Dear aspirant


Thank you very much for contacting counsellors at Mera career guide. You have reached the right platform to seek advice and i am happy to solve your query today. Before we go into the subject, please let me introduce myself. I am Gomathi and I am into the counselling profession for over 23 years now. I am also the Managing Director of GV Counselling group based in Bangalore and recently established in chennai too. I specialise in guidance and counselling on education and career zones. Lets move into your query now.

Becoming a researcher? Great aspiration and ambition. A researcher is a highly prestigious role and one of the biggest academic and professional achievement. A researcher innovates new things and also explore old things to innovate it into new functions. A research is done by either a professor or a senior corporate person. A Professor is someone who has a PhD and works at colleges and universities to do both teaching and research. A senior corporate electronic engineer can also perform research at his company. If you dont want to do teaching, you can work at corporates. If you love teaching, you can choose to work at colleges and universities. To become a researcher in electronics you have two routes to take.

One is studying a MSc/ Mtech or a ME in Electronics engineering: WIth a Masters degree you can work for companies like Intel, Qualcomm, Microsoft at their electronic research departments. You also have good options with central govt jobs in India like the Baba Atomic research centre, ISRO, IISC Bangalore and many more. WIth a Masters degree you can work at the national research laboratories.

Alternatively you can also go to the second option, to do a PhD in Electronic engineering. This will also qualify you for posts as a researcher in colleges/ universities, big blue chip companies or the MNC's, and central govertment and state government research labs. India is well grown in electronic engineering and you have high scope. You can also work at manufacturing companies like Godrej, Car manufacturing companies like Ford, Hyundai, and two wheeler companies like TVS, Hero honda at their electronics research division. In case your focus is to do a phD and work at universities then you should have completed a Masters and then written UGC-NET, GATE scores for pHd admission.
