‘ASGEC’ – Association of Saintgits Electronics and Communication was officially inaugurated in the year 2004. In association with ASGEC, the department annually organizes a national level technical festival ‘Horizon’, the flagship event of the department that provides a platform for students to showcase their technical skills. In order to enhance their leadership capability, organizing skills and multifaceted talents, we organize various programmes such as Quiz, technical trainings, alumni interactions, Gyanikoppam – chat with a scholar etc regularly. In 2019 the undergraduate programme, B.Tech in Robotics and Automation took form under our department. Thus our association was renamed as ‘RACEE’ – Robotics, Automation, Communication and Electronics Engineering Association. Now all the department programmes are conducted under the banner of RACEE.
