Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering (also called electronic engineering) is an electrical engineering discipline which utilizes nonlinear and active electrical components (such as semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits) to design electronic circuits, devices, VLSI devices and their systems. The discipline typically also designs passive electrical components, usually based on printed circuit boards.
Electrical and Communications is a discipline within electrical engineering. The course involves study of the application of mathematical and scientific principles to design and integrate electrical and electronics systems. The course also includes the study of mechanisms involved in the generation of electrical power. Students also learn about the development and operation of communication technology.
The course includes telecommunication and computer programming apart from core subjects like electronics engineering, telecommunications engineering, laser and optical engineering and integrated circuit design. Completion of postgraduate and undergraduate degrees in Electrical and Telecommunications engineering opens doorways for students to work in different job profiles like service engineers, software analyst, network planning engineer and field test engineer.
