Electronics And Communication Engineering: This Is How ECE Grads Can Work On 5G, Tinker With Robots & Master Internet Of Things

Electronics and Communication Engineering is a prime branch of engineering, that would never cease to discover, invent and restore technological advancements, in this modern era. A young engineer equipped with a degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering, enjoys great career opportunities and excellent collaborations for advanced studies in India and abroad.

An electronics and communication engineer mainly deals with electronic devices, sophisticated communication gadgets including receivers, transmitters, integrated circuits besides satellite communication, microprocessors, wave progressions et al. The vast discipline with innumerable career opportunities, offers immense knowledge in conceptualizing, even customizing various applications for faster analysis, production, operation, execution and even maintenance.  

Graduating in Electronics and Communication engineer is a prestigious qualification to hold as it opens up ample job opportunities in communications, broadcasting, research and development, data communication and even entertainment.

In a Q&A session with Dr N S Murthy, Chairperson: Electronics & Communications, Amrita School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Bengaluru Campus, we bring all you need about this high-in-demand discipline of engineering.

Well. Our core philosophy in teaching is to offer stronger fundamental knowledge in each subject. The first two years of the course focusses on making each student quite an adept in their basics while from the third year, our emphasis shifts on to innovations, new technologies and applications. It is no exaggeration to say that technological advancements these days are happening at a lightning speed, sometimes even quarterly.

We constantly keep abreast of latest discoveries, prospective innovations and try including in our curriculum. Our syllabus for all the four years undergoes a major scrutiny periodically, to include what’s actually relevant today and for the future.

Being industry ready has many dimensions. It doesn’t end with acquiring required knowledge but applying it effectively plays a pivotal role. Thinking innovatively, solving problems are other expected skills. To make students understand the demands in the industry, we have faculty with industrial experience and while deciding upon the curriculum in every Board of Study meeting, we make it a point to include honchos from corporates. We seek advice, opinion before deciding upon the new syllabus. However, being innovative, critical thinking can be acquired only through working on various projects. The in-house projects provide enough fodder to their brains while outside projects in industries teach handling various real-life challenges.

Students with good mathematical background can do wonders in this branch. ECE is more like an applied physics and stronger foundation in maths and physics comes in handy. Besides that, the student also would require a great aptitude to solve challenges coming their way. I don’t call it easy but if you have above said qualities, it is not tough either.

For an ECE graduate, there is no dearth for career choices. The paths open up and they can excel in any field. ECE touches upon a wide range of topics, not just the hardware part of the electronics and communication but we also in detail explain about the software that makes these electronics work.

We are in fact teaching all software programs including C, C++, python etc. Unless an ECE learns both hardware and software, he or she is not a complete Electronics and Communication Engineer.

It is imperative to understand the career goals of each student before sharing the advice. Many students are upfront about their career choices. If they lean towards research, they can go for higher studies, complete their doctoral and even post-doctoral studies and settle in academics plus research. R&D opportunities are aplenty in industry too. Electronics & Communications Engineers can get placed in DRDO and similar government organisations or prestigious companies like Philips, IBM, Intel. In fact, all these corporate conglomerates pump in a lot of money into research activities and there is always an opportunity to discover your passion. In fact, kids with research-oriented mindset, do not even prefer internships and prefer to work on their own.

However, statistically we are seeing a trend in the last few years. Around 80% of the students join internship, get placed in the companies to get a detailed understanding of industry demands. The rest prefer higher education.

There are many GATE coaching centres, visiting us regularly and interacting with the students. Few coaching centres also provide free coaching for the toppers. Amrita Centre For International Programs at the University provides all necessary guidance to the students going out to other institutions abroad through exchange programs. Our undergraduate, graduate students and faculty too can visit prestigious universities in other countries, with whom we have collaborations and work on the projects there. At least 10 students get a chance to work on these internships in Europe and the US.

Our students look forward to doing internships and they are proactive in any opportunity that comes their way. From the department, we send the resumes of our students, bridge connectivity between industries and students. Our annual internship mela is one of its kind in which at least 200 companies participate and choose students to work with them. The placement interviews happen during 6th semester and the students who secure the job, also gets internship opportunity in the company. It in fact serves like a package deal – both internship and job at one shot.

Students who have graduated in Electronics Communication and Engineering can get placed in various jobs related to areas like Applied Electromagnetics, Smart Electronic Systems, VLSI Design, Computer Hardware Systems, Machine Learning, Wireless Systems, Information Processing and Biomedical Systems.

The opportunities are aplenty both in India and abroad. Thanks to the efforts of placement cell and relentless support of faculty, we can proudly say that the students who have had Amrita are a first choice in many corporates and are widely appreciated for their professionalism, discipline and exceptional skills in executing even the toughest tasks.

In fact, the world of technology will witness a major leap in the coming years. Robotics is the next big thing and it is an eclectic mix of interface of computer science and engineering. In next few years, many of us would be witnessing robots in our daily life and their design involves a great deal of design, construction, operation and execution.

Ditto with 5G technology. Call drops, inaudible, muffled conversations over phone will soon be a passé, enabling an amazing network that will connect everything to everybody in a virtual world be it humans, machines, objects and various devices.

The differences between various branches of engineering now stand blurred, thanks to Internet of Things (IoT) as it is interrelated to computing devices, both mechanical and digital devices, identified by unique identifiers (UIDs) making it super easy to transfer data between human-to-human or human to computer interaction.

As it was mentioned before ECE is spreading its presence in every field, industry and it is one engineering discipline that would never stop growing.

Amrita offers a healthy learning experience that would encourage critical thinking, analysis, increases core competency in each student that would aid them both in their professional and personal lives. The students can choose their electives and they will be offered all required support in customizing their courses. We also have open courses, which means the student can take courses from other disciplinary. Ditto with open lab where they can experiment with various topics from other departments and whet their curiosity on other subjects as well.

Another unique feature is Live-In Labs. Introduced by Mata Amritanandamayi, it is a need of the hour for the youth of country. Under this the students can travel with mentoring faculty visit rural areas, live there for couple of weeks to understand and take stock of their living conditions. After experiencing the issues firsthand, the students will be encouraged to find solutions for their problems through our R&D, find solutions and go back to village with an answer that would lead to their betterment and improve standard of living. In a nutshell, it is providing a solution for the issues being faced in the hamlets. Around 50 to 60 students do this every academic year and as far as we know no other university in India offers such a hands-on training.

The faculty, staff and students at Amrita are a big family, that stays together, prospers bringing laurels to the country.
