The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Ghousia College of Engineering was started during the year 1985, and has an intake of 60 students every year. The B.E program is approved by AICTE and Government of Karnataka. It is affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum and accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA). The main aim of the department is to provide quality education in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering, as the global scene is exposed to new & recent emerging technologies especially in Communication, VLSI subsystems and embedded technologies. The 21st century is the century of knowledge and technical shifts.. Hence the Management of Ghousia Industrial and Engineering Trust rightly decided to explore the much-required changes the society needs today.
The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has separate laboratories well equipped with the latest equipment and satisfying curriculum requirements of Visvasvaraya Technical University and AICTE New Delhi. The faculties are well qualified and there is lot of enthusiasm amongst them to go for research and acquire knowledge continuously.   The department has started IEEE students' branch of GCE in the year 2006 and the centre of Excellence in VLSI in 2010. The Department has received Rs. 10.26 lakhs for modernizing the VLSI design and Microcontroller Lab under MODROBS schemes from AICTE in the year 2007, Rs. 8.6 lakhs for modernizing the Digital Signal Processing Lab under MODROBS schemes from AICTE in the year 2009.

The staff are deputed to attend seminar / workshops etc to update their knowledge, apart from conducting such events in the college itself. The faculty has delivered lectures / presented papers at International Journals, International & National level Conferences. The students are also encouraged to present papers at symposia. The department is striving hard in training the students not only in their studies but also to develop their personality and other qualities required to face interviews.

To be recognized as the best Electronics and Communication Engineering Department in our country by imparting good quality Education and moulding the students to become good citizens.
