Career Scope

Future Scope of Electronics & Communication Engineering – Studying electronics and communication engineering is the dream of every second aspirant due to a number of reasons – growth, job opportunities, salary range and continuous industry growth. An electronics engineer should have innovative & independent thoughts, a necessity to create things, deep imagination and vision, aptitude and an enthusiasm to learn, along with logical reasoning. An engineer must be capable of quickly grasping a problem and must then find out the fastest and most cost-effective way of solving it. Additionally, an electronics engineer must have good communication skills, including the ability to express himself using figures and words and have the potential to work independently, as well as part of a team. One factor that all engineers have in common is the desire to help solve the world's problems and make it a better place to live in. They often have differing views and perspectives but they all steer towards a problem-solving direction. If you feel your personality matches the above mentioned traits, and if you are ready to take on a challenging and stimulating career, you should consider electronics engineering. 

The term “Electronics and Communication Engineering” denotes a wider engineering field that includes sub fields such as analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems, communication systems and power electronics. Electronics engineering deals with implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields. For example, a few of them are listed below.

  • Solid-State Physics
  • Radio Engineering
  • Telecommunications
  • Control Systems
  • Signal Processing
  • Systems Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Instrumentation Engineering
  • Electric Power Control
  • Robotics

One of the most important and influential organizations for electronics engineers is Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It is the world's largest association of technical professionals with more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries around the world. Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronics engineering, communication engineering, and computer engineering and allied disciplines. There are many state and central Electronics Corporations like KELTRON, UPTRON, WEBEL, HARTRON, ESPL, KEONICS, ELCOT, BEL, ECIL etc. which were established  to develop electronics industry in the states. The Govt of India has set up several autonomous organizations, as given below, to address the requirements of different sectors of Electronics and Communication:

 

Job Opportunities in Government/Public Sector Units*

Public sector undertakings (PSUs) in India, for long, have had troubles conducting their recruitment processes with more than 100,000 students taking the exams for less than 1000 jobs (a selection rate of less than 1%). After sensing the exponential rise in the number of engineering graduates in India who wish to get a PSU job, the PSUs have decided that a GATE score shall be the primary criteria for initial shortlisting.
