The Department of Electronics was established in 1984 and the programme Physics, Mathematics and Electronics (PME) became a Grant-in-Aid programme in 1988. The Department offers undergraduate programmes in Electronics. With a legacy of thirty-eight years, our mission is to develop young men and women with active and creative minds, inculcating a scientific temper in them. We try to achieve this by exposing them to theories and applications of Electronic Science that are in tandem with the latest technological developments.
We update our syllabus according to the latest trends in the industry and the trends in highly interdisciplinary research going between Electronics and other subjects. The Department has been recognised by DBT through the award of DBT-STAR college status in 2019. We wish to help our students expand the horizons of their understanding concerning the revolutionary contribution of Electronics to human well-being and also to facilitate the actualisation of their rich potential for unique contributions to life-enhancing technology. During the course of their study, the students learn about various topics under Electronics, like Analog Electronics, Digital Electronics, Sensors, Communication Electronics, Microprocessors and Microcontrollers. To give an edge to the students we have incorporated hardware description language and other relevant software in the syllabus. The students get hands-on expertise and prepare interesting circuits and projects during their course of study. The Department comprises a versatile and experienced faculty. The spacious laboratories are well equipped with the latest devices and instruments.
The Department provides a platform for students to indulge in electronics-related activities both at intra-collegiate and intercollegiate levels through its academic club named JET club. This helps in the team building and holistic development of young minds. The Department organises its popular Annual Inter-College Fest ‘SHOCK’ every year.
We offer an inclusive, supportive and academically challenging learning environment. With personal attention and mentoring from faculty and collaborative hands-on projects, students are inspired to excel and innovate.
“Wonder why I wonder
Why wonder? I wonder..”
We believe that this sense of wonderment, thirst for knowledge and wisdom is innate to all human beings. This forms the cornerstone of the philosophy of the School of Physical Sciences that comprises of the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Electronics and Statistics of the St Joseph’s University. We use these subjects as our tools to nurture logical reasoning ability, a sense of wonderment and scientific temper among our students.
The Department of Mathematics has nearly a century of history, being one of the first science departments to be started in the erstwhile St. Joseph’s College (now St. Joseph’s University). The youngest department in this school is the Department of Statistics. All these departments, however, are at the forefront of knowledge creation and dissemination in their respective fields. Many of the teachers are active researchers in diverse fields like Astrophysics, Number Theory, Markov Chains, Internet of Things etc. Our faculty members are sought after by other institutes and departments as resource persons for various teacher training programmes, conferences, seminars and workshops. Some of them are part of the Board of Studies of other universities and colleges, as we believe that together we can grow.
Our alumni and alumnae are spread far and wide around the globe. Some of them are eminent scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs in India and abroad. Some others are delivering yeomen service for the upliftment of the poor and downtrodden the world over. We are proud of all of them and of the fact that they are all true Josephites, upholding the motto of our university Fide et Labore (Faith and Toil).
We welcome all of you to be a part of this great adventure at the School of Physical Sciences…
