1. COMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING
Communications Engineering is about the sending and receiving of signals especially by means of electrical or electroacoustic devices and electromagnetic waves. Communications engineering classes are typically offered for those seeking a graduate certificate in this field. It is an advanced course of the Major ECE. Students who apply for this course will be trained in programs in the fields of voice, data, or visual communications. The core program of this course deals with designing, maintaining and operating communication systems. Students who were comfortable with Mathematics playing an integral role on their Engineering course can apply to this course as it also features calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. A few important subjects associated with the course are Transmission noise, Fourier transform, VoIP systems, Sampling theorems, Probability theory and RFID systems. This course contains a lot of heavy levels technical understanding and students should be able to keep up with the managerial and technical direction. For those interested in designing and modifying projects and for students who enjoy writing reports and interpreting data, this course is for you. A Communication Engineer holds a steady future in hand with his career pay
2. AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS
An Automotive electronics degree can include short courses covering such topics as computer-controlled electronics systems, automotive circuitry, electromagnetic considerations or specific automotive models. These are the most common concepts found in automotive electronics courses. This course introduces the student to the automotive industry including automotive history, safety practices, shop equipment and tools, vehicle subsystems, service publications, fasteners, professional responsibilities, and automotive maintenance. Emphasis is on Automobile construction, major components, basic systems and their repair and maintenance.
A few core subjects of the course include Automotive technology basics, Vehicular electronic design, Principles of electromagnetic interference, Using diagnostic tools and software and Computer-controlled automotive components. The objective of this course is to prepare students for entry-level employment. By the end of this course, the student should have a basic knowledge of the automotive industry including automotive history, safety practices, shop equipment and tools, vehicle subsystems, service publications, fasteners, professional responsibilities, and automotive maintenance. Emphasis is on Automobile construction, major components, basic systems and their repair and maintenance. If you know the above protocols and tools automotive companies will welcome you with arms wide open. This degree is one of the best options an ECE student can choose to stabilize their future and fixating their career on a high pedestal. For graduates keen on wanting immediate promotions, steady and dedicated work in this job will help them to move on to other positions after 10 years in this career.
This course introduces Engineering students (Juniors and Seniors) to the field of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The course has two components: Formal lectures and Projects. Students are asked to read and present a variety of current journal papers to the class and lead a discussion on the various works. They will also receive a set of formal lectures introducing them to the field of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The material covered includes nanofabrication technology, the interdisciplinary nature of nanotechnology and nanoscience (including areas of chemistry, material science, physics, and molecular biology), examples of nanoscience phenomena, and applications. Nanotechnology is a research-oriented field and there won’t be many companies who will take a graduate for campus placement. Those who are really into science and research can opt for the course while also be willing to do their masters in Nanotechnology. For the confused student who is unsure of the potential for a degree in Nanotechnology, need not fear! The field has a huge scope in the upcoming generations as it is the third highest booming field right after IT and Internet. For students who are wondering of career options, one can find jobs such as nanotechnologists; specialists or scientists. The areas where a nanotechnologist can seek employment include biotechnology, agriculture, food, genetics, space research, medicine and so on. Job opportunities are also available in National Physical Laboratory, Indian Institute of Astrophysics etc. Hence, this makes Nanotechnology a very divergent but prospective course.
4. SENSOR SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY
One of the benefits of graduating as an ECE student is the wide range of courses that are offered to them on a platter. It is recommended for a student to pursue higher education as specialization in a particular subject will not only earn them more salary, but it will also give them an advantage during interviews. Higher studies will make the Graduate learn in depth knowledge of the subject. Sensor System Technology mainly targets students of Environmental and Engineering Science students and is one of the best options out there for an Engineering student. The course covers a wide range of topics such as physical, optical and chemical sensors and their applications as well as control, bus systems, programming, micro controllers, pattern recognition and signal processing. Emphasis is placed on a theoretical natural sciences background as well as on technologies. Course content includes the complete range of sensor systems topics: advanced natural sciences for sensor development, electronics, signal processing, control systems, pattern recognition and communication. Students can choose their own specialisation direction and gain insight into the application of those smart systems in the health, energy or another high tech sector. The core subjects of the curriculum includes a wide range of topics related to sensor technology, including biology, chemistry, electronics, mathematics and computer programming. Coming to employment, graduates can find jobs in areas like applied Computer Science or Control Engineering. The average salary for a graduate who has specialised in Sensor Systems is Rs. 10,00,000. However, job opportunities are frequently on the market in foreign countries than in India.
5. VLSI DESIGN
Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) Circuit Design is the process of designing a large computer chip, using computer-aided design tools on a workstation or a personal computer. The course demands to learn the principles of VLSI design, designing and fabricating the state-of-the-art VLSI chips, understanding the complete design flow and expertise to design CMOS chips for industrial requirements. Students are exposed to various design software in this programme. They will learn to design, simulate, implement and test complex digital systems using FPGAs. The curriculum focuses on employing hierarchical design methods and understanding the design issues at the various levels of hierarchy. In digital design, you can create fast and powerful circuits in smaller and smaller devices. Students will learn to create Systems-on-a-chip (SoCs). Network processor chips and wireless radio chips are examples of SoCs. Reconfigurable Computing is another major discipline in VLSI Design. A few career prospects for VLSI graduates are listed below.
ASIC frontend designer
FPGA frontend designer
ASIC physical design engineer
AMS (Analog Mixed Signal) designer
