Until the mid of 20th century, most of the regions in India had no electricity despite it being made available in Calcutta in 1879 and then in 1881. Now even the thought of living without electricity makes us horrified. No TV, no refrigerator, no AC – how to survive then. This is how we have become solely dependent on electrical and electronic goods and the means.

With our so much dependency on electrical things, the electrical and electronics engineering scope has also surged in leaps and bounds. More students are keen towards this branch of engineering to ensure a future-proof career in this field. But the scope should not be the only reason for which you should enrol for an engineering course in this branch. One should have the knack for learning the concepts of electrical and electronics engineering, then only B.Tech in EEE will prove to be a goldmine for you in terms of growth.

Let’s discuss the opportunities one can have in multiple industries after completing their B.Tech in Electrical & Electronics Engineering.

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Chemical
  • Construction
  • Defence
  • Electronics
  • Marine
  • Materials and metals
  • Oil and gas
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Power generation
  • Railway
  • Telecoms
  • Utilities

Scope of Electrical & Electronics Engineers in Public Sector

Apart from the private industries, the EE engineers are also demanded across the various government departments. With a professional engineering degree, you stand more chances of getting a government job after engineering, which is not only rewarding but also keeps you away from the factors like recession, inflation, etc. You lead a smooth and respectable life of an engineer deputed in the government sector.

Following are some the PSUs that recruit electrical engineers:

  • Container Corporation of India Ltd
  • Gas Authority of India Limited
  • Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd
  • Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited
  • Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.
  • National Aluminium Company Limited
  • National Fertilizers Limited
  • National Hydroelectric Power Corporation
  • National Thermal Power Corporation Limited

Apart from private and public sectors in India, the electrical & electronics engineers do stand a chance to settle abroad with multiple career opportunities. The governments in various industries including India have launched various schemes or have them in pipeline for expansion of the overall electrical & electronics industry. With such support from the government, the industry is all set to witness its golden time in the coming years. And, the advancements in the field have also paved the way for its growth in manifold.

If you are looking towards admission in an engineering program this year, then going ahead with this branch of engineering is going to be a safe bet in terms of your career progression. But always make sure to choose a college where you have enough scope for you to learn with innovation since innovation is the most important thing in engineering that keep you going. All the best for your college hunt in the upcoming academic session.
