One of the core courses of Engineering discipline, Electrical Engineering deals with the study of design, development and maintenance of electrical systems and their components, ensuring quality, safety, reliability and sustainability.
The course focuses on the manufacturing of electrical equipment used in a number of sectors including construction and building and the production and distribution of power. Electrical Engineering has a wide scope in today’s industry.
One can secure a job in Power Distribution Companies, Power Plants, Railways, Metro Rails, Aviation Sector and Manufacturing Sector. Also, various government organisations like SAIL (Steel Authority of India Limited), BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electronics Limited), ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Company), PGCIL (Power Grid Corporation of India Limited), DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) and many more.
Most private manufacturing units and industries make use of electricity and machines. Thus, it is safe to say that directly or indirectly, a large proportion of industries hire Electrical Engineers.
Electrical engineering is rapidly growing not only within core areas such as wireless communications and mobile technologies but also in other cross-functioning areas Including Nanotechnology and Biomedical Engineering.
The world is moving towards the renewable source of energy including Hydel, Solar and Wind Power, and multi-national corporations are searching for power generation experts.
