The present course on "Processing of Electronic Materials" is designed for the undergraduate students to develop the basic tools with which they can later learn about newly developed devices and applications. Obviously it will provide the students with a sound understanding of existing materials, devices and processing technologies.
Semiconductor materials, devices and processing technologies are the foundation of electronic industry which is the largest industry in the world with global sales over one trillion dollars since 1998.
The semiconductor industry which is a subset of electronic industry will grow at a faster rate in coming days and it will constitute 25% of the electronic industry in 2010. A basic knowledge of processing of electronic materials is essential to the understanding of advanced courses in electronics.
This knowledge will also enable a learner to contribute to the information age which is based on electronic technology. The course material on processing of electronic materials will be very useful to undergraduate students, post-graduate students, teachers and practitioners. A number of chosen problems will be solved to illustrate the concepts clearly.

Video Lectures on "Communication Engineering " by Prof. Surendra Prasad

Video Lecture Series from IIT Professors :
Communication Engineering by Prof. Surendra Prasad sir
Qualifications:      B.Tech. IIT Kharagpur ,
                           M.Tech. IIT Delhi , 
                           Ph. D. IIT Delhi.
Research Area:

  • Signal Processing and Communication,
  • Speech and Image Processing.

  • Prof. Surendra Prasad is the Ex-Director, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He received his B.Tech degree in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 1969, and the M.Tech. and Ph.D degrees in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi in 1971 and 1974 respectively. Dr. Prasad held many prestigious positions in his illustrious career. He is currently holding USHA Chair position. He was a Visiting Professor to the Department of Electrical Engineering, Lausanne, Switzerland and The Pennsylvania State University, USA.
    Teaching and Research Guidance has been the main thrust of his work for the last 34 years. The most significant part of the work comprises the development of new techniques and algorithms for signal processing, with contributions to the field covering the design of optimum signals and receivers; array pattern synthesis and optimal array processing; optimum MTI filters; adaptive signal processing; high resolution spectrum and direction estimation; deconvolution algorithms; higher order spectrum estimation; digital and wireless communications; and speech coding.
    As a teacher, he has been actively involved in manpower development programmes, first in the area of Sonar and Underwater Systems and more recently in Telematics and Communications. He has published more than 75 research papers in international journals of repute, and about 40 in prestigious international conferences. He has also written a large number of review articles and research reports and has edited three books. He undertook a large number of research and consultancy projects at IIT Delhi, some of which have resulted in key products or technologies for defence and industry.

    Dr. Prasad has received numerous awards and honors during his career viz. the Vikram Sarabhai Research Award in 1987 and the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Engineering Sciences in 1988. He is a Fellow, Indian National Sciences Academy of Engineering; Fellow, Indian National Science Academy, and Fellow, Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore.
