Can we compare ETM with any other branch?It is considered as equivalent to Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering offered in different universities. Syllabus of ETM department is almost similar to ECE department to a major extent, for which reason as per JNTU, ETM is equivalent to ECE for higher studies and employment.
  • In IV year syllabus, more emphasis is given to telematics subjects and there is variation of 4 subjects. Multimedia and signal coding, Advanced telecommunication technologies, Wireless communications and networks and Wireless sensor networks are opted for ETM.
  • ETM has two exclusive laboratories (i) Computer Networking Lab and (ii) Advanced Telecommunications Lab which provide practical exposure to the students on latest technologies in telecommunications and computer networking.
What is the core difference between ETM and ECE regarding course and career?ECE Students study conventional Electronic Communication subjects but in ETM course, emphasis is laid on computer communication subjects like Computer Networks, ISDN, ATM networks, Advanced Telecommunication Technologies and their applications. Career wise, ETM course is treated as equivalent to ECE for higher studies and employment. In addition to that ETM students are preferred in core telecommunication & computer communication fields compared to ECE Students.
