Electronics and Communication Engineering
Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. In simple words, Science is the study of the physical world. Whereas Engineering is the application of science, which applies scientific knowledge to design processes, structures or equipment.
Engineering, science, and technology also influence (and are influenced by) society. Our human values, needs, or problems often determine what questions scientists investigate and what problems engineers tackle. Meanwhile the technologies that are the products of science and engineering influence society and change human culture (just think of the impacts of cars and cell phones!).
Electronics and Communication engineering is one of the most popular engineering trade. Among the students, this particular discipline is a popular choice , as ECE deals with the design and development of electronic circuits, equipment and machines. Electronic equipment and communication equipment has interconnected everyone in so many ways, such as through mobile phones, TVs, computers or iPads. Electronics is the technology associated with electronic circuits and systems
In the field of information Technology, electronics and communication engineering is also acting as a major driving force . No area is untouched by the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering like healthcare, instrumentation, automation, remote sensing, signal processing etc.
ECE can develop an exciting career in Government as well as in private sector like: Consumer electronics Manufacturing organization, Telecommunication & IT firms, Health care equipment manufacturing, Mobile communication ,Internet technologies, Power Electronics, VLSI and other industries like steel, petroleum and chemical etc. The areas they cover are design, manufacture, installation, operation, services and maintenance of electronics equipment & systems.
Top recruiters for this field (in Govt. & Pvt. sector) are DMRC, Siemens, Motorola, Intel, Texas Instruments, BEL, ISRO,DRDO, Accenture, Wipro, HCL Technologies, NVidia, Samsung, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, TCS, Conexant, MTNL, AIR, BSNL, Indian Air force, Indian Navy, Railways, Bharat Electronics Ltd & Flextronics & Philips Electronics, etc.
ECE plays an important role in field of robotics, automation technologies, renewable energies, Internet of Things (IoT), mechatronics engineering concepts.
SCOPE OF ECE IN INDIA BY 2020:
There is an ample growth in the field of Electronics & Communication Engineering because of the initiatives taken by the government. Now there are schemes like Startup India to earmark the funding to the young professionals looking for entrepreneurship in digital world. Therefore, by 2020 it will grow as one of the booming sectors in India.
Few years back, we were quite satisfied with the 1 GB per month data at a 2G speed in our phones. But now the scenario has completely changed. Even the 2 GB data per day at a 4G speed is exhausted due to our long browsing sessions over phones. 2020 is projected as a revolutions year in terms of ECE as the 6G generation is expected to be launched.
On the other hand, advancing artificial intelligence has been taking the communication to the next level where you can interact with the device and they respond your way. Robotics engineering is progressing with the introduction of Butler bots which help in reducing the human work remarkably.
The best thing with ECE is that there is no threat to the working engineers in this field, unlike CSE where the number of job are expected to be reduced due to emerging technologies like AI- Machine Learning, IoT, Robotics, etc. By 2020 and afterward, ECE will grow in leaps and bounds- there is no denying to this fact.
