ECE Association

The ECE Association was the conception of Dr. A.L. Abdusattar (former HOD) in March 1992 seeded with the idea of organizing a national level technical symposium which would be the first of its kind in the college.

Since its conception in 1992, the ECE Association has played the vital role of being the much needed bridge between the students and industry level research and development.

The Association organizes several events throughout the academic year like guest lectures, competitions, field trips, tech talks and most importantly PROBE, one of the largest department symposium in India.

PROBE has played host to several industry giants such as Atmel, National Instruments, CISCO, Cypress Semiconductors, Intel, Schneider Electric and Texas Instruments through workshops and technical talks at the NIT, Trichy campus. With active participation from students in and around the region and recently with international level participation, PROBE has escalated to being a series of events held throughout the year.

The Association works with the following objectives:

  • All students of the Department of ECE, NIT Trichy are given default membership
  • To provide for all supportive co-curricular training required by students to enhance their curricular performance and keep them updated with recent trends in industry
  • To work towards bridging the distance between the textbook syllabi taught and the practical application in industry
  • To groom and nurture the qualities of teamwork, leadership, mutual understanding and co-existence and to provide exposure to public and executive communication
  • To motivate continued inspiration of the students towards core research in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering

The ECE Association maintains 3 websites for its members, symposium and national connectivity respectively.

The association has currently taken up the initiative to connect the students in all other sister NITs on a single online platform with active participation from industry and academic researchers.
