Electronics and Communication Engineering is one of the old and the best course in the field of engineering. This article provides Career Guidance, Choices and Job Opportunities in the field of Electronics and Communication for ECE students to make a successful career.
Electronics and Communication cover vast areas in the field of engineering. It is not possible for a person to become an expert in all the fields. So, one should choose one or two areas of interest from the list of sub fields given below, which is close to your heart. Also, to keep you updated about latest technologies and inventions in this domain, go through IEEE articles and Journals.
Recent recession had a big impact on the type of careers we choose. Thus, it is advised to opt for a career that can cope up with such market conditions, rather than being forced for a career change at a later stage. That doesn’t mean that, we need to choose a career which we are not passionate about. So when you make a career choice, it should be as per your interest and its reliability in the market. In the following sections, we will look into various Career Opportunities and Choices for Electronics and Communication Engineers.
Where to start?
Engineering students get hired by companies during campus recruitment or during walk-ins conducted directly by companies or by consulting firms. Since the number of openings for a fresher in the field of Electronics and Communication is far less as compared to the experienced ones, it is very important for a budding engineer to get placed during the campus recruitment itself so as to cross the first hurdle in the career path.
