Electronics & Communication Engineering(ECE)
Electronics & Communication Engineering finds utilization in all fields of communication as well as various processes and applications. Electronics & Communication engineers are required in the electronics and telecom sectors and process industries like chemical plants, petrochemicals, oil refineries, paint, textile, paper and cement industries, steel plants, power plants, mines, fertilizer plants etc.
Electronics and communications engineering (ECE) deals with the design and development of electronic circuits, equipment and machines. Electronic equipment and communication equipment has interconnected everyone in so many ways. Electronics engineering has many sub-fields, including signal processing, telecommunications engineering, control engineering, instrumentation engineering, computer engineering and Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) design engineering.
What does an Electronics & Communication Engineer do?
All of the applications which make our life easier and enjoyable such as Television, Radio, Computers, Mobiles etc. are designed and developed by Electronics and Communication Engineers,
- Design and maintain satellites, which bring TV, telephone and Internet service into remote and rural regions.
- ECE Engineers also creates advanced communication facilities like video
- Develops programs for various control and communication systems.
- Embedded-systems or VLSI design.
CAREER PATHS: Options and Opportunities
Electronics and Communication Engineering opens up great career prospects for the students. The students after completion of the degree can avail of job opportunities in the manufacturing industries and service organizations such as broadcasting, consulting, data communication, entertainment, research and development; and system support.
The opportunities are galore for electronics and communication engineers as they are employed in variety of sectors such as Indian Telephone Industries, Civil Aviation, Defense, NPL, A.I.R, Posts and Telegraph Department, Railways, Students can avail jobs in PSUs (HAL, NALCO,SAIL,NTPC, BEL, ONGC, Reliance, HPCL, IOCL, BPCL, etc.) , Core companies(Maruti, Tata Motors, Hindustan Motors etc.), Govt.
