The Electronics and Communication Students Association “NICSA” was started in the year 2010 with a view to impart technical skills among students by training the students to present papers in technical seminars and to do mini projects. Students are also encouraged to take up sponsored projects. In addition, Industrial visit, technical talks and guest lectures will be arranged. Experts and working professionals from the industry, research and development centers & the academia are regularly invited to share their experience & to impart knowledge to the E & C Engineering students. Activities will be done to nurture & foster leadership qualities in students & also for team building. Regular workshops will be conducted with eminent resource persons from Industry to enhance the practical knowledge of the students. A Wall magazine named “JnanaVahini” is published every week which will show case the talents of students in curricular and co-curricular activities. Students will be trained in new software’s as per industrial need.
