Telecommunications Engineering is an engineering discipline centered on electrical and computer engineering which seeks to support and enhance telecommunication systems
This branch of engineering develops everyday devices such as transistors, integrated circuits and printed circuit boards (PCBs) which can be used in computers, MP3 players, cell phones, television to name a few.
The discipline deals with electronic devices and software interfaces. The applications are far reaching, right from the indoors of the house to industries. The tasks of the Electronics and Communication engineers are to direct, control and test produce processes a well as to ensure safety, installation and functioning of the various mechanisms.
The discipline integrates knowledge based on digital electronics and logic design, fundamentals of communication engineering, electronic circuits, signals and systems, power electronics, applied electromagnetic theory, integrated circuits, VLSI, control systems and computer architecture.
The core courses studied in this branch include the following:
Electrical circuits and machines
Signals and systems
Digital Signal Processing
Microprocessors and Embedded systems
The sub fields covered in the Electronics and Communication Engineering include analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics.
After completing a B. Tech/BE students can opt for M. Tech/MS in various subjects such as Fiber Optics and Light waves, Microelectronics & V L S I Design, RF and Microwaves, Telecommunication Systems, Visual Information and Embedded Systems.
This branch offers plethora of job opportunities for the engineers. They are mostly employed by electronic and communication industry. The other industries which offer placement to the students include IT, consumer electronics, power transmission companies, computer applications, aviation, telecommunication, electronic media and manufacturing companies.
According to the NIT Silchar Placement 2015 report, Electronics & Communication Engineering has seen 76 percent of the batch strength getting placed. Highest package of Rs. 9 LPA was offered by BhramHos Aerospace. Besides, electronic giants like Philips, Nokia, Reliance Jio were among the major recruiters this year, offering an average salary of Rs. 5 LPA.
