Electrical Engineering At A Glance
Have you heard of these names –Alexander Graham Bell (inventor of Telephone), Nikola Tesla(Father of Radio) N.R. Narayana Murthy(co-founder of Infosys), Nandan Nilekeni (co-founder of Infosys), Raghuram Govinda Rajan ( 23rd Governor of the Reserve Bank of India), Manohar Parrikar ( Defence Minister of India & Ex.Chief Minister of Goa), ? Yeah, You are right, They are famous but give a second thought. Apart from being famous they also has a common resemblance i.e., they all are electrical engineers.
Electrical Engineering is one of the world’s largest sought out field in the Engineering Stream. The statistics reveal that more than 25% of the jobs in engineering field are for electrical engineers only. Many countries are experiencing a shortage of trained, knowledgeable Electrical Engineers, so a whole world full of opportunities is available for talented, capable and young electrical engineers. We can’t even imagine a world without electricity and electrical appliance. Electrical engineers are required in areas such as electric power industry which generates, transmits, and distributes power to rural as well as urban areas; manufacturers of electrical as well as electronic, medical or in transportation sector . They are also in great demand in the infrastructure development viz., SEZ projects, building construction etc. They are required to understand the need of the customer, and should be able to design accordingly. Once the design is approved the next process of development starts and after that the test of the electrical equipment is done which ends with its successful implementation. Not only this, maintenance of the product also requires trained engineers. In a nutshell it can be said that a well trained electrical engineer can make a career as a designer or researcher or can make a career in various manufacturing industries or can also work as an analyst or in the maintenance domain.
Employment opportunities exist in both the public and the private sector. In the public sector, you can work in the NATIONAL THERMAL POWER PLANT – NTPC, ISRO, BHEL, DRDO, SAI, BEL (For applying these core jobs in government sector candidate need the GATE score along with the 60% aggregate in academics. Age limit for these companies is 21 – 28 years. And recruitment process for these companies is written test & final interview) In the private sector, on the other hand you can secure a job in Aditya Birla Group, Hindustan Lever Network, Videocon Group and various other sectors such as communications, IT companies, aviation sector, biomedical electronics, manufacturer of household appliances, railways, wiring industries, etc.
