Welcome to
Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics

The Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics was established in 1949 as a post-graduate teaching and research department of the University of Calcutta. This is the first University department in India engaged in teaching and research in Electronics, Communication, Computers and all branches of Radio Science.

Since its inception, the Department has witnessed a number of progressive changes. In 1963, it was recognized by the University Gants Commission as a Centre of Advanced Study: a unique distinction amongst all such Centres in the country that is still earned by the Department. It has been given the status of Networking Resource Centre in Physical Science, one amongst ten such Centres created by the UGC in the country. Other National Centres also exist in the department. The department has collaboration in teaching and research with a number of institutions in India and abroad. The ex-students of this department have served/ are serving as Vice Chancellors, Directors of IITs and other Central Government academic/research institutions, Professors and Aministrators in India and abroad. In addition, many of our alumni members have earned prestigious awards for academic achievements.

The website of the department was created more than a decade ago. The necessity of updating and overhauling it has been felt over the last few years. It is hoped that the present website will be able to provide almost all information related to academic, research, and other activities of the department including its alumni.

We cordially welcome suggestions to improve the contents of the current website.
