FAQs About and Course Career

Why should one opt for Electronics & Communication Engineering?

ECE-Electronics & Communication Engineering is a course of applying scientific principles to the design and development, fabrication, repair & maintenance of Electrical/Electronic Machines, Instruments and Communication systems.   It is a core subject which has enormous job opportunities in either hardware or software field. It covers a wide range of day today applications like Television, Radio, Computers, and Mobile phones etc. They help us to see, hear and communicate over vast distances and do things faster. No one could imagine that telephone, invented by Alexander Graham Bell, the radio, developed by Marconi, two distinct technologies come together would create a wonderful product that is Cell Phone (smart phones) which is now part of everybody’s life. Knowledge of Electronics is required in all domains of engineering like Chemical, Aeronautical, Electrical, Mechanical, Computer, Civil, Automobile sectors etc.

What are the career opportunities available to Electronics and Communication Engineers?

  • ECE students can develop an exciting career in industries as they are employed in variety of sectors such as Software Engineering/IT, Consumer Electronics manufacturing organization, Health care equipment manufacturing, Mobile communication (2G,3G,4G), Internet technologies, Telecommunication, , Power sector, Hardware Manufacturing, Home Appliance and VLSI design, Television Industry and Research & Development.
  • Graduates in Electronics Engineering also have lots of opportunities in Government and private companies in the areas of design, manufacture, installation, operation, and maintenance of electronics equipment and systems. Electronics & Communication Engineering offers career scope in DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization), ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), Public and Private Sectors, Defense Services and Engineering services. Indian Telephone Industries, Civil Aviation, Development Centers in various States.
  • Some of the job titles include, Service Engineer, Software Analyst, Technical Director, Field Test Engineer, Senior Sales Manager, Network Planning Engineer, Customer Support Engineer, Electronics and Communications Consultant, Research & Development Software Engineer.
  • Electronics and Communication Engineers get equal opportunity to explore and build a career in IT sectors.

What is the scope of an Electronic and Communication engineer in the current trend of “Make in India” concept.

  • ‘Make in India’ concept is a push to manufacturing sector and will open plethora of  jobs for Electronics Engineer.
  • Set up of 8 electronics manufacturing hubs and 7 electronics manufacturing clusters across the country to reduce imports.
  • PMs ‘Digital India’ vision: 2,50,000 villages to be integrated with   National Optical Fibre Network.
  • National Policy on Electronics: To make India a globally competitive destination for Electronics System Design and Manufacturing by 2020.

What are the salary prospects?

The job market for electronics and communication engineering is on demand and industries are looking for qualified engineers who can assist them on latest technologies. With recent technological advancements, the scope for the electronics engineers is on the rise.
However, according to payscale.com the average annual salary of these professional includes Rs. 312,408 per year. Electronics students with skills in robotics, automation technologies, renewable energies, Internet of Things (IoT), mechatronics engineering concepts add more value to their average pay scale.
