One of the major engineering fields that are responsible for the development of electronic devices like Television, Computers, Telephones, and other useful electronic gadgets is ECE. For the simplification and perfection of human efforts, ECE engineers have contributed cutting edge technology and also made several electronic devices. From these contributions, one can say that this branch of engineering has a long way to go.
The ECE engineers work for transmission of information across channels like coax cable or optical fiber. They also design equipment such as routers, fiber optics and electronics switching systems for the transmission channels.
Today, an electronics and communication engineer works in the fabrication and designing of electronic components and gadgets for the sectors like hospitals, computers, electronic data processing systems for communication, defense, etc. These engineers work with optical fibers, microprocessors & microcontrollers, solid-state devices, antennas, signals, etc. Electronics and communication engineering is a forever growing branch where highly skilled professionals get lucrative job opportunities. As the ECE branch has computer programming in its curriculum, the ECE engineers have the chance of working as programmers or software developers in the software industry.
The intersection of electronics and communication and other engineering branches in the fields of satellite communication, mobile communication, power electronics, and digital telecommunication have created a pool of opportunities for ECE engineers. Their services are required vehemently in the manufacturing firms, MNCs, Research Industry, Government Offices, Army, Air Force, Navy, and Consumer Electronics Manufacturing Industry.
