The ECE department of SRM University is ABET accredited and is one of the most sought after departments in the University. But, that being said, the placements are a quite disappointing show.
The placements usually happen round the year. It mostly comprises of software services/product based companies, including Amazon, Mu sigma, Works Applications, Cognizant, Wipro, Infosys, SAP etc. There is no dearth for the no of companies that come for recruiting but do not expect many core electronics companies to turn up. The only ones that come are KPIT, Schneider Electric etc. And they just take a handful. So, in all probability you might get placed in an IT company.
Speaking of quality, yes; the ECE department is one of the best and most respected ones in the university. There are some highly qualified professors who are quite approachable and friendly, even to UG students even though they don’t teach any course at UG level. If you are keen and passionate about what you learn, opportunities are galore. There are various clubs or project teams that recruit students and allow you to take part in national/international level competitions. If you can make use of these opportunities and build a holistic resume, get a good score in GRE, you can definitely make it into some of the best universities in US or Europe.
