Aug 26, 2009 Scope and 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.
In Electrical Engineering you will get the knowledge of different subjects such as:
Electrical machines and design
Electrical Engg. Materials
Linear Control Systems
Electrical network and communication systems
Power and control systems
Computer Aided Power System Analysis
Non-linear and Digital Control Systems
Extra High Voltage Engg.
Electrical Machine Design
Electric Drives & Utilization
E.M. Field Theory
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.
