- COLLEGES IN ABROAD
- ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Electrical and Electronics Engineers design, maintain and develop electrical control systems and equipment.
They work keeping in view economy and precision of their methodology to build reliable systems that find place across various domains including transportation, telecommunications, power generation, signal transmission and distribution and scientific research.
Electrical Engineers concern themselves with developing circuits and generating, distributing and using electrical energy. Whereas,
Electronics engineers are concerned about the behaviour of these circuits and manipulating them to work automatically. The applications of electrical/ electronic engineering are quite diverse ranging from houses to commercial offices to industries. With the boom in the electronics sector in India, aspirants looking for a specialization in this branch of engineering are likely to have extremely good future prospects.
