JOB oriented Courses in Electronics and Communication Engineering

Published 4 years ago

Before choosing Electronics and Communication Engineering as an Academic qualification, everyone wonders about further job opportunities in it and what are the relevant courses one can do to grasp those opportunities.

Here in this section you will be acknowledge with Every possible courses provided and greater insight of those.

»Before we begin, let's take an idea towards creation of job in this sector-

It is one of the populous branch of Engineering. Due to the Globalization and advancement in Technology it opens up plenty of opportunities for an EC engineer.

With the evolution in Electrical Engineering we can see its usage and application in our day to day life from a simple pocket FM radio, televisions, mobile phones, home appliances to the high-end satellites. Electronics have become the right hand of human being by easing our daily activities and efficiently making work done. Thus, the scope of Electronics and Communication Engineering has increased manifolds. Everywhere there is huge demand of qualified and skilled engineer.

◆Now let's see, the job oriented courses in Electrical and Communication Engineering-

Many of us are aware of Masters Courses in core branches let's take a closer look to that.

●Core branches offering masters in Electronics and Communication Engineering are-

1)Power system


3)Control system

1)Masters in Power System in Electronics and Communication Engineering-

This course prepares EC engineers for professional practice in the electric utility industry. This program brings together a wide variety of analytical and practical subjects, both classical and current, that are necessary for engineering success in today's power industry.

              It is a full-time 2 year post-graduate program in Power System Engineering. The eligibility of which is holding a qualifying degree in B.Tech or B.E with a minimum aggregate of 55% marks and above.


2) Masters in Electronics in Electrical and Communication Engineering-

Masters in Electronics allows you to specialize in designing devices and systems based on printed circuit boards. A Master in Electronics means studying a wide range of subjects, including Physics, Chemistry and Math. The field offers room for growth, career development, and high salary opportunities.

Masters in Electrical Engineering courses are typically offered as either M.Eng (Master of Engineering) or M.Sc (Master of Science) degrees. Before opting for masters you need to have a bachelor's degree in Engineering with minimum 55% marks. Many colleges conduct their own entrance. It's a 2 years program and in some college for 3 years.

3) Masters in Control System in Electronics and Communication Engineering-

Control engineering is applied to various objects like from simple household device like washing machine to fighter aircraft. Without this field, machines would not be able to operate without human control.

Some colleges offer admission through entrance test while some other institutions give admissions on the basis of merit list of the qualifying examination. It’s a 2 years full time post graduate program.

JOBS in Electrical Engineering-

 However Jobs are categories in two categories-



1) Hardware

Hardware jobs in EC based on doing research of customer needs and designing cost-effective efficient hardware that will be implemented in various types of electronics.

Hardware jobs are further classified as-

(I) Electronics

(II) Communication

(I) Electronics-

For electronics you can do short term courses like-

»PCB designer-

PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design brings your electronic circuit to life in the physical form.

Engineers design and develop electronic equipment, such as broadcast and communications systems, from portable music players to global positioning systems (GPSs).

In order to become a PCB engineer one must have a bachelor’s degree. It is necessary for one to have a good basic knowledge of circuits, be familiar with the functions and performance of various components and have a good logical thinking ability.


CAD(Computer Aided Design) programs allow a person to create a visual representation of an object. These engineers are responsible for circuit design. To be a CAD designer one will have to require a degree in engineering, whether it is electrical, mechanical, or software.

»PCB Manufacturing-

Manufacturing of the PCBs is normally achieved using a chemical etching process. Before PCB design, circuit designers are recommended to get a tour of a PC board shop and communicate with fabricators face to face over their PCB manufacturing demands.

»PCB Testing-

The work of PCB tester is to Identify and address faults and bugs such as short circuits, opens, poor soldering, functional issues and more.

»Electronic Component Design-

 Electronic component engineers participate in the design, assembly, and testing of components to make sure they meet the company's specifications for quality and performance. While master's degrees are not uncommon among these professionals, most component engineers hold bachelor's degrees in engineering or a related field.


In communication side some of well defined courses in hardware are-

»CISCO Certified Courses-

CISCO(Commercial and industrial security corporation)offers various courses which are, divided in levels-

Entry level- (CCENT)Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician represents the lowest level of certification which covers basic networking knowledge.

Associate level-(CCNA/CCDA) Cisco-Certified Design Associate (CCDA) certified engineers can design switched or routed networks of LANs, WANs and broadband services.

Professional level-(CCNP) Cisco Certified Network Professional Certifications validate knowledge and skills required to install, configure, and troubleshoot converged local- and wide-area networks with 100 to 500 or more end-devices. One needs a valid CCNA certification to obtain a CCNP certification.

Expert level-Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert represents Cisco's highest certification, comprising seven tracks at present.

»Course offered by JETKING-

Jetking offers reputed courses for engineers in which they teaches student fundamentals of electronics and basic application like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and go up to MS Windows Server 2008, Linux and CCNA. Duration of course is approx 15months or varies.

There are also some courses available on Fiber Optics technology, Telecom and wireless.

There are many private institutes which offer relevant courses like Simtech, Techvidya etc.


Now on the software side you can do courses like-

»VLSI(very large scale integration)-

VLSI technologies course trained candidates with various domains of chip design.

Any engineering graduate can opt for this, it comprises of various duration and fees depends on institute chosen.

»embedded coding-

In this course you will learn how to implement software configuration management and develop embedded software applications.


its stands for(supervisory control and data acquisition)it plays a important role in automation projects.

There are some which have overlapped between hardware and software they are-


The courses build knowledge in which you will learn how to program a robot to perform a variety of movements such as flying and grasping objects. the courses can be taken as a degree program or can be taken for personal professional enrichment, Classes in robotics are offered in engineering departments at universities, as well as in technical colleges.

»Circuit design-

In this course you will be taught how to use software applications to design and structure a circuit board and the functional parts necessary for successful performance.

For these courses you can join government institute like CDAC in pune, NIELIT(National institute of electronics and information technology) or you can join private institute nearby offering efficient courses.

However, many professional suggests rather than joining any institute and getting bookish knowledge would not help in getting job, instead of that if you do these courses by your own, online by Coursera, EDX etc. gain hands on experience by doing projects will helps you in gaining skills which actually industry needs.
