The students who choose Electronics Engineering as a U.G Degree get wider prospects of opportunities not only in IT industries but also in core sectors. The scope gets expanded and students get ample opportunities in software-based companies as well as in hardware-based companies. The Hon’ble Prime Minister has given impetus to growth with several innovative initiatives such as “Make in India”, “Digital India”, “100 Smart Cities” and “Skill India” where the electronics sector plays a very important role.

Students who graduate from ETC can work in industries such as Information Technology, Web Design, PCB Design, Robotics and Automation, Telecommunications, and Health Care Equipment Manufacturing, Mobile Communication (2G, 3G, and 4G), IoT based applications in Smart Cities, Power Electronics, VLSI and other Industries such as Steel, Petroleum, and Chemical Manufacturing. Through UPSC, ETC students can work in the Government and Business sector in the areas of design, manufacture, installation, operation, and maintenance of electronic equipment and systems, as well as the Intelligence Bureau and Security. Because of the integration of electronics into numerous new industrial verticals, new opportunities and paths are opening up for electronics and communication experts. Self-driving automobiles, autonomous drone logistics, robotics, industrial automation, smart energy systems, and other cutting-edge technology are just a few examples. However, getting to know these businesses will be difficult because they require engineers who are more hands-on with cutting-edge technology

  1. IT Industry: The students are more likely to be exposed to IT industries if they have skills to acquire basic and fundamental logic design concepts and enthusiasm to write programs. Many students are interested to learn the circuits and apply it to the coding part so that they participate in developing small integrated projects at U.G Level. This skill helps them to get a scope in R & D Sections of various industries.
  2. Electronics Industry: The Make in India initiative focused mainly on manufacturing chip, PCBs and VLSI, fabrication labs, which is the next milestone to be achieved within 4 years. Cell phones, Wi-Fi, and television will cease to function without these circuits. A variety of sectors have sprung up to fulfill customer expectations, creating a plethora of work prospects for electronics engineers. Companies are now spending a lot of money and time developing more efficient solar cells, windmills, and systems that can generate electricity from the tides, among other things. Electronic engineers can work in a variety of fields because to this technology. PCB Design has also become a good platform in getting jobs for an Electronics Engineer in making India a smart place to live in.
  3. Computer & Digital Systems: With the use of computers, all industries are able to grow technologically at a faster rate than before. From smart watches to Mars rovers, digital systems are ubiquitous and new technologies like IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Data Analytics have boosted the day to day living style of people. As the internet has grown in popularity, we are seeing 3G and 4G services that make it easier for businesses and industries to collaborate with one another. Engineers who desire to work in this field have a variety of options. Remote sensing is used in a variety of technologies, from mapping to navigation.
  4. Computer Vision and Image Processing: These technologies aid computers in fields such as medicine, surveying, and photogrammetry, among others. With the use of magneto-resonance imaging technology, we now have medical gadgets that can analyze data to not only display images but also identify ailments.
  5. Robotics and Control Systems: As technology advances, more and more companies are incorporating automation and robotics into their processes to increase efficiency. In the approaching years, many more sectors are expected to use these technologies.

If you are an ETC student, the following are some of the skills and areas on which you should focus in order to boost your job prospects:


  1. Computer literacy is a prerequisite these days; familiarize you with some industrial-grade software.
  2. Improve your interpersonal and communication skills
  3. Gain hands-on experience with academic principles while honing your practical skills.
