Electrical Engineering is a core evergreen branch that mainly deals with the field associated with the study and application of electricity. It comprises of the study about generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power, electrical circuit design, electronics, instrumentation and control systems, electronic devices and circuits etc. If you have got logical and analytical skills and ability to keep learning and adaptability to changing technology, Electrical and Electronics Engineering is the best branch for you.
Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipments. Electrical engineers also design the electrical systems of automobiles and aircraft .The major difference between electrical engineering and electronics engineering is that, electrical engineers focus on the generation and supply of power, whereas electronics engineers work on applications of electricity to control systems or signal processing. Electronics plays an important role in the implementation and control of Electrical equipments. Thus the course has transformed from core electrical Engineering into a fusion of Electronics and Electrical and has been renamed as Electrical and Electronics engineering or EEE.
You can do M.Tech in Electrical Engineering course with specialisations such as Power Electronics and Drives, Power Systems, Electrical Machines, Control and Instrumentation, Applied Electronics, Embedded Systems, VLSI Design, Nanotechnology, Nano-medical Sciences, Remote Sensing and Geo-Informatics Systems, Clinical Engineering, and so on. Those who have interest in research activities can do Ph.D as well.
A EEE graduate has plenty of job opportunities in both Electrical & Electronics sectors. Electrical Engineers are needed in all manufacturing units. All major companies of public and private sector such as Electricity Boards, Large Scale Industries, Manufacturing Plants, Power Corporations, Hydro-Electricity sector recruit Electrical Engineers for their projects. Electrical Engineers have lucrative job options in Design Industries, Production plants, Natural gas plants, Petroleum as well as in steel and chemical plants. Educational and Research Institutions also recruit electrical engineers as graduate Engineer trainees for their research projects. Electrical Engineers can also get a job in Government & Public Sector companies like Indian Railways, Armed forces, Thermal and Nuclear power Corporation Limited, BEL, BHEL, HPCL, ONGC etc after clearing their tests. Some of the major core companies in private sector are ABB, General Electricals, Siemens, Bosch, Tata Elxsi, L& T, MRF, Mahindra & Mahindra etc. A EEE graduate has ample opportunities in Networking & IT sectors also if interested. Another important fact to be noted is that jobs in EEE sector generally offer an attractive income package. Teaching after M.Tech is also a good career option. Those who are inclined towards Research & Development activities have many opportunities in the R &D departments of Ministry of Science & Technology like ISRO, DRDL, DRDO etc.
