“Electronics and Communication Engineering” is one of the fastest growing field of engineering courses. it deals with the electronic devices, circuits, communication equipments like transmitter, receiver, integrated circuits (IC) and also deals with basic electronics, analog and digital transmission & reception of data, voice and video (Example AM, FM, DTH), microprocessors, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antennae and wave progression. It aims to deepen the knowledge and skills of the students on the basic concepts and theories that will equip them in their professional work involving analysis, systems implementation, operation, production, and maintenance of the various applications in the field of Electronics and Communications Engineering.. It involves the transmission of information across the channel. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) compiles in Communication Engineering and core Electronics Engineering. The course concept is to focus mainly on the communication part with the knowledge of the electronics field.

Electronic communication technologies include programming communication devices, maintaining broadcast equipment and assisting electrical engineers. A certificate, associate's degree, or bachelor's degree in electronics technology is the pathway to a career in this field.

Scope of electronics & communication

Having a further look at the career prospects, there is bound to be huge demand for competent engineers in electronic industry to cope this demand in technology. The engineers would be involved in sustaining cutting edge technology to stay ahead in competition.

This field has an opportunity in two types of companies, Telecom Industries and Software Industries. An electronics and communication engineer can work in aviation and avionics, consumer electronics, electricity plant, manufacturing, transportation, communication & telecommunication, computer application, radio & television, diagnostic equipment manufacturing and offshore companies. There is an opportunity to get a central government job, state government job and in public & private sectors
