Electronics and Communication engineering, often abbreviated as ECE, is one of the most sought-after engineering courses in India after Computer science, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. It involves designing, developing and manufacturing electronic equipment (for devices and circuits) as well as communication systems. The course enables you with a clear understanding of analog transmission, basic electronics, microprocessors, solid-state devices, digital analog communication, satellite communication, Integrated circuits, antennae and wave progression and microwave engineering.
There is a thin line between the Electronics and Communication Engineering course and Electrical Engineering (EE) course that people from outside the domain tend to not understand. While Electrical Engineering (EE) is associated with large-scale electrical systems, Electronics engineering (ECE) involves small-scale electronics systems.

The eligibility criteria for ECE courses at various levels are:
For Diploma in Electronics and Communication Engineering
Most of the colleges take admission into diploma courses directly based on the merit in the 10+2 examinations.
For Undergraduate Electronics and Communication Engineering Courses
Candidates must have scored an aggregate of a minimum 50-55% of the total marks in 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
For lateral entry admission, a diploma course is required.
For Postgraduate Electronics and Communication Engineering Courses
Candidates must have a B. Tech in ECE with a minimum of 50% marks or a GPA of 5/10.
A minimum of 50-55% in Class 12 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects.
For Ph. D. in Electronics and Communication Engineering
Candidates must have a minimum of 55% or 6 CGPA in their M. Tech. from a recognized university/college.
Different exams are conducted at an undergraduate and postgraduate level to offer admissions into Electronics and communication engineering courses. Some of them are:
Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main)-: It is the first stage of a 2-stage joint entrance examination. It is conducted for admission to all the NITs and various state-level engineering colleges at the undergraduate level. The exam is of 3 hours and is conducted online.
Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced): It is conducted for admission to all the IITs and can only be taken by students qualifying the first stage, i.e. JEE Main. Questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are asked in a span of 6 hours.
Engineering courses are very popular among the students in India. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) helps build a career in the Telecom industry, consumer electronics manufacturing organization, Software Industry, Mobile Communication & IT Industry, Power Electronics, Healthcare Equipment Manufacturing Industry and several others like that of steel and chemicals. The Media and Entertainment industry is often deemed as the largest recruiter of ECE Engineers. They are also recruited in large numbers in government sectors. Public Sector Undertakings such as MTNL, BSNL and IOCL have been recruiting them for a long time. Apart from this, many graduates prefer Indian Engineering Service, which is considered very prestigious in the engineering field. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) Engineers are also employed in the Semiconductor and Chip design Industry predominantly.
There are always options for higher studies to gain more proficiency in the subject. The field of electronics is growing every day and has a huge scope to accommodate eligible young professionals.

Electronics and Communication Engineering offers a wide range of career prospects for the students enrolled in the course. With the advent of technology, a larger number of ECE and electrical graduates are required in the market. Qualified electronics and communication engineers can choose from a variety of sectors to build their career in. Some even opt for working in software industries for the long term or indefinitely as they pay higher. Indian telephone industry, Defense, AIR, NPL and development centres across various states keep hiring ECE graduates year after year. A knack to learn new things along with dedication, will take you a long way in this industry.
Electronics and Communication Engineering Graduates seek out jobs in both software and telecom industries. They can land a job in electricity plant, aviation, consumer electronics, manufacturing, communication & telecommunication, transportation, computer application and equipment manufacturing. Various job profiles in which they work are mentioned in the table below.
A professor usually teaches students by explaining the concepts and shares his/her knowledge with them.
They are in charge of the systems controlling the flow of data such as communication and broadcasting, computers and various other electronic gadgets.
Their main job is to design and analyze the system as well as to implement new systems and to correct software errors in existing ones.
Their main job is to ensure the configuration of the computer’s hardware and update the existing systems.
A programmer analyst is responsible for analyzing the information system.
The top recruiters include:
The skills required for Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) courses are no different from that of other courses. Interest in Electric charges, Electrostatic potential and capacitance, Electromagnetic Induction, Current electricity and several other related chapters in class 12th physics might help. Apart from this, the skills that make a good ECE Engineer are –
The syllabus of the Electronics and Communication Engineering course covers the essentials of engineering mathematics, chemistry, physics and engineering drawing. In most of the undergraduate colleges, the syllabus for the first year is common irrespective of the branch of the students. From the second year onwards, specific subjects of the discipline are covered. Students enrolled in this course are taught the basics of electrical circuits, power electronics gadget, VLSI, Applied Electromagnetic theories, integrated circuits and control frameworks.
