Today’s world is very much for and of the Electronics & Communication Engineers. Advanced countries in the world have gone to such depths of Electronics today that an Electronics Engineer is indispensable in every front. Opportunity in this highly sophisticated and advanced branch of engineering is just immense.

Electronics is now a part of our every day life, from your pocket FM radio to televisions, computers, mobile phones and even the high-end satellites that process and sends images.

Career prospects

Today, technology is growing at a rapid pace. In the coming future there is bound to be huge demand for competent engineers in electronic industry to cope this demand in technology. These engineers would be involved in creating and sustaining cutting edge technology to stay ahead in competition.

An electronic engineer can find job in Consumer electronics manufacturing organisation, Telecommunication industry, IT industries, Health care equipment manufacturing industry, Mobile communication, Internet technologies, Power Electronics, and Other industries like steel, petroleum and chemical industry, directing control and testing production process.

Electrical technicians and technologists can specialize in technical sales, product representation, systems management, the design and manufacture of electronic devices and systems, or the installation, maintenance and repair of electronic systems and equipment.

They may also work with computers and electronic equipment in the medical, manufacturing, industrial control, telecommunications, aeronautical and military fields.

Working Conditions

Electronics and communication engineering graduates can work for electrical utilities, communications companies, manufacturers, the military, government, or in the processing and transportation industries. They are also extensively involved in the manufacturing of electronic gadgets and devices. The work of an electronic engineer is varied and depends upon the industry they are working in.

Job Outlook

There are plenty of jobs for skilled electrical and electronics technicians with postsecondary qualifications. But the job is becoming more competitive and there are not so many jobs for people with lesser skills. Technology is improving productivity for many of these jobs and thus holding down job growth.

An electronics engineer can get a job in Central Government, State Governments and their sponsored corporations in public enterprises and the private organizations like All India Radio, Indian Telephone Industries, MTNL, National Physical Laboratories, AIR, Civil Aviation Department; Post and Telegraph Department; Co-ordination Department, National Physical Laboratory, Bharat Electronics Limited, Development Centers in various States etc.  dealing in manufacture, sales and services of electronics consumer goods and appliances.

Electronics engineers are also absorbed into the entertainment transmission industry, research establishments, and defense. They can also take up teaching and research in one of the many engineering colleges in India or abroad.

    see every branch is best in own way.....but the demanding branch is mechanical or chemical......now-a-days...
    somehow electronics branch is also a best branch in engeering line.....because through electronics branch you can go in two fields after b.tech...i.e. software line or electronics line......so choose ur branch in three of them.........
    and i m nt saying that rest of branches are not good......they r also good......bt less demanding as compare to above three........

  15. deepak kumar

    if u want to join best colg then drop 1 year n prepare ur self wid conceptual study n perform d best result in iit or aieee. after that u will get best colg where u dont have to worry abt ur placement. ok , so u can drop 1 year. wish u all d best . or if u got this rank in aieee what u written in ur question then u can get nit. ec is best n demanding branch.

    Hello, I am a 2nd year student in electronics and communication eng.I will get a job in some IT company but can't decide what do do after my graduation , should I go for CAT or opt for GATE? I am interested in robotics but people say that there is no scope for it in India,so should I try for GRE? Please give the pros and cons of the option too.
