Electrical Engineers - Job Prospects,Top Colleges and Recruiters.

Electrical Engineering is one of the branches of engineering which deals with the latest technology, systems devices related to electricity, and electromagnetism. It has emerged as one of the newest and most important engineering branches. Looking at our surrounding environment, we can wonder how important electricity is in our everyday life. We can’t imagine our world without electricity supply, for which new ways to make and utilize electricity in the best possible manner is discovered rapidly. Electrical engineering study makes one familiar the electric wires, devices, power supply generation and how to work with these things maintaining the safety and security of everyone and the sustainability of the final product they create.


Areas of Specialization:

  • Nanotechnology     
  • Circuits Power and energy systems

  • Control systems
  • Microelectronics/Photonics
  • Electromagnetics
  • Signal processing

Courses and Eligibility:

B. TECH4 years should have passed their XII class or equivalent examination with PCM as compulsory subjects and a minimum aggregate of 50% marks, need to qualify the Engineering entrance test of national/state/university level.
JEE Main, JEE Advanced, WBJEE, OJEE, etc
M. TECH2 years

should have a B.E/B.Tech. degree with a minimum of 55% marks and also a qualifying score in the GATE exam.

Diploma3 yearsshould have passed the 10th examination from any University/Institution with at least 50% marks in aggregate.
Mark basis selection, private entrances, State level entrance DET (Diploma Entrance Test)

Top Recruiters:

All the multinational companies like TCS, TATA, Infosys come to the good preferred colleges to recruit students. They have different levels of exams to filter the knowledge of students. also there comes notification of government requirement like Junior Engineers in Railways, SSC etc. 

Candidates who desire to get admission to B.E. Electrical Engineering course they can do it with the help of entrance exams. These entrance exams are conducted at the state, national level, and University level. Electrical Engineering is the most preferred course in the field of engineering. Hence, every year, a big number of candidates choose to take admission in this program. Admissions into good colleges are usually done through entrance exam. After completion of the boards, applicants can go for JEE Main in order to take admission in the undergrad engineering program. And those who are aiming to get into IITs or NITs are required to qualify in JEE Advanced after getting successful marks in JEE Main.


Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and also application of electronics, electricity and electromagnetism. It now covers a range of minimal topics like electronics, power, signal processing, control systems, and telecommunications. Hence, candidates who have a sharp, practical and analytical mind and also attention to details are able to easily grasp and adapt to new and changing concepts are usually the most suitable because Electrical Engineering has a variety of subjects.

Skills Required:

You should be able to read and manipulate electrical instruments in an expert manner as this is the biggest requirement of your job. Testing the electrical currents and how different components react to one another is a critical part of both repairing old devices and creating new ones. Well, having a degree is not sufficient for an engineer. Theoretical knowledge can never feed your purpose. Practical knowledge is of utmost importance. You will be required to be updated with the latest information at all times. In many situations, you will find yourself seeking more knowledge to meet the growing demands of this career. Most importantly in Electrical engineering, having knowledge is not at all sufficient of electrical engineering is one thing, its application is another. The most important requirement will you will be to face.complex engineering problems at work. As a result, you will require to have complex problem-solving skills so that you can identify such problems and evaluate the associated information to develop and determine options that will offer suitable solutions.

Having skills in class and having theoretical knowledge and not using them to arrive with new ideas is considered outdated. As an electrical engineer, you are expected to use your skills successfully at all times.

Q- What is the difference between ‘electrical and communication engineer’ and ‘electronic and communication engineering’?
A- Electrical engineering and Electronics Engineering both deal with the signal related issue. But the major difference is that the Electrical engineer works with signals of HIGH POWER and LOW FREQUENCY. Whereas Electronics and communication are about dealing with signals of LOW POWER and HIGH FREQUENCY.

Q- What are the possible short term courses which could be pursued B.Tech in Electrical Engineering?

  • Advanced Diploma in Real-Time Operating Systems
  • PG Diploma course in Industrial Automation System Design
  • Diploma in VLSI Design
  • A certificate program in VLSI design engineering
  • Diploma in Embedded Systems Design
  • Online course on Embedded Systems

Q- Is it possible to pursue Engineering as well as a diploma in Electronics at a time?
A- No, it's not possible to carry out with two regular courses at a time. Two things cannot be pursued all together. Also, Pursuing two courses together won’t necessarily help you attain a good job.
