Careers in Electronics Engineering

Electronics is a branch of Physics which deals with the study involving emission, behaviour, and effects of electrons and with electronic devices. Electronics uses various devices such as semiconductors, resistors, inductors, capacitors, nano-structures, and vacuum tubes etc. All applications of electronics involve the transmission of either information or power.
Electronics Science and Electronics Engineering are different. The former only study the theoretical concept while the later apply it practically by designing and constructing electronic circuits etc. Electronics have wide application in our day to day life.

The basic eligibility criteria is 10+2 (with Physics, Chemistry and Maths). There are many BE/BTech program in electronics engineering of four years duration. The selection is generally made on the basis of entrance tests (e.g. IITJEE, AIEEE, BITSAT etc.) conducted at both national and state level.  

Career Prospects
Students after completing graduation or post-graduation  in Electronics Science can enter either into the electronic industries such as electronic design, control engineering, computer-hardware and computer network or into the business world where the knowledge of fundamental physics and electronics are needed. Some can also take the option to study further and carry out research in the field.
Successful graduates can join executive position in electronic chip making industry, computer hardware industry, and consumer electronics industry or become entrepreneurs.
One can also choose academic and research as a rewarding career. Various colleges/universities/ research labs in India and across the globe provide enormous opportunities.
