The major driving force for the present day Information Technology revolution is the development in Electronics & Communication Engineering. The advancements in microelectronics, satellite and optical fibre technology, analog and digitalÂ communication techniques have resulted in developing complex electronics devices, circuits and equipments capable of implementing fast and efficient telecommunication systems. Real time transfer of audio and video signals is now possible with recent trends in broad band technologies. Penetration of innovations in electronics has now revolutionalised other areas like health care, instrumentation, automation, remote sensing, signal processing etc.Â Graduates in Electronics Engineering have opportunities in Government and private companies for installation, operation and maintenance of electronics equipments and systems. Defense, space and other large research organisations employ electronics engineers in design and development of complex devices and systems for signal processing and telecommunication.
Industries involved in design and fabrication of devices, integrated circuits, embedded systems, electronic equipments etcÂ also provide large scale placements for engineers with this specialization. Installation and maintenance of electronic equipments used for health care in hospitals, equipments & systems for instrumentation and control in process industries automation systems of assembly line in production industries, etc are also handled by electronics engineers.
