Electronics is integrated with communications in severasectors. The most common example of this is the telephone. Telecommu-nication technology has developed at a very rapid pace like radio waves, microwaves, wireless technology, and many more. Internet is the best and most example of this sector we see in day today life.
Electronics & Communications Enginee-ring is one of the largest and fastest growing fields of engineering. It covers a wide range of applications which make our life easier and enjoyable such as television, radio, computers, telecommunication. They help us to see, hear and communicate over vast distances and do things faster. Electronics has a major role in improving productivity in industries like oil, energy, agriculture and so many other important sectors of economy. It is electronic devices that direct, controand test production processes in steel, petroleum and chemicaindustries. Healthcare industry depends on electronic instruments to perform chemicatests and to check body functions. Elec-tronics play a pivotarole for safety in transportation, factories & mines and homes.
An electronics engineer must find new solutions to the practicaproblems affecting our daily lives. An electronics engineer wilwork in tandem with other specialists to design, fabricate, produce, test and supervise the manufacture of complex products and systems such as electronic equipment and components for a variety of industries including hospitals, computer industry, electronic data processing systems for communication and defense etc. They supervise production and manufacturing processes and oversee installation and maintenance. Electronics engineers work with devices that use extremely smalquantity of power. They work with microprocessors, fibre optics, and in telecommunication, television, radio etc.
Electronics engineering is a constantly changing and widening branch of the engineering profession. Electronics industry being a labour intensive industry provides many job opportunities for skilled job seekers. Increased production and demand by government and enterprizes for communication equipment, computers and military electronics along with consumer demand and increased research and development on robots and other types of automation contributes to the growth of employment opportunities in the field. Candidates having a creative and inventive mind and also are good at physics and mathematics wilprobably find electronics engineering a challenging and lucrative career.
What does an Electronics and Communication Engineer do?
