What Is The Future For An Electrical Engineer?

What is electrical engineering?

Electrical engineering is one of the core engineering courses. Electrical engineering deals with testing, designing, developing and maintaining electrical equipment that is used for industrial and domestic purposes. Electrical engineering is different from electronic engineering. The latter is more focused on developing appliances and gadgets from common building blocks, whereas the former is the traditional field involving power generation, transmission, etc. One might say that electronics is a subset of electrical engineering.

How to be an electrical engineer?

A bachelor's degree or diploma in electrical engineering is required to be an engineer. A master's degree is also taken for advancement of one's career. You will need four years to earn a bachelor's degree (B.E or B.Tech.) and three years if you want to earn a diploma.


For a B.E or B.Tech. degree, you have to pass 10+2 schooling with 50% aggregate marks in physics, math and chemistry (PCM) stream. For a diploma degree, you need to pass 10th class with 50% aggregate marks in the PCM stream. Every candidate wishing to pursue a degree in electrical engineering has to pass the entrance test that is conducted by various boards and universities. Upon scoring the relevant marks, candidates are enrolled in a particular university.

Academic program

The candidate will take around four years to earn a bachelor's degree and three years to earn a diploma certificate. The degree course comprises several subjects that are fundamental to the trade. Some of the subjects are engineering management, power systems, circuit and field theory, electrical machines, measurements and control, design of electrical system, and more.

If you want to pursue further studies, you can go for M.E. or M.Tech. as well. Those pursuing diplomas can also earn a degree in electrical engineering after completing the diploma.


Some of the well-known colleges for electrical engineering are the IITs in India, including BITs, NIT and other autonomous colleges at the national-level and state-level. However, the top colleges conduct their own entrance exam and based on that score students are enrolled.

Scope and career in electrical engineering

Electrical engineering is termed as an "evergreen" field, and with the rapid pace of industrialisaton, there is more scope than ever. The electrical engineer can work in designing, developing, evaluating, selling, marketing, handling and improving electrical products. Today it is known to be the broadest and the largest engineering discipline.
You can take up jobs in audio and video communication system, electrical energy, training students, and autopilot systems. Today electricity is becoming a basic need for mankind and as everything depends on electricity, the trade is booming.

Electrical engineers can work in areas like electromechanical energy conversion, communications, electrical power stations, biomedical electronics, designing and manufacturing household appliances, railways, IT industry, wiring houses, industries, and many more such fields.


The salary for a fresher is around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000, approximately, and with the increase in experience and skills, the salary will definitely increase manifold. Electrical engineers also have a wide scope abroad as there are plenty of jobs in developed countries as well. The salary depends on the place where you work, educational qualification, industry, size of organization, etc.
