Electrical Engineering: Scope and Career Prospects

Electrical Engineering as a subject:

Electrical engineering  is one of the core fields of engineering, so it is always evergreen in terms of Scope and Job Prospects. Electrical Engineering is the heart of whole engineering discipline and therefore it scope will never fade even many years from now. Nowadays, we see  Electronics playing an important role in the implementation and control of Electrical Machines. Keeping this fact file in mind the course have transformed from core electrical Engineering into a Fusion of Electronics and Electrical and has been renamed as Electronics and Electrical engineering or simply EEE.

What will you learn:

Electricity has become the basic need for survival, globally. From household to industrial plants, communication and satellite navigation system, electronic equipment, computers etc., all require electricity.

Electrical engineering thus deals with study and application of electrical systems for use in these different environments. It equips you with the knowledge of transmission and generation of electrical power, electrical circuit design, electronics, instrumentation, control system, understanding electrical and electronic networks etc.

The course also covers the study of electronic devices and circuits involved in measurement, instrumentation, control and protection of electrical equipments and conversion systems. Concept of computer and recent applications of computer based systems in design, analysis and efficient operation of power system, maintaining quality and security, also included in the course.

Course Content:

In Electrical Engineering you will get the knowledge of different subjects such as:

Mathematics, Physics 



Electrical machines and design

Digital Electronics

Electrical Engg. Materials

Linear Control Systems


Electrical network and communication systems

and many more…

Who Should Join

Students having strong logical and analytical skills along with the capability to capture new things and attention to detail always do well in this field. A Successful  Electrical Engineer must mould his methodologies as well as his technologies according to the changing technological scenario of the current Market.

Career Scope an Placement Prospects:

Electrical Engineers are needed in all manufacturing units, All major companies of public and private sector such as Electricity Boards, Large Scale Industries, Manufacturing Plants, Power Corporations, Hydro-Electricity sector are continuously in need of Electrical Engineers for their projects. Electrical Engineers also find job prospects in Design Industries, Production plants, Natural gas plants, Petroleum as well as in steel and chemical plants. Many premier Educational and Research Institutions regularly intake electrical engineers as graduate Engineer trainees and Management Trainees to work on research projects.

Electrical Engineers can also get a job in Major players in Public Sector such as Indian Railways, Armed forces(Technical Branch) and also in Thermal and Nuclear power Corporation Limited.

Placement and Pay scale of Electrical Engineers: Electrical Engineers usually get handsome salaries after some experience in related fields. Starters can get anywhere between Rs. 15,000/- to Rs.30,000/- per month.

  10. Engineering on a whole is itself a best choice to choose as a career electrical engineering alone a career is really lucrative!! All the Engineering jobs are in the blooming zone as nowadays.Electrical Engineers have the responsibility of designing, developing and maintaining the electricity based or controlled systems /devices which should fit within the specified criteria of the required given specifications while maintaining the cost
    efficiency in such a way that it is affordable for all!
    There is a myth about the deficiency of <a href="http://www.ragns.com/mechanial-engineering-jobs-in-delhi">electrical engineers jobs</a>! But the real scenario is that, people are not aware much about the right platforms to find the suitable jobs according to their profile!!
    Otherwise there is lot of opportunities in Pune, Delhi,Chennai,Bangalore, Hyderabad and all the other cities.
    There is no specific way to find the job, in fact there are various way like trying through newspaper advertisements,radio/television ads,keep in update with the company, but most in demand these days are the online job portals and consulatant comapnies giving the gurantee of getting jobs.

Over there,you just have to upload your resume in order to-get your dream job after engineering! you can subscribe for the job alerts which will help you get the job as soon as the companies are in need of!! There are various jobs available in the electrical engineering field!! Before you apply for the one, try going through the reading material so that it becomes easy for you to crack the interview!!
    Engineers are undoubtedly one of the best paid professionals across the globe. In the past one decade, not only the number of engineering graduates has increased phenomenally, but also the advent of fields and sectors to work in, thanks to the tech boom!
