Electronics and communication has a lot of scope in this modern era of wide application of electronics. Electronic engineers are the backbone of all components developed like integrated chips, transistors, fiber optics etc. Electronics engineers have achieved ample development in areas such as telecommunication, health care, automation, signal processing, satellite technology, microelectronics, nanotechnology etc. A four year course equips students with design, analysis and manufacturing of electronic devices. Electronic engineers have job opportunities in telecommunication, Software Engineering, Power sector, Hardware Manufacturing, Home Appliance, VLSI design, Television Industry, Process Industries, medical instrumentation etc. They have lucrative jobs in embedded systems, Integrated Circuit manufacturing, Signal Processing, Circuit designing etc. Electronic engineers can pursue careers in areas like defense, Space and other research organizations for designing and development of complex devices and systems for signal processing and telecommunication. An electronic engineer can find jobs in Consumer electronics manufacturing organization, IT industries, Mobile communication, Internet technologies, Power Electronics, and other industries like steel, petroleum and chemical industry, directing control and testing production process etc. Those who wish to go for higher studies can opt M.Tech and Ph.D after qualifying GATE exam.
