A word or two about the prospects of studying Electronics Honours at Surendranath Evening College, Kolkata is in order...

Surendranath Evening College, Kolkata, is the 'evening-counterpart' of Surendranath College, one of the oldest colleges of India which had among many of its illustrious students, the first president of India, late Dr. Rajendra Prasad. It is a government aided, UGC recognized college affiliated to Calcutta University and located in the heart of central Kolkata.

The electronics honours course run by the college had its inception in 2002 and the department is proud to have two university toppers and many first class results till date.

Pass-outs from our department have gone on to pursue M.Sc. in Electronic Sc. or post graduation-B.Tech. and M.Tech. in Radio-physics and Information Technology from the esteemed Rajabazaar Science College of Calcutta University, State University of West Bengal, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAV) Indore, and other government institutes all over India.

Many of the ex-students are very well placed, be it in the software industry (Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Cognizant (CTS), and WIPRO), public sector companies like BSNL or in the academic field as teaching faculty in reputed colleges and schools.

The department has a limited number of seats, and consequently individual attention can be paid by the highly qualified faculty (students therefore do not require and are in fact discouraged to take help of private tuition). The departmental laboratory is equipped with number of oscilloscopes, function generators, fixed and variable power supplies, LCR multimeters, analog and digital milliammeters and voltmeters etc. The department also has a well-equipped computer room with a number of PCs (both branded: Lenovo and Compaq as well as assembled ones) where they take part in programming classes on C, FORTRAN, java and also those pertaining to numerical analysis, Spice and Assembly Language. Students are encouraged to perform their practical experiments on the bread-boards with individual components without using the so-called black-box kits, a practice which makes them all the more confidant while taking part in the final university practical examinations.

One of the unique advantages of pursuing the Electronics Honours course at Surendranath Evening College is that the college being an evening college, classes are held in the late afternoon and the evening, leaving enough time to the students to pursue short duration courses (subject to permission) in Information Technology, Computer and Electronics Hardware, Networking etc during the daytime.

The names of a few institutes offering such short-term courses are as follows:

The Youth Computer Training Centres of the Government of West Bengal (www.yctc.co.in) offer such short term courses on Web designing, Computer Aided Designing (CAD), Computer hardware maintenance, multimedia etc at very affordable rates.

The George Telegraph Training Institute (www.georgetelegraph.org/Curriculum.aspx) offers short term courses in electronics and also in computer applications.

The Indian Institute of Hardware Technology (www.iiht.com) offers various short-term courses for students pursuing graduation like certification courses of world renowned networking or software companies like Cisco, Microsoft, Red-Hat etc.

The DOEACC Kolkata Centre of Department of Information Technology, Government of India located at Jadavpur University Campus (Formerly Regional Computer Center) (www.doeacckolkata.in/default.aspx), and CMC (www.cmctraining.in/courses.html), a subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), also offer short term courses.

These courses, if done properly, may enhance the employability of the student at the time of applying for jobs after the completion of the Electronics Honours degree course in our college or elsewhere. Having said that, many topics on computers are already included in the syllabi of the Electronics Honours and the Computer Science General courses, and as such, students will get to lose little if they want not to pursue any short-term course alongside, as evidenced from the experiences of our well-placed ex-students.

From this year, all admissions to the college are being held online at www.snecadmissions.com.

Latest update on 13th July 2012: Fresh applications are invited at www.snecadmissions.com to fill up the vacant seats (between 16th July to 21st July (10am)).

The above is for information purpose only.

Meritorious (need not be exceptional!) and academically serious students, who wish to make a successful career in the interdisciplinary areas of electronics, physics and computer science, are hereby encouraged to apply.
