Amongst all the engineering disciplines, Electronics and Communications is the most demanding one. Vast career scope and promising opportunities are the obvious reasons why a significant percent of students pursue the course.
The engineering branch offers students the opportunity to get a diploma, a bachelor’s degree and even mastering the subject.
Here are some of the interesting facts on electronics engineering
Electronics and Communication is often confused with Electrical Engineering. While both engineering branches deal with core physics, electronic engineers work in designing and developing commercial products; mostly consumer electronics like kitchen appliances, computers, TVs and portable gadgets.
In the Indian education system, there are two ways how high school pass outs can get an Electronics and Communication degree. Students can either join a 3-year course in a polytechnic (diploma) Institute and get a lateral entry to B. Tech in 2nd year or take direct admission in engineering institutes that offer a full-time 4 years course. Either way, Electronics Engineering school graduates are eligible for pursuing their career in private or government companies.
In order to get admissions in engineering institutes, high school pass outs in India have to pass competitive entrance examinations.
For 3 years diploma full-time course, students have to appear for the JEXPO (Joint Entrance Examination Polytechnic). Similarly, high school pass outs have to pass the AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination). Diploma pass outs are required to appear for WBJEE JELET (Joint Entrance Examination for Lateral Entry).
Given the population of India and the number of high school pass outs each year, there is a huge competition among students to get admissions in engineering institutes like IST (Institute of Science and Technology).
Over the 3 years period of Electronics and Communication course, the engineering institute faculty trains students with broad systems including Micro Controller, Medical Electronics & Micro Processor, Medical Electronics, Fiber Optics Photonics, Digital Signal Processing(DSP engineering), Networking/Communication Engineering, SoC and microelectronics.
Pursuing studies in engineering colleges is fun; freshmen are welcomed by the sophomores and seniors. Throughout the full time course, electronic engineering school students get to expand their practical knowledge in workshops and seminar sessions provided by the reputed engineering institutes like Institute of Science and Technology.
