COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
I had an interest in Electronics since my school days and decided to pursue my under - graduation on the same. Choosing the department of ECE in Karunya was the right decision. The teacher-student relationship is very important in a college and the department has had a very healthy one, since day one. The faculties in the department are mostly PhD qualified. The exams are conducted frequently with three internal tests every 25th working day (of the total 90 working days) and finally an END semester exam. Its easy to pass the exam if you are regular in studies.
