Humankind as a whole thrives on communication. Right from the everyday conversations between people of similar interests to those that create a mass influence, like radio, television, and computers- communication forms an integral part in developing modern society. Therefore, Electronics and Communication Engineers will always stand as a backbone to the communication systems as the necessity for better and efficient modes of communication hikes. The field, hence, requires bright and intelligent minds with a passion for innovation and invention to birth and develop state-of-the-art technologies that are a step ahead of the modern world.

Why study Electronics and Communication Engineering?

Compelling Necessity

We live in an era of technological advancement, everyday every hour the technology is changing and growing at an geometric rate and Shivalik College of Engineering Dehradun we prepare the students for just the same. We use modern technology and latest machinery to help the students learn and understand the things and their concept in depth and and detail right down to every minute aspect of it, and also help them understand and analyse other theories well and good. Our expert and experienced faculties help the students in understanding the topics and making them dealing with the problems that may arise while working on the same with their practical knowledge and skillset. Under their humble guidance the students use their knowledge and skillset for application purposes of their theoretical knowledge and other practical work of how to apply their theoretical knowledge on live subjects and situations and also help learn and inculcate the right habit of tackling a problem with their skills and knowledge. Electronics have simplified a wide range of sectors including Educational, Industrial, Medical, Defence and Research. Today, with circuits and systems present everywhere from the mobile phones in our hands to the satellites we send up in space, the demand for electronics engineers is an urgent and constant one. Without them, we would not only fail in innovating new and better automation but will also not be able to improve the existing one.

Futuristic Field

The past century has seen a high-curve growth in the field of computers and engineering and many more are still about to come with rise in the demand for different machineries and the urge to make it better and more advanced the technology still grows as every single minute passes by. With our journey from 1G to 4G, we have seen exponential growth in Analog, Digital, Radio, and Telecom Electronics along with aa lot more that we use and see in our day to day lives. Machines have blended with the human world and made every single task simpler and time-saving and have made the human efforts as minimum as possible and does a variety of tasks for us right from the starting of the day till it ends. The future, as well, holds tremendous potential in the IT sector if we continue to follow this curve, as we aspire to as this will never stop until the so called concept of Perfection is achieved in every piece of technology in existence.. The developments in fields ranging from nanotechnology and robotics to high-speed automated processors in embedded systems and image processors demand knowledgeable and skilled electronics engineers to monitor and lead them.

Choices of Paths after Completing Electronics and Communication Engineering

Higher education

After the completion of their Bachelors in Technology in Electronics and Communication Engineering, students can opt for a Masters’s program in a specialized field of their choice or their interests in whichever particular field that might be. You can go for a Masters in Science in fields like Telecommunication Engineering, Microelectronics & VLSI Design, Electronics Design, and Technology, Wireless Communication, Signal Processing, Robotics, Embedded Systems or VLSI System Design and a lot more than that. If you truly aspire for managerial roles, you can go for a Master’s in Business Administration which then opens and widens up your path into the business sector as well, along with your technical knowledge.

Research and development

Electronics engineers can follow the M.Tech- Ph.D.- Research path innovation and development is what interests them. Organizations like ISRO, DRDO, SAIL, and BHEL lead in the research field and are ideal workplaces to engineer new and better technologies for the enhancement of communication and signal systems.

Core Jobs

Students can opt for on and off-campus placements with reputed companies like Semiconductors, Alstom Corporate, Bharat Heavy Electricals, Havells, Crompton Greaves, Neolex Cables, HBM Power Systems, Exide Industries, Siemens, BSNL, Sony Ericsson, Reliance, Nokia, and many more. The positions they can apply for include Design Engineer, ASIC Engineer trainee, Jr. Embedded Engineer, or Network Support Engineer. The fields they will work in are circuit design, wireless communications, robotics, electronics, VLSI, Nanotechnology, Embedded Systems, Digital Electronics, Optical Communications, and Signal among others.

Non-Core Jobs

With sufficient knowledge of computers and coding, electronics and communication engineers can find jobs as assistant software engineers, junior software engineers, programmers, net engineers, quality analysts, and similar positions. The top companies that recruit include Wipro, Tata Consultancy Services, Accenture, Infosys, HCL, and Genpact. These companies provide a good pay scale and work environment.

Government jobs

Public service companies recruit electronics and communication engineers based on written examinations, their GPAs, and skills. The common job profile is that of a technician and the organizations that hire include BSNL, MTNL, ISRO, DRO, and ONGC among others. Electronics engineers can also find jobs in financial services such as banks as technicians or junior engineers.


An electronics engineer with a buzz for business and management can go for a start-up in the ECE field, which holds less competition as compared to other fields due to a lack in the number of start-ups. With persistence and planning, an electronics engineer can build a successful start-up in any sub-field of electronics and communication engineering including VLSI, Robotics, Nanotechnology, Optical Communication, Embedded Systems, Digital Electronics, and many more.
