There are a number of students who are allured by this rewarding career in the Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering field. With Maths and Physics being the required subjects in Class XII, admission in electronics and telecommunication engineering is done on the basis of admission test, GATE. After completion in the same, one is offered openings in the public sector, defense, manufacturing industries, sales and marketing. Those willing to choose research and development or teaching or consultancy jobs need to pursue postgraduate qualifications. Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering (GATE) is the qualifying test that has to be cleared by those looking for placement in postgraduate degree programs. A degree in ME / MTech is two year courses and further specializations are offered through post graduate diplomas or research fellowships.
After pursuing 10 + 2 students must opt for acquiring technician's qualifications through the 3 year diploma courses that are usually offered by the Technology Training Institutions. Then there is an option for studying for membership examinations of professional organizations or those diploma holders who can carry out part time degree course for enhancing their qualification. There are numerous universities that are offering B.Sc Electronics Course which can be followed by an MSc in the subject. Furthermore, there are specialized B.Tech courses that are offered in varied fields such as Electronics & Computer Sc., Electronics & Communication, Electronics & Control, Electronics & Telecommunication, Electronics & Information Electronics & Power, Electronics & Instrumentation, Electronics & Telematics, Electronics & Power, Electronics & Electrical Communication and many more.
Career Avenues for Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering Students- Organization dealing with consumers, aircraft and broadcast electronics, hospital and medical equipment, satellite, computers, marine navigation, audiovisual test and farm machinery opportunities for electronic / telecommunications engineers. The union or amalgamation of technology for telephones, computers, and cable, video and broadcast television requires competent people skilled in various other disciplinals. Engineers from computers, electronics telecommunications / communication have opportunities in a wide variety of companies.
Electronic and Telecommunication engineers are usually required in industries where the working environment varied significantly. Research based professions are carried out in laboratories and as far as fabrication is concerned, these are carried out in showroom. Engineers in Defense, Hospitals, and aeronautics and weather labs are subject to severe working conditions. However, telecommunication engineers are highly in demand in the manufacturing industries and research and services sector. On the other hand, job involves desk work that expands over a lot of technical calculations, design and testing. Additionally, the field work requires hell lot of traveling and can be at times, physically demanding.
