HE stood eleventh in West Bengal in his SSC and ranked sixteenth in West Bengal Joint Engineering Entrance (WBJEE). Also a recipient of Jagdish Bose National Science Talent Search (JDNSTS) scholarship in his first year of engineering at Jadavpur University (JDU), Abhishek Sinha is not new to academic success.
- Network Analysis: Be conversant with mathematical techniques like Laplace and Fourier Transforms and various network theorems, as they often simplify a given problem. Also, you should possess a general understanding about network graphs like cut-sets, tie-sets, adjacency matrices and related concepts.
- Communication theory: It requires a working knowledge of information theory and Shannon’s result for an AWGN channel. Stress on various analog and digital modulation techniques and their SNR to Bandwidth trade-off as accomplished in practice.
- Electromagnetism: A clear understanding of Maxwell’s equations and their significance is essential. Master vector calculus should as early as possible. Also, study the science of electromagnetism from standard Physics textbooks like “Classical Electrodynamics” by J.D. Jackson.
- Microelectronics: Focus on understanding the working of devices (books like that of S.M. Sze come very handy). You should clearly understand the concept of biasing of active devices and various biasing techniques. Study bipolar and CMOS technology thoroughly.
