There are many myths about Electronics Engineering. I myself coming from this background can tell that most people perceive it as an entirely different thing from what it really is. Let me explain them here.

  1. Electronics Engineers repair electronics devices

    Most times when you are the only Electronics Engineer in the family, your family members expect you to repair the electronics items at home - TV, Fridge, Washing Machine, Radio, Computer- there are so many. But that is not what electronics engineers do. They work on different things from designing to testing to software and other tools. Most of their time goes in to the calculations and analysis of the theories.





There are so many other people who do the repair of electronics items. There are professionals who do the full time repair job. Please do not expect it from an electronics engineers.

2. You need to have good knowledge of electronic devices to study electronics engineering


Again people make mistake by comparing electronics engineering with electronics devices. The truth is at the time of admission you need to have basic knowldge of science and maths. And some curiosity about the electronics world. It is during your engineering education that you will develop that curiosity in to fascination. So relax. You don't have to be a master straight away.

3. Electronics Engineering is pretty much same as Electrical Engineering

That's what people told me at the time of admission. There's not much of the difference they said. But there is. As an electrical Engineer, you don't only work on electrical machinery but also on the problems of generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. It is concerned about electricity.

Electrical got you stumped
But Electronics Engineering is different. You work on digital devices most times. The work is on transistors and other such devices. The work of an electronics engineer is closely associated with the programming, desigining and fabricating the electronics items.
