The M.Tech (Communication System Engineering) is accredited by NBA for full Six Years (2019-2025).

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering offers following postgraduate program:

  • M.Tech. (Communication System Engineering),
  • Intake: 20
  • Admission through CCMT based on Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) scores. (There are no admissions for non-GATE candidates.)

The M. Tech. (CMN) is a two-year course oriented graduate program in which a student has to take a set of core, elective and project courses. The course work is spread across the first two semesters with an option of taking electives in the third semester.
