“Always have a will to conquer all your fears”
This man is a garden of patience. He appears as someone who will remain unagitated in the midst of even the greatest turbulences. The calmness and tranquility of his character is perhaps the most striking thing about this man. I’m talking about the H.O.D. of Electronics and Telecommunications Department, Dr. Debasis Mishra. We were lucky enough to catch him amdist his busy schedule and had a little interaction with him:
Team VISSION : Why did you chose Electronics and communications engineering as your career?
Today is the age of communications and networking. Telecommunications engineers build the various technologies that allow people to communicate over distances. This stream of engineering is quite a challenging field and hence I joined it as I love entertaining challenges.

I believe that sincerity towards work and ability to work with others has worked great dividends for me.
Team VISSION : After becoming the H.O.D. of the E.T.C. Department, what changes have you brought to your department?
New PG courses RF & mmW engineering has been introduced. New technology lab for VLSSI has been set up. The deptt. has been working smoothly and all the faculties are very supportive and hardworking.
Team VISSION : How was your childhood like?
It was smooth, without any glitches.
Team VISSION : How is the education system in which you studied in and the education system of today different?
Earlier it was theoretical. But now education system is more practical oriented which is more effective and good; given the present scenario.
