The graduate in Electronics and Communication Engineering has a plenty of opportunities in public as well as private industry. In private industry, ECE engineer can get a job in core companies like Texas Instrument, SCL (Semiconductor Limited), ST Microelectronics, Nokia, Siemens, Airtel, Reliance Communications, TATA, Samsung and LG Electronics.

ECE engineer is also needed in software designing companies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro and others. Here ECE engineers work at par with Computer Science Engineers. Curriculum of B.Tech. ECE is designed in such a way that student is well aware of software designing concepts.

Apart from private sector companies ECE engineer is needed by public sector companies like BHEL, BELL Laboratories and IOCL, and Government based research organizations like ISRO and DRDO. ECE Engineers also find the requirements in aviation industry.

Graduate in ECE can also go for higher studies in India and Abroad. GATE is the exam that has to be cleared for doing M.Tech. in India and GRE/ TOEFL/ IELTS exams are needed for higher studies from abroad.

There is no other branch other than ECE that offers a plenty of research opportunities. Companies are always innovating new electronic products and demand for ECE engineers always remains steady.


April 2016 saw the inauguration of the Institution of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineers (IETE) with 143 students being inducted into the chapter of IETE in GEHU, Dehradun.
