After passing Higher Secondary Examination choosing a suitable career option takes a lot of time. One may have cracked the necessary competitive exam by accessing some engineering books online to get into their dream engineering college, but then starts the dilemma of selecting the stream. In recent years, many students enrolled in Computer Science Engineering due to the booming market in IT sectors. So the competition to crack a job after graduation was a tough one. In midst of this, Electrical and Electronics Engineers got a chance to upgrade their careers. How? Let’s discuss it below.
Importance of Electricity
Standing in this century, electricity no longer belongs to the category of wants. It has become a necessary resource. One cannot imagine their life without it, so gradually here comes the major scope for Electrical Engineers. Farmers today depend on electricity to irrigate and harvest crops. The complete dependency on electricity in factories producing goods or in banks and amusement places makes it an important amenity. So every sector, be it primary, secondary, or tertiary, dependency on electricity is common. With electricity, the evolution of electronic equipment evolved. Starting from the basic light and fan to television, refrigerators, and other telecommunication devices. Hence the scope for Electronics Engineer increased.
The course of Electrical or Electronic Engineering is an interesting one. If someone has a knack for electrical gadgets and the basic physics regarding electricity excites them, then this stream will suit them perfectly. In Electrical Engineering (EE) one learns about the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity. On the other hand, in Electronics Engineering or Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE), one learns about electronic devices, various circuits, and systems. One can learn both in the Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) course. Some of the best electrical engineering books, like Electrical Engineering 101 and Basic Electrical Engineering by V.K. and Rohit Mehta are very good to build up concepts.
More Job Opportunities
This stream of engineering has created diversified job opportunities for youth. State or private electrical suppliers in India hire Electrical Engineers as per their increasing demand. In the System and Control Department, maximum recruitment takes place. Energy Systems in power plants also hire based on the credibility of the student. Telecommunication Companies like Airtel, Reliance Jio, or BSNL hire Electronic Engineers from time to time. With massive technological advancement, students now can work as Micro-Electronics, Instrumentation, or Computer Engineer.
With recent technological advancements, companies are focussing more on their Research and Development (R&D) to bring out new gadgets, circuits, or systems. If someone is interested to opt for research in this field can easily go for it. One can do a Ph.D. after M. Tech and then work in the industry. Companies are ready to buy ideas and inventions if finds useful to their need.
These are few reasons that make Electrical and Electronics Engineering a good career option. One can learn, experience, and evolve from this stream. Studying has become easy as one can buy engineering books online and do their reading. The job is not at all monotonous but a challenging one. So if one loves the subject and has the knack, then this stream of engineering can give fruitful results.
