Major role of government engineers at higher level is to develop policy and standard for the profession and general public. This way, electronics and communication engineers can have positive impact on the development of society.

Education

Shape the future of electronics engineering and prepare the next generation of professionals.

For those interested in teaching, the best option will be the involvement in academia. Knowledge learnt should be passed on to next generation of engineers. Therefore, electronics and communication engineers can indulge in academic area preparing next generation engineers with constant amendment of courses. This may require advanced degree with doctoral in some cases. Engineering educators write grants to obtain research funding and work with graduate students to conduct research aimed at developing advancements in the field of engineering. At many academic institutions, publishing research findings and obtaining grant funding for your academic institution are key elements to success. Additionally, facilitating student learning and achieving recognition as a top performing teacher help make this a fulfilling career choice.
                    
Manufacturing

Use your engineering knowledge and skills to bring innovation to industry for more successful and cost-effective operations, processes, and products.

Electronics engineers have options to work in diverse settings including manufacturing, technology, pharmaceuticals, public facilities and utilities, and many others producing goods and catering services. They are responsible for maintaining, troubleshooting, and repairing electronic manufacturing equipment in factories or other industrial facilities. An in-depth knowledge of electronics and electrical equipment is necessary for this job and can be acquired through formal education. They install electronic equipment using various power tools and machinery, including drill presses, pipe threaders, grinders, hoists, measuring devices, and testing equipment. They inspect and maintain existing equipment using similar tools, such as voltmeters and PC-based diagnostic software. This may require analysis and troubleshooting of complex problems.
                    
Telecommunication

Get Himal, Pahad and Terai Connected. Devise efficient and economic communication network.

Telecommunication is an area where most Electronics and Communication Engineers dream to be. In area of traditional and modern telephony, engineers design and install equipment used for transmitting wired phone, cellular, cable and broadband data. Their day-to-day responsibilities include working with copper or fiber optic cabling, complex networks and switching systems. Telecommunications engineers may be employed by wired and wireless telecommunications companies, engineering consulting firms or government agencies.

Automation and Control

Get automated systems Designed, programmed, simulated and tested.

Another area of career options for electronic engineers is automation and control. This field of automation involves the creation and application of technology to monitor or control the production and delivery of products and services. Automation engineers design, program, simulate and test automated machinery and processes in order to complete exact tasks. They are employed in industries such as car manufacturing or food processing plants, where robots or machines perform specific functions. Automation engineers are responsible for design specifications and other detailed documentation of their creations.
Software

Identify, design and implement computer based solutions for a wide variety of projects and an array of clients.


In today’s digital world, programming is one of the greatest assets. Electronics engineers are allured in the software industries as well. Responsibilities of software engineers include determination of operational feasibility by evaluating analysis, problem definition, requirements, solution development, and proposed solutions. They document and demonstrate solutions by developing documentation, flowcharts, layouts, diagrams, charts, code comments and clear code. They prepare and deploy solutions by determining and designing system specifications, standards, and programming. Competent software engineers  update themselves with job knowledge by studying state-of-the-art development tools, programming techniques, and computing equipment; participating in educational opportunities; reading professional publications; maintaining personal networks; participating in professional organizations.

Networking

Make sure that IT Infrastructure of the organization are secured and available 24x7.

Those interested in networking become network analysts or administrator. Their primary duties include maintaining the integrity and security of a company’s network and the systems connected to it. A computer networking specialist must have extensive knowledge of network connectivity, protocols, network security devices, network types, including wireless, fiber optic or copper wire, and common operating systems, such as Windows and UNIX. In an entry-level capacity, computer networking specialists could be responsible for responding to troubleshooting calls and e-mails from users of the network. They need to be able to diagnose and offer repair instructions remotely, as well as in person. In an advanced role as an analyst or administrator, computer networking specialists often monitor network access for bottlenecks, security threats or problems with connectivity. They might also configure and maintain security devices to ensure the safety of company software, systems and data.
