After Completing their ITI diploma they can work as  Electrician, Wireman, Lineman, Repair expert in Municipal Corporations, Armed Forces, State-level electricity boards, PWDs, PSUs, etc.

2). Bachelor Degree Route

Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech)/Bachelor of Engineering ( B.E.)/Bachelor Of Science (B.Sc) in Electronics and Communication Engineering is a program/degree of undergraduate level whose duration is four years And BSC is 3 years only. This branch of Engineering is very prominent and also provides high placement packages if one is Graduating from Government Institution. A candidate must be passed class 10+2  from science stream with subjects Mathematics, physics and chemistry as the core, are eligible for this undergraduate course. Admission in Institutions / Colleges is mostly done through an entrance examination but in some colleges, there is also a merit-based system.

This is further subdivided into two Routes : 

Private College Route.
Government / public college Route.

  • Private College Route

The average fees of B.Tech/B.E/B.Sc in Electronics Engineering from private colleges varies from 4 Lacs – 6 Lacs. But the main demerit of pursuing a bachelor of engineering in Electronics and Communication Engineering is that these Colleges don’t provide good placements at all. Most of the time, Candidates have to do everything at their contacts.

  • Government College Route

The average fees of b.tech in an Electronics Engineering from public/ Government colleges start from 3 Lacs – 5 Lacs (without hostel charges). For taking admission in government colleges or iits, it’s mandatory to clear JEE Mains followed By JEE Advanced Examination. Then only, candidates can get Admission in such Institutions.

After clearing the exam of JEE MAINS and ADVANCE, Candidates/Applicants get admission in respective IITs. Like IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay, IIT BHU, IIT Roorkee, etc.

Entrance Examinations

  1. JEE Mains
  2. JEE Advanced

JEE Mains is followed by the JEE Advance Entrance exam which is conducted by or under the control of Indian Institutes of technologies.

Private Colleges offer M.Tech/M.Sc/MEE without Entrance Exams

Yes, some of the private colleges are offering M.Tech/M.Sc/M.E.E without any entrance exam. But it is not worth doing a thing, Masters without having a valid gate score that comes from clearing gate examination.

It must be known to all candidates and Applicants who would like to pursue their masters from private colleges so that they easily get their degree. Yeah surely they can get their degree easily without so much hard work but their degree would not be of worth. 

So they should appear for the Examination of GATE  and a valid Appceptable Gate Score to get good placements. The second thing is that the Average required fees of Private Colleges are generally high in both B.tech and M.Tech / M.Sc / MEE  or any other equivalent degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering as compared to the public or government college.
