What is Electronics Sciences

Electronics Sciences is a sub-discipline of physics, technology and engineering which studies the controlled flow and emission of electrons in a vacuum, and matter. This differentiates it from electrical engineering as it utilizes active devices to control electron flow by rectification and amplification instead of using passive effects such as resistance, inductance and capacitance.


In this curriculum of Electronics Sciences, students learn the fundamentals of Analogue Electronics, Communications, Electromagnetic, Digital System Design, Mathematics and Optoelectronics. The motive of this course is to grant students the required knowledge and the essential practical training to make them efficient with technology and to take up relevant projects. These professionals work in different kinds of various industries such as communication, information technology, quality product manufacturing. Automobiles, banking, finance, manufacturing, marketing, defence, education and entertainment also falls under their work field. There are numerous courses in Electronics Science such as B.Sc in Electronics Science, B.Sc (Hons) in Electronics Science, M.Sc in Electronics Science, and M.Phil and PhD in Electronics Science.

What does an electronics science graduate do? 

Electronics sciences graduates or electronics engineers employ different types of electronic components from the more traditional analogue components to digital electronics components such as microprocessors and microcontrollers as well as programmable logic devices. They design, develop control systems, manage the projects in terms of cost and time as well as optimisation of resources. They need to have extensive knowledge of electronics, microelectronics, signal processing, instrumentation and computers. A major part of their work is planning, developing applications, modifying parts and systems to improve technical performance. Students can create an excellent career path for themselves in the production industry, IT sector, technology and communication firms.


Post-graduation, there is also an option to pursue higher education. It can be a Doctorate in Electronics Science or M.Tech in Electronics Engineering which mainly includes circuit and system design, component and materials technology, electro-optics and signal processing.
