Both communications and electronics engineering are great choices! It all depends on what you are interested in. Any engineering degree will give you great career growth. I would first start by figuring out which classes you like best. Have you taken classes on both the communications and electronics side? Which one do you enjoy learning most about? Next, I would look for opportunities to either do research or get an internship in either field. This will give you better insight into both fields. You can always do research/internships in both fields as well to give you a better comparison.

Also, don't be worried about deciding right away. If you wind up going into one field and decide you want to go into the other field that is always an option!

Hi there,

I studied this, after doing this course I found I was interested in coding and development. I think that this is a brilliant way to start into a technical industry. I also was able to work in telecoms for a short time. what worked for me was finding a college project that sparked my interest and grow more in that space. I then went on to complete two masters in IT and now work in technical support. This type of course gives you both an understanding in hardware and software and how both connect.

As Mr Ernest said there is allot of opportunities in tuition reimbursement, :-D

Yesvanthika,
I hope all is well with you. There are many installer positions available on the market right now. That's only if you want to deal with analyzing, coordination and troubleshooting mainly paperwork. But if using tools is your thing of course there will be paperwork just not as much, you should apply as a electronic assembly tech. Both have tremendous growth especially through tuition reimbursement.

What do you you think about internships?

I hope the little information I shared will be useful feel free to ask questions.
I wish you the best on your journey.

I have started the same way, microelectronics, digital technology etc. (In Germany)

There are lots of jobs you could work in related to this field but there are also lots of opportunities for the future as you have a good foundation after you have a degree in electronics/ communication engineer. I have worked as a technician repairing TV's and all kind of electronics, moved into computer hardware (Networking) and moved then into IT Software Support. I know work as Customer Success Manager which I enjoy a lot as I love to work with people and like to improve things for them so basically make them successful.

One advise I have is to not grab every opportunity, make sure that the job is the right one for you and you will be fine.

Hi Yesvanthika,
I studied Electronics and Communication Engineering and graduated in 2019.
From my own experience as well as what I have seen , an E&C engineer will have the opportunity to get jobs both in the hardware and the software roles.
Hardware roles include circuit modelling, design and verification engineer, etc while software roles include software development, IT and networking.
You will get a lot of opportunities on both sides and choose the kind of role that you see yourself doing in the future.

Yes, there is a lot of scope on the hardware side but that doesn't mean the software side can't provide the similar growth and opportunity.

Please don't decide what you want to do purely based on the scope but instead explore different career paths and then take a choice based on what you find interesting.

Being an electronics and communication engineer is still keeping your options open . It would be best if you can identify the main subjects that interest you. Also identify if its software or hardware side that you are more attracted to. I did my bachelors in electrical engineering and then my masters with a major in telecommunication and minor on software and networking. In my career I have used a combination of all this, after figuring out that software side was more for me than hardware. But, then that was a purely personal choice based on my strengths.
