Study Abroad: Where To Study Electronics and Communications Engineering? What Are The Eligibility And Job Roles?

If you are looking for a career in the communications industry, Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) courses can be the perfect starting point. This stream of engineering will give you a broad understanding of the mathematical and scientific principles underpinning Electronic Engineering and how they influence communications.

What is ECE?

This specific discipline combines Communication Engineering and Electrical Engineering — it looks into the design and testing of electronic circuits and communication devices like transmitters, receivers and integrated circuits.

ECE also involves a wide range of specialised topics like high-frequency and microwave technology used in mobile communication links, long-haul optical and satellite communication, data transmission and security, internet connectivity and digital broadcasting.

Studying ECE:

  • You need to clear your Class XII board exams or an equivalent exam with Physics, Chemistry, Maths as compulsory subjects. You need at least 75% marks for admission to IITs, NITs and GFTIs.
  • You need to clear JEE Mains, conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), for admission to NITs, CFTIs and other engineering institutes.
  • You need to clear JEE Advanced to get into IITs and IIT (ISM) Dhanbad. To be eligible for JEE Advanced, you need to be among the top 2,50,000 successful candidates (across all categories) in the BE/BTech paper of JEE Mains.
  • You can get an ECE degree by clearing any of the state joint entrance exams.
  • For a master’s degree in ECE, you need to clear GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering).
