It has been rightly said by his excellency, Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, President of our glorious India that Technical Institutes plays a vital role in moulding the character and shaping the personality of the youth and exactly the same has been done by Mehr Chand Polytechnic College ,Jalandhar.Electronics and Communication Engg . Diploma was started in the year 1982 and now this department is approaching sky-scrapping heights of glory and success and it has made remarkable progress. This department stands as an epitome of excellence with the glorious tradition of achievements in almost all spheres. This department won the best polytechnic award amongst the 12 Polytechnics participated throughout the country under the “PROJECT IMPACT” from the Deptt. Of Electronics, Govt. of India, sponsored by Swiss Govt.
E.C.E Department offers premier professional training with an eye on the modern developments in technology, since its inception, graduating students have been well placed in either deemed academic institutions or top industrial establishments in Punjab.
The foremost objective of the department is to hone technical skills demanded by today’s engineering professionals by providing a sound technical platform and required knowledge base. It prepares them to meet the challenges faced by today’s professional by exposing them to a wide array of cutting-edge technologies.

Major Project work done by students of the diploma aims at developing innovative skills and hands on practice in the students; where they implement their theoretical knowledge and skills to solve the industrial problems or by undertaking a project by organization. The faculty of department identifies aptitude and skill strength of students to assign various projects.
The project assignment list is as follows
– PLC BASED INDUSTRIAL PROCESS AND OFFICE AUTOMATION
– ROBOTICS BASED CRANE SYSTEM
– AUTOMATIC TOLL PLAZA
– REAL TIME CLOCK WITH BELL

The criteria for accessing student performance include planning, execution, and quality of Performance; Report writing skills and viva-voce.
There is a gap between the products of Engineering Institute and requirements of industries, with the motive of reducing this colossal gap; the students have to undergone training in relevant industry. Report Writing Skills and Seminar Presentation do the evaluation of performance.
A quality placement of any institute is the caliber of student, which has correlation with effort of the students and faculty. I feel immense proud to in form that many industries approach us for campus placements like M/S TRIDENT GROUP, HINDUSTAN COMPUTERS, LG ELECTRONICS, MOHINDRA & MOHINDRA, LARSEN & TURBO etc.
By considering, the need of industries for soft skill & interview skills and working with this aim in mind, at Electronics & Communication Engg. Department, we lay special emphasis on personality development. Workshops on personality development, interview skill and behavior modification etc. are regular feature at department. Our faculty and students are also involved in developing and delivering executive development programs for industries.
