Electrical Engineering : Prospects and Future

During first year of engineering electrical engineering students learn about Common engineering courses like Engineering mathematics, Physics, Engineering Drawing and fundamentals of computing. From second year they will start learning about Thermodynamics, introductory electronics, signal processing and instrumentation, signals, systems and electric networks, microelectronics, control systems, communication systems, power systems, electromagnetic systems, electrical machines, and power generation techniques.
By the end of final year students can be well equipped with the understanding of working and application of electric systems and engineering.

There are equally good opportunities for jobs in electrical engineering industry and higher education. There is lot of multidisciplinary research for developing electric vehicles with great funding and scope all over there world. On the same time good opportunities back home in industry.


Academic Qualifications

A candidate should have passed 12th or equivalent with physics, chemistry and mathematics as compulsory subjects. One can obtain a diploma in Electrical Engineering. Reputed colleges, universities and the Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs) offer B.E, B.Tech, M.E, M.Tech and doctoral degrees.


Specialization

Academic programs on electrical engineering emphasize on the thorough understanding of electrical networks, electrical energy converters, devices of electromagnetic field theory, electrical energy distribution systems etc.


Scope
Scopes in electrical engineering lie in the areas of generating electricity, its distribution and transmission. Electrical engineering also has its applications in electronics, telecommunications, computers and micro processors. Most of the courses are a combination of electrical and electronic systems.


Job Opportunities
An electrical engineer has a wide range of activities, and thus, a lot of options. Career in electrical engineering encompasses the following fields:



  • Telecommunications Systems
  • Electric Power Stations
  • Wiring and lighting of houses
  • Designing household appliances
  • Electrically-controlled industrial machinery
  • Communications
  • Computers
  • Electronics
  • Robotics
  • Biomedical electronics
  • Signal processing
  • Transportation
  • Industrial process control
  • Energy operation and distribution
