The Telecom Sector appears to be moving towards a revival in the coming times as is evident from the surveys conducted by India Brand Equity Foundation (www.ibef.org/industry/telecommunications.aspx),  the CCI (www.cci.in/pdfs/surveys-reports/telecom-sector-in-india.pdf ) and the Hindu (www.thehindu.com › Business › Budget). A revived telecom sectormeans a surge in the demand for telecom engineers, both fresh and experienced, and hence a boost in the placements for the ECE students in the near future. The EECE students of The NorthCap University (NCU), Gurgaon, one of the best engineering colleges in Delhi/NCR,with a higher knowledge base do remarkably well  in telecom, VLSI and IT industry as they are well-versed in skills demanded by these companies, particularly in new technology areas.  Keeping that in mind, choosing ECE from the NCU for graduation will be the first step towards a bright future for engineers in the making.

The EECE Department of the University has the same story of excellence as the University itself. It has a highly qualified and a motivated faculty to guide their students through their engineering programs at both graduate and post graduate levels. Most of the faculty members in the department are either PhD are pursuing PhD, remarkably headed by the HoD, an eminent scholar with a vast experience from the industry as well. There are well equipped labs in the department where the students perform their experiments, prepare for different competitions or work on their projects with the help of highly trained and skilled lab technicians. Workshops, seminars, industrial visits and competitions etc. are conducted regularly in the department to add to the knowledge base of the students in addition to what they are taught in the class rooms. This way they get to keep abreast of the latest technologies and developments in the industry and research fields to help them choose their career options.

In addition to the regular curriculum, there are a large number of value added courses being run in the department to further enhance the students’ skill set, be it soft skills, languages or competitive skills. Also classes like PDP, GK and recently introduced technical bridge courses give them an edge over others in their placement prospects. There are a number of hobby clubs the students can join to indulge their creative side. These clubs give them a platform to showcase their talents. There is a high frequency of alumni interaction where valuable tips for jobs and higher studies are imparted to the students by the alumni.

All these steps help the students in their overall development and make it possible for them to make it big in the world after they leave university.
