Dear student,

If you have a keen interest in electronics and communication systems, their development and repair, ECE degree is what you should take up. A large amount of emphasis is given to science and applied mathematics in order to solve problems in the field of communication. Electronic communications engineers engage in research, design, development and testing of the electronic equipment used in various communications systems. It is due to electrical engineers that we enjoy such modern communication devices as cellular telephones, radios and television. 

Depending on which college you pursue your engineering from, packages and placements will differ in each case. Popular government institutes like IITs and NITs attract big companies at the time of placements and offer handsome packages to students. However, the average starting salary for an electronics and communications engineer is Rs. 4 lac per annum.
