Electrical and Electronics Engineering
“Electrical & Electronics Engineering” is a growing and one of the most sought disciplines in the field of engineering study. It comprises with the electrical engineering and electronics engineering.
It is originated by the electrical engineering. By the technically modernization of the world and computerization in our work field, it is necessary to use and understand the circuits and computerized devices in electrical & electronic field.
The electrical & electronics engineering (EEE) involves with the power. It can be existed in various forms like turbine, hydro, gas, fuel cell, solar, wind or geothermal energy. It involves the use, storage and generation of the power and energy.
“Electrical & Electronics Engineering deals with the application & study of Power & Devices”.
Electrical & electronics engineering not only involves in electrical appliances, but also involves in computer, electronics, communication and mechanical fields.
One can become an electrical and electronics engineer after completing the 4-years study of Bachelor of Technology in this field.
Electrical & electronics engineering can involve the large and small amounts of power and devices.
Course & Duration
Electrical & electronics engineering is a fast growing and most popular engineering discipline. Electronics engineering and electrical engineering are the close related to this field. The duration of the total course is four to five years.
After completion of UG degree the students are designated as the Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech). A bachelor degree usually covers the physics, mathematics, and computer science and project management
There are so many specializations in Electrical & Electronics Engineering but to choose in higher degrees after completion of bachelor degree.
You can choose the Electrical & Electronics Engineering, once you have completed your 10 or 10+2 examination with mathematics and physics.
The academic criterion of Electrical & Electronics Engineering is divided into four courses/programmes as follows:
- Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration. (after 10th or 12th)
- UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
- PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after graduation)
- Doctoral courses leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree of ½ – 1 years duration (after post graduation)
The undergraduate syllabus includes major subjects of electromagnetics, network analysis, electronic devices and circuits, signals and systems, control systems, analog and digital communications.
Electrical & Electronics Engineering has the following specializations:
- Signal Processing
- Computer Engineering
- Power Electronics
- Embedded Systems
- Biomedical Imaging
- Power Systems engineering (including renewable energy)
Students can apply for JEE Main after passing their 12th/intermediate examination for admission into 4-years Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) programme. Students seeking for admission in IITs have to clear JEE Advanced after qualifying JEE Main. After getting bachelor’s degree in engineering, students will be eligible for GATE which provides admission into M.Tech course.
There are also various state and University level entrance exams for admission into electrical and electronics engineering:
- VITEEE (VIT Engineering Entrance Examination)
- VITMEE (VIT University Master’s Entrance Examination)
- AP EAMCET (Andhra Pradesh Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test)
- TS EAMCET (Telangana Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test)
- BCECE Board organizes BCECE (Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Examination)
In India, Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) and National Institute of Technology (NITs) are considered best for pursuing engineering courses.
