Department of Electronics
DDU Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur
Electronics has become part of modern hi-tech world. Since the invention of transistors, the electronic devices and its technology has gradually undergone a phenomenal change from component level to IC level, i.e. SSI, MSI, LSI, VLSI and ULSI. Presently we live in a world of sub-micron electronics, nano-electronics and molecular electronics which have multifaceted applications. Be it Communication Technology, Bio-informatics, Bio-Technology, Medicine, Administration, etc.,Electronics is omnipresent.
Sometimes ago, Electronics was a part of Physics curriculum where greater emphasis is laid on the physics of devices and some basic circuit applications; now a day it is an independent branch. The phenomenal advancement and diversification in electronics led to the necessity of identifying aspect of electronics on a common platform with a view to bridging the gap between Physics and Engineering. As a policy decision, therefore, Electronics was made a part of curriculum at the undergraduate and Post Graduate levels in many Indian Universities since 1980. A course in Electronics at undergraduate level was started in this University in the Department of Physics in 1986. Ever since need to create a full-fledged environment for teaching and research in Electronic Science was keenly felt and as such Post Graduate course in electronics was launched in 1995 under self-financing scheme in the Department of Physics.
M.Sc.in Electronics, as a separate discipline, was introduced by the Department of Physics in the session 1995-96. Since then fifteen batches have successfully completed their studies. During this period we have been able to establish very fruitful collaboration for the training and project of M.Sc. Electronics students with leading organizations like CEERI Pilani, DRDO Delhi, IIT Delhi,IIT Kanpur, IIT Dhanbad, IIT BHU, SCL Mohali, DOEACC Gorakhpur etc. The pass out students are working on leading positions in various reputed institutions and Universities like IITs, NITs, BITs, CEERI, ISRO, SCL and MNCs like Intel, Qualcom, Synopsis, ST Microelectronics, Texas Instruments etc.
The thrust area of research in the department are Digital Signal Processing, Fast Processor Design, Material Science and Solar Cell etc. The department has two faculty members Prof. Manish Mishra and Dr.Kusum Rawat. A collaborative project entitled “Multiwavelength excitableluminescent ink and its detection device for security application” funded by National Project Implementation Unit under the co-investigation of Dr. Kusum Rawat is running in the department.
· B.Sc.- The department under the faculty of Science offers Electronics for 3 years
· M.Sc.- in Electronics is a Four semester course with 15 seats per year
· Ph.D.- in Electronics is offered through Research Entrance Test.
