Career in Electrical Engineering

Posted by Edu4sure team

Manan, after clearing her 12th grade opted for Electrical Engineering. She is pursuing this course from a reputed technological college in Delhi. Further, she divulges in some details and gives out some information regarding this course not known to many and act as helpful.


Is Electrical Engineering all about the work done by an electrician who visits our home to look after the electrical circuits and connections? Absolutely not. This myth strongly needs to be destroyed. An electrical engineer is someone who designs, drafts and develops new electrical impedimenta, solves problems and tests impedimenta.

Only Engineers can see hidden lines and missing curves.

They work with all kinds of electronic devices ranging from the smallest pocket gadgets to the large supercomputers. In electrical engineering, students learn about Common engineering courses like engineering mathematics, fundamentals of computing, thermodynamics, introductory electronics, signal processing and instrumentation, signals, systems and electric networks, microelectronics, control systems, communication systems, power systems, electromagnetic systems, electrical machines, and power generation techniques.


There are good chances for jobs in the electrical engineering industry. One can choose to go for higher education as well. There is a lot of scope for research too. The demand for an environment-friendly power generation, extremely advanced electronic devices, and inexpensive and smart products show that there is a lot of work for Electrical Engineers! Developing latest iPod technology, life-saving medical machinery, and alternative power generation is also a job of the electrical engineers. Electrical engineers start are responsible for developing new electronics systems. They design the circuits and parts of the electronics with the help of a computer. They will create a prototype and test the product to improve it. With the growing need of systems and circuits, an electrical engineer is in demand too.

Core companies offering jobs to electrical engineers: 

 They work in research and development industries, engineering firms, manufacturing firms. Some of the companies employing the electrical engineers are ABB, Bajaj International Private Ltd., Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Centre for Electronics Design and Technology, Crompton Greaves Limited (CGL), Siemens Ltd., Reliance power Ltd., and Wipro Lighting.


The average salary of an electrical engineer is INR 3 lakhs to 3.5 lakh per annum.

Institutes offering Electrical Engineering Course:

1. All the IITs
2. All the NITs
3. Almost All-State universities and Private Engineering Colleges 
4. All Deemed universities

You all must be looking something extra to the above information. You are on the right page. We have something more to offer.  Electrical Engineering is considered to be the newer branches of engineering dealing with technology of electricity. Electrical engineers work on wide range of devices, circuits, systems from tiny chips to huge power stations. The modern era, which introduced transmission of electricity to homes, business and industry have been possible due to electrical engineers.

Thomas Edison, everyone is familiar with this name and is one of the early pioneers in electrical engineering. He invented the electric bulb and failed 99 times but according to him, he did not fail he invented 99 different things. Impressive and Inspiring. Thomas Edison inspired manan and she took up this line. Inspiration can come from anywhere. Anytime. It may continue to inspire some of you as well even the today and become the reason for joining electrical engineering. Well, I can give you more reasons too.

Electrical engineering branch out to a number of specialized categories including power and transmission systems, motors, batteries. Electrical engineering includes Electronics, which is itself branched into a number of subcategories like radio frequency (RF) systems, telecommunications, remote sensing, digital circuits, audio-video, optoelectronics and maybe a few more.

Now the question arises: what really an Electrical Engineer do?

♦ Electrical engineer design, develop, supervise, test the manufacturing of electrical equipment such as electric motors, navigation system, radar, power generation equipment.

♦ Another question: what do Electronic engineer do?

♦ Electronic engineer design and develop electronic equipment such as broadcast and communication system like portable music players.

♦ Extensive skills needed in electrical engineering and include an n-depth understanding of electrical and electronic theory, mathematics, and materials.

♦ Increasing use of Computer Applications and increasing reliability of electrical engineers to design, and function through them.

♦ As the field is broad and depth in nature so does the information about electrical engineering. Only important and too the point information is provided to you in this post.
