Career and Scope

Nowadays, we all are surrounded by the electrical devices. We have been so used to all those devices, that it is very difficult for us to survive a day without them. But, have we ever wondered how all those devices work and who are the one behind them? Well the obvious answer will be a 'NO'. Behind all those devices are the electrical engineers who are responsible for everything, from building them to maintaining them. Electrical Engineers work with everything which is around us from switch boards to computers.

An engineer holding this degree can apply for jobs in various sectors. Some of the sectors are automotive, aerospace, energy, IT and telecommunications. Electrical engineers are highly employable and can get involved with different organizations too.
