Electronics Engineers design, fabricate, produce, tests and supervise the manufacture of complex products and systems that use electricity as part of their source of power. Electronics are a part of our everyday life, and the ECE field shows no– signs of slowing down in the near future. This is a blessing for aspiring ECE graduates, as it opens up endless opportunities for them in top-notch manufacturing and IT industries.
Electronics engineering is one type of engineering which is growing rapidly and has enormous career options. It is a form of engineering associated with electronic circuits, devices and the equipment and systems that use them.
The field of electronic engineering is so vast that includes a variety more specific electronic engineering fields that include digital electronics, analogue electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics.
Engineering in electronics deals with the study and application of electronics, electricity and electromagnetism.
Electrical engineers perform detailed calculations to develop manufacturing, construction, and installation standards and specifications. They design new ways to use electrical power to develop or improve products, analyze customer needs and determine the requirements, capacity, and cost for developing an electrical system plan and develop maintenance and testing procedures for electronic components and equipment.
There are various career paths for bachelors in electronics engineering that includes radio frequency design and mobile communications, electronic control systems, telecommunications, electronic product design, control and power electronics, consumer electronics, signal processing, military and aeronautical electronics.
10+2 Science with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is mandatory to qualify for admission to undergraduate programs in Electronics Engineering.
Develop subject-specific skills in areas such as designing and testing circuit building blocks, computer programming and computer-aided design. You also develop other transferable skills including:
- The ability to use specialist knowledge creatively and inovatively to solve problems
- Pragmatism and practicality to turn a concept into reality
- Effective communication (spoken and written)
- Good Team working
- Project and time management
- A professional approach and ability to work to an ethical code of conduct.
These skills help electrical and electronic engineers to be in demand in other sectors, such as finance and management.
