Why Electronics and Communication Engineering?

Ever thought which branch is suitable for you and why? Find an answer here...

Electronics and Communication engineering is a discipline which uses the scientific knowledge of the behavior and effects of electrons to develop components, devices, systems, or equipment that uses electricity as part of its driving force. This engineering field encompasses many subfields like signal processing, semiconductor chip design, telecommunication, data communication networks, satellite and radar link setup, embedded systems, robotics and many more.

Amity University has an MOU with ESSCI (Electronics Sector Skills Council of India). ESSCI envisions to enable a world class electronics manufacturing industry with an ecosystem for skill development and enhance employability of large number of Indian human resource. Read More...

The applications of Electronics & Communication engineering is an endless list with a lot of scope in each and every subfield. It is a versatile branch that opens path for core electronics & communication jobs. Besides the numerous jobs in core field, the IT sector also welcomes an ECE engineer with open arms. Advanced countries in the world have gone to such depths of Electronics today that an electronics engineer is indispensable at every front. Opportunity in this highly sophisticated and advanced branch of engineering is just immense.

ECE is the All- Rounder Branch of Engineering:

  • Telecom sector is fastest growing sector worldwide and there is a shortage of telecom Engineers.
  • As compared to other branches,there are more interdisciplinary specializations in higher studies for ECE students like Embedded Systems, VLSI, Wireless communication, Signal Processing. Therefore, ECE students have a wider choice.
  • Advantage comes in Job and placement too. ECE students usually get jobs in companies/organizations having operations in software (IT industries), hardware i.e. Electronics (Electronics industries), Communications (Telecom Industries) as well as Electrical; this is the biggest benefit which is not available to students of other streams.
  • Electronics and Communication Engineering jobs represent over 50% of all available jobs in engineering!
  • If IT job is your destination, then there is no need to master programming languages. With a basic knowledge and logic of programming, an ECE engineer can do wonders with training provided by these companies.

In INDIA there are some Telecommunications companies like ZTE, Google,Ericson, Samsung, Airtel, Cadence etc. which hire a large no. of students from ECE stream every year.

ECE engineers can apply for a number of Government organizations like ISRO, DRDO, BEL, BHEL, GAIL, SAIL, HAL, HPCL, NTPC, ONGC, IOCL, RRB, ECIL, APGENCO, APTRANSCO.

An ECE student can enter in to the job market of Computer engineering, Electrical Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, control engineering, robotics, mechanical engineering, VHDL, VLSI. But any branch of other engineering student cannot enter in to the Electronics and Communication Engineering job market. Yes, that is true!
