learning as a core course with active collaboration from Team Samsung, R&D, leading to many projects. The content includes Supervised, Unsupervised and Deep Learning Designed concerning standard online courses from Andrew N G: Introduction to machine learning of Stanford University. The course provides hands-on experience through a laboratory.
6. Flipped Classroom
The school has adopted an innovative course delivery technique across all semesters, focusing on one course per semester. The idea is to convert large classrooms into interactive problem-solving sessions. It addresses considerable classroom strength with uniform learning, brings in different perspectives from industry experts. The initiative is through active collaboration with Industries like ekLakshya, Sankalp Semiconductors.
To equip with multiple skills and broader knowledge beyond what their major disciplines may provide, you can earn a minor. The purpose of this minor program is to designate a set of courses (15 credits) to provide additional content proficiency in an area of chosen academic specialization that will complement the student’s professional career.
This program enables non-circuit branch students to Communicate effectively with circuit domain engineers. It imparts the necessary insight into the Electronics and Embedded systems relevant to their respective core domain, interpreting and analyzing their domain applications’ interface requirements and specifications. A student opting for this minor program has to attain an additional 15 credits apart from their core branch credits of 176. Other schools in the university offer similar minor programs which students of ECE can opt from Entrepreneurship, Computer Science & Engineering, Innovation & Product Development, Robotics.
