Electronics and Communication Engineering branch deals with analog transmission, digital transmission, reception of video, voice and data, basic electronics, solid state devices, microprocessors, digital and analog communication, analog integrated circuits, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antennae and wave progression. It also deals with the manufacturing of electronic devices, circuits, and communications equipment like transmitter, receiver, integrated circuits, microwaves, and fiber among others. It aims to deepen the knowledge and skills of the students on the basic concepts and theories that will equip them in their professional work involving analysis, systems implementation, operation, production, and maintenance of the various applications in the field of Electronics and Communications Engineering.
An electronics engineer can get a job in Central Government, State Governments and their sponsored corporations and private industries dealing in manufacture, sales and services of electronics consumer goods and appliances. Electronics engineers are also absorbed into the broadcast industry, research establishments, and defense. They can also take up teaching and research in one of the many engineering colleges in India or abroad. A new and niche area emerging for all electronic engineers is biomedical electronics which has a vast scope in India with a medical tourism growth of 30%. During the B.Tech programme, these engineers develop analytical skills and reasoning power along with computer knowledge and programming skills. This facilitates them to acquire employment as software professionals as well. With some extra efforts, an electronic and communication engineering graduate can easily find place in software development, which is one of the potential job market at present.
