which is best electronics engineering or Extc

Abir Gayen 14th Jan, 2021

Hi Aspirant,

Both are nearly of the same field but EXtc has opportunities in many telecom and sim operator services and companies like airtel,jio etc easily recruit you if you pass out from a good college.Electronics enginnering also has many job opportunies in various analog and digital companies plus in EXtc you get surfaced to coding also which can also fetch you jobs in IT industries.Both the fields are equally good and each of them has their own importance.But if your college offers the course of ECE then go for it.

hope it helps!!


What is difference between electronics engineering and instrumentation engineer ?

Abir Gayen 13th Jan, 2021

Hi Aspirant,

Instrumentation engineers are those who does works like measuring,researching and installing,developing,testing,maintaining and also designing of the instruments and the machines used in the industries.Instrumentation engineer  also formulate ways for efficient working of the machines and also deals with several problems related to machines.However electronics engineers deals with electronic parts and working of the small electronic devices along with completion of the functions of various semiconductor devices like mosfet,jfet etc.

hope it helps!!

I have taken second year diploma in electronics engineering in gpm as I got only 68 percent in HSC which are low for good colleges ,so what are the subjects and topics for diploma that I should read online which result into no difficulties during studying diploma ?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 29th Dec, 2020


see candidates are eligible to study diploma in engineering after completing 10th with mathematics, and sciences. however you have an added advantage that you have studied 12th as well. now the basics knowledge which would help you for studies from 12th course is mathematics, specially algebra, differentiation, Integration, functions, from physics, current electricity, electromagnetic theory, modern physics, boolean algebra, logic  gates, etc.

refer to the below link to know about the state of up, diploma in electronics engineering syllabus, which would help you to know about the subjects as a reference:



doing electronics engineering is a good choice ? if you have taken then what should you ensure that your future is successful?


Electronics engineering is good branch . From this you can go towards software also and also can do your career in core electronic. So for core you must have to be perfect in the core electronic subjects or you can go for higher education in electronics by appearing for gate . The branch has good scope and also nice opportunities.

Hope my answer will help you
