Hi, I am happy to discuss this topic about the career-oriented professional courses after the Electronics and Communication degree in engineering. There are a lot of things which you must know about which will help you go for right career option after your graduation.

 

For any Confusion Regarding Career Paths – Take here: Psychometric Career Tests including Ideal Career Test

Electronics and communication engineer can find employment with core electronics companies, communication engineering companies, computer and IT companies or other manufacturing industries in their production, quality control, maintenance or research and development department.

There are a number of courses in the form of postgraduate degree programs and diploma courses in core engineering or related subject. Here, one gets confused in deciding which course best matches their interest, skills and long-term career goals. They don’t need to worry at all as below are mentioned such courses that they can choose as per their expertise:

M.Tech Degree

M.Tech is a very good option after B.Tech in India. For this, they will need to start preparing for entrance exams such as GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) in advance to get admission in reputed Indian colleges like IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology), IISC (Indian Institute of Science) or NITs (National Institute of Technology).

M.Tech is a specialization course but with limited scope. M.Tech graduates lack understanding of business management which might restrict their growth in the corporate world.

MBA Degree

There is a common misconception among engineering graduates that they should not go for an MBA after passing out from a technical line. But for those who are confused about what after B.Tech and those who have ever dreamt of seeing themselves in managerial positions, MBA is the right choice. MBA courses come with a wide range of specializations such as Human Resource (HR), Sales and Marketing, and International Relations etc. which provide aspirants an option to choose their area of interest.

Those who want to do MBA directly after the graduation need to first appear for all the entrance exams such as CAT (Common Admission Test) conducted by IIMs (Indian Institute of Management) in India, XAT (Xavier Aptitude Test), SNAP (Symbiosis National Aptitude Test), NMAT (Narsee Monjee Institute of Management), CMAT (Common Management Admission Test), TISS (Tata Institute of Social Sciences), IRMA (Institute of Rural Management Anand ) etc. to get admission into the top 30 MBA colleges In India.

MBA provides technical graduates with management knowledge and leadership qualities necessary for success in the corporate world. But on the other hand, MBA hinders an engineering graduate from getting involved with designing of the product. Read the following article on advantages and disadvantages of MBA after B.Tech.

Short-Term & Diploma Courses

There are a number of useful jobs oriented short-term and diploma courses available in India which one can choose from after completing B.Tech as they provide practical knowledge in the related field and improve one’s technical skills in specific areas within limited time frame. Pursuing such courses allows one to assess their knowledge and know about the industry’s expectations.

Here is a list of such certification and professional courses depending on the B.Tech degree one holds:

B.Tech in Electronics & Communication Engineering:

  • Embedded Technology
  • Robotics
  • Very-Large-Scale Integration (VLSI)
  • Nanotechnology

Software Related

  1. Software Development -You can always opt for learning languages such as JAVA, Python, C Sharp etc. Since you have a strong hold in programming, learning these would allow you to put in your resume, since most of the companies use these languages.
  2. QT Open Source -An open source based on object-based programming, QT allows you to create widgets and applications for Symbian devices and desktop. This is a great program used in most of the industries and has many classes which you can only learn by frequent practicing.
  3. Although many companies, when hiring you as an intern, teach you the basics of the specific language they use, but knowing it beforehand can be of great help to you. It helps you be ahead of other interns in the company and you can easily secure a project at an early stage.
  4. Web development-This can be of great help to you to design websites and is always fun to play around. Not only does it add weight to your resume, but you can always design websites if you come up with some good money making ideas.

Hardware Related

Hardware is an interesting subject provided you love to do it. In India, most of the companies that come for placements in colleges are software or IT-oriented. Hardware related jobs are hard to find. If you do wish to follow, then -

  1. Microprocessors or mini computers -Various microprocessors such as Arduino, Raspberry - Pi, MSP430 Launchpad etc. allow you to write your programs and play around with hardware. You can design heaps of unique projects around with these and can do innovative things. They are fun to learn, and the more you practice, the better you become.
  2. Designing PCBs -There are plenty of PCB designing software that lets you design your own circuits. You can learn these in depth and print your own PCBs. Another area that adds weight to your resume. Having a combination of this and the previous one is a great approach towards hardware.
  3. AutoCAD -You might wonder why AutoCAD. AutoCAD comes in handy when you are finalizing a project that you have undertaken. It is basically used to develop consumer-end products. This is primarily used in Laser-cutting, 3-D Printing and other such techniques which can save your pain of going to someone else to design the housing for your circuits and elements.

There are plenty of other different industry related courses that you can opt for depending on the kind of field you wish to be in. Try to research the popular software or languages used by industries and choose according to your interests. Programming is always required so sharpening it to the next level would be beneficial for you.

Telecommunication uses various approaches & if you plan to go there, you can always jump on the internet and research. For more information, you can talk to the Career Experts at CareerGuide. Hope this helps you!
