This and many more like the eligibility, course curriculum and colleges offering this course in India I will discuss with you. Below is a hit point I will be focusing on

What is Electronics & Communication Engineering?

Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) involves researching, designing, developing and testing electronic equipment used in various systems. EC engineers also conceptualize and oversee the manufacturing of communications and broadcast systems.
This stream of engineering deals with analog transmission, basic electronics, microprocessors, solid-state devices, digital and analog communication, analog integrated circuits, microwave engineering, satellite communication, antennae, and wave progression. It also deals with the manufacturing of electronic devices, circuits, and communications equipment.
In India, EC Engineering is offered by various colleges at the UG as well as PG level leading to BTech (4 years) and MTech (2 years) degrees respectively.

Required Skillset for Electronics & Communication Engineering

To be able to pursue EC Engineering, candidates must possess the following set of skills:

TeamworkA methodical mind
Attention to detailAptitude for Mathematics
InnovationTime management
CommunicationProject management
Strong IT skillsInter-personal skills

Electronics & Communication Engineering: Eligibility Criteria

The basic eligibility requirement to pursue an EC Engineering program at the UG and PG level is:

  • Undergraduate (UG): Candidates must have qualified 10+2 examination from a recognized board with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as their main subjects. Besides this, students must also have secured minimum aggregate marks of 60% in the above subjects combined.
  • Postgraduate (PG): Candidates must have completed a BTech degree in the same specialization with a passing percentage in aggregate of the subjects studied at the degree level.

Course Curriculum for Electronics & Communication Engineering

ECE is a four-year-long course program spread over 8 semesters. Take a look at the semester-wise course curriculum for ECE below. Please note that the syllabus/course curriculum may vary from college to college.

Difference between Electronics Engineering and EC Engineering


Electronics Engineering

Electronics and Communication Engineering

Primary focus

Electronic circuit behavior, design, analysis in the context of various application areas like power electronics, VLSI, digital electronics, consumer electronics

Signal processing and mathematical aspect, electronics engineering aspect


Broad field

Broad field with focus on one aspect of electronics engineering

Course duration

Four-year course

Four-year course

Degree obtained

B.Tech. in Electronics Engineering

B.Tech. in EC Engineering

The two courses share several common subjects (both being electronics-based), but the ECE course is more communication-oriented and focused, so much so that it was divided into a separate field.

I hope you are no more confused having read up to this point. You can also share this article with your friends on social media sure it will be helpful to them as well.
