In order to satisfy ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) requirements, a student majoring in Chemical, Civil, or Mechanical Engineering must complete one and a half years of engineering topics, consisting of a minimum of 68 units of Engineering Fundamentals and Engineering Depth appropriate to the student's field of study. In most cases, students meet this requirement by completing the major program core and elective requirements. A student may need to take additional courses in Depth in order to fulfill the minimum requirement. Appropriate courses assigned to fulfill each major's program are listed online at in the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs.
Analysis and design of nonlinear systems. A general course in nonlinear systems with examples from multiple engineering and science disciplines. Topics include phase planes, Lyapunov's theory, describing functions, iterative maps, chaos and fractals, and nonlinear optimization methods.
Transfer credit is given for courses taken elsewhere whenever the courses are equivalent or substantially similar to Stanford courses in scope and rigor. The policy of the School of Engineering is to study each transfer student's preparation and make a reasonable evaluation of the courses taken prior to transfer by means of a petition process. Inquiries may be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs in 135 Huang Engineering Center. For more information, see the transfer credit section of the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs at .
The mission of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, National Institute of Technology Silchar is to prepare our graduates to begin a lifetime of professional creativity and leadership.
The Electrical Engineering Graduate Program, in fulfillment of its responsibility to graduate highly qualified engineers, has established certain policies and procedures. In addition to the requirements of the Graduate School listed elsewhere, to continue in the program each electrical engineering graduate student must maintain at least a B (3.0) GPA in all electrical engineering coursework and at least a B (3.0) GPA in all coursework for M.S. students. A student working toward a Ph.D. must maintain a 3.5 GPA in all electrical engineering coursework and at least a 3.5 GPA in all coursework.
Following are stages to the completion of the requirements for a doctoral degree in the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering. Each candidate for the degree must:
A doctoral student’s committee shall consist of at least five members of the Graduate Faculty, a majority of whom must be in Electrical Engineering.
Overall, the benefits offered are common with most other jobs, and are up to date with today’s standards.
Requirements / Starting Out
People planning on becoming electronic engineers should have very strong problem-solving abilities, mathematical and scientific capabilities, and a willingness to learn throughout ones career.
Students pursuing the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Doctor of Science (DSc) degrees in Electrical Engineering or Systems Science & Mathematics must complete a minimum of 72 credit hours of post-baccalaureate study consistent with the residency and other applicable requirements of Washington University in St. Louis and the Graduate School. These 72 units must consist of at least 36 units of course work and at least 24 units of research, and may include work done to satisfy the requirements of a master's degree in a related discipline. Up to 24 units for the PhD and 30 units for the DSc may be transferred to Washington University in St. Louis from another institution.
Most electronics engineers work in teams with other professional engineers on projects and other experiments, which enforce the need for strong communication skills (Stine, 128).
To prepare for college most electronic engineers aim for honors level math and science courses along with other curriculum such as English, social studies, and computer programming classes.
The Vision of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, National Institute of Technology Silchar is to be a model of excellence for undergraduate and post graduate education and research in the country.
In the late fifties, the Government of India decided to establish Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) under the Quality Technical Education Policy-one each in every major state-with the prime objectives of imparting quality technical education throughout the country and fostering national integration. The Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program was started with 3 branches of engineering namely, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. Considering the success in achieving the objective of ensuring a promising carrier of the students of the above disciplines, inspired the committee to come up with new branches which led to the foundation of Electronics and Communication Department in 1983 with the initial intake of 20 students in under graduate (UG) program. Later on, due to successful completions of several batches, the strength of the department increased to 30 in 1988-89, 40 in 2005-06, 60 in 2006-07, 92 in 2008-09 and finally a total of 120 students in 2013-14. In 2013-14, the department bagged NBA accreditation for 5 years for UG program and became second NIT in India whose department of ECE has achieved this accreditation. Continuing with the successful road map, the department started its first post graduate (PG) program in Microelectronics and VLSI Design in 2007-08 with an initial intake of 13 students whose strength increased to 20 in 2008-09. But later on, in order to come up with a new specialization in PG program with the existing facilities, the number of intake was scaled down to 10 in 2014-15. In 2013-14, the department came up with a new PG program in Communication and Signal processing engineering.
A Stanford undergraduate may work simultaneously toward two bachelor's degrees or toward a bachelor's and a master's degree, that is, B.A. and M.S., B.A. and M.A., B.S. and M.S., or B.S. and M.A. The degrees may be granted simultaneously or at the conclusion of different quarters. Five years are usually required for a dual or coterminal program or for a combination of these two multiple degree programs.
