The scope of Electronics Engineers ..?
The branch of Electronics and Communication Engineering is concerned with the design, development, manufacture and application of electronic devices, circuits and systems. The ECE curriculum lays greater emphasis on deep understanding of fundamental principles and state of the art knowledge regarding Electronic Devices and Circuits, Computer Architecture and Microprocessors, VLSI and Embedded systems, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Analog and Digital Communication, Digital Signal Processing, Microwave, Wireless and Fiber Communications. In effect, the ECE curriculum provides a wide perspective of the field of Electronics and Communication, and allows the student to decide his/her future directions in various domains. The ECE graduated students are qualified for employment in many extensive areas and can work as Circuit Designer, Circuit testing Engineer, Network Engineer, Communication Engineer, Signal Analyst, Signal Tester, MEMS Designer, Automation Engineer, Automotive Engineer, Robotics Engineer, Chip Designer, Software and Hardware Engineer. The ECE graduated students are also absorbed in many entertainment transmission industry, research establishments and defense. The students from the ECE branch can also decide to pursue post-graduate studies in many reputed Indian Universities or abroad, showing their ability to continue research in diverse areas. Lastly, in the current age of multi-discipline, the ECE graduated students can also diverge into related fields such as computer engineering, thereby venturing into other streams of engineering. A wide range of career opportunities available for Electronics Engineer are:
➽ Electronics Engineer - Marine/Hydraulic/Maintenance / Power Engineer Engineer - Mechanical Design/ Robotic/ Nuclear Operations/ Power Generation/ Tool Engineer/ Pattern/ Piping/ Thermal design/ Lubrication/ Automotive
