What is Telecommunication and Electronics Engineering?

Telecommunication and Electronics Engineering, or ‘Telecoms Engineering’, is an engineering discipline that brings together all electrical engineering disciplines including Computer Engineering with Systems Engineering to enhance telecommunication systems. The work ranges from basic circuit design to strategic mass developments. A telecommunication engineer is responsible for designing and overseeing the installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities, such as complex electronic switching systems, copper wire telephone facilities, fiber optics cabling, IP data systems, terrestrial radio link systems for conventional communications and process information. Telecommunication Engineering also overlaps heavily with Broadcast Engineering.

Telecommunication is a diverse field of engineering which is connected to electronics, civil, structural, and electrical engineering. Ultimately, telecom engineers are responsible for providing the method for customers to have telephone and high-speed data services. It helps people who are closely working in political and social fields, as well accounting and project management.

Qualifications

Candidates have to pass 10th class with 50% aggregate marks if they want to earn a diploma course. But for a degree course one needs to pass 12th class in science stream, with 50% aggregate marks. The compulsory subjects are physics, math and chemistry.

Candidates have to appear for the entrance exam held by various boards and universities. If the candidate scores the required marks, she/he will be enrolled in that university.

Academic Program

As mentioned above, the degree course is of four years and comprises eight semesters. It comes with various subjects that are of importance to the field. The core subjects are electrical circuits, electronics, digital signal, microprocessors and embedded systems, optical systems, electromagnets, communication systems, signals and systems, and VLSI. The other subjects are applied math, chemistry, physics, computer programming, basic electrical and electronic engineering, and others.

Subjects get changed according to the semesters.
