ECE: Electronic and Communication Engineering

ECE stands for Electronics and Communication Engineering. It is a branch of engineering that deals with the researching, designing, developing and testing of electronic equipment and engineering problems related to electronics, computer, telecommunication system, and related industries. In India, ECE is offered by various colleges at the Under Graduate (UG) and Postgraduate (PG) level leading to B.Tech and M.Tech degrees, respectively.

Fullform ECE

ECE engineers are engaged in research, design, and development and testing of the electronic equipment used in various systems. This field is closely related to Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), and the developments in CSE play a significant role in the advancement of ECE. It may be the reason that ECE is always in high demand.

All the electronics equipment that make our life easy and enjoyable are developed by ECE engineers. An electronic & communication engineer generally performs the following tasks:

  • Design, develop and maintain satellites to provide TV, telephone and internet service to remote and rural regions
  • Develop advanced communication facilities like video conferencing which connect people across the world

ECE primarily give emphasis on the following areas:

  • Analog transmission
  • Satellite communication
  • Solid-state devices
  • Digital and analog communication
  • Antennae and wave progression
  • Basic electronics
  • Microprocessors and microcontrollers
  • Analog integrated circuits
  • Microwave engineering

Eligibility for Electronics & Communication Engineering:

The basic eligibility requirement to pursue ECE at the UG and PG level is as follows:

  1. At the UG Level: The candidate must have passed 10+2 examination from a recognized board with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as the main subjects.
  2. At the PG Level: The candidate must have a B.Tech degree in the same specialization with a passing percentage in aggregate of the subjects studied at the UG level.

After completing this degree, one can easily get job in manufacturing industries, service organizations such as broadcasting, data communication, consulting, research and development, and system support. Furthermore, ECE engineer can also get a job in modern multimedia service firms that are involved in the real-time transfer of information through video conferencing and internet broadcasting.
