Why Should I Study Electronics and Communication Engineering?

The world has become smaller thanks to electronics and communication. Just a few decades ago, it would have seemed impossible for one to communicate with someone halfway across the world in real-time, that too at an affordable price, but here we are. Today, we can, not only talk but also video chat free of cost with someone halfway across the world. We have electronics and communication engineers to be thanked for this. Electronics and communication engineering (ECE) is more of a blanket term. It actually encompasses many specializations under it like consumer electronics, analog electronics, digital electronics and more. Electronic communication engineers can be defined as engineers who research, develop and make modern-day electronic devices and communication systems. Therefore, you can judge how important this profession is.

What will I Learn?

The most important benefit that the Electronics and Communication branch provides you is the freedom to drift between hardware field and software field. Furthermore this is also the reason that a lot of industries choose to prefer Electronics and Communications engineers over other engineers. During the course of four years of Electronics and Communication Engineering, students gain knowledge of both hardware and software aspects.

While they learn about electronic circuits, devices, and communication systems, they also learn about embedded systems, programming languages, and assembly languages. An Electronics and Communication Engineer, who has knowledge on the hardware field has a grip over some computer languages, will be more successful during his career than other students who are proficient only in the software field. Hence, Electronics and Communication Engineers can switch from hardware to software field, but it is not the other way around.

Ready to Join?

The magnificence of Electronics and Communication lies in its ubiquity! Electronic devices have become a major part of our lives.
