Careers in Electrical Engineering: Dr. Sandeep Goyat, Assistant Professor, EE, GNIOT
Students aspiring to become an Electrical Engineer always have major queries like what should be their career path and what are the career options after completing B.Tech in Electrical Engineering. Becoming an electrical engineer requires training, commitment, and curiosity. Aspiring students should have curious questions like why we can’t imagine a world without electricity, how a flat screen television manages to be energy efficient or how an electrical system manages to use so much electricity without blowing a fuse and much more. Basically, an Electrical engineer must have passion for the stream, then only he/she can get successful in the field.
Common queries of aspiring engineers are-
What level of degree should I get to maximize my income?
What concentration should I learn to obtain my dream career?
Do I have to join an engineering firm or can I work on my own?
Read the full article to get answers to all these queries; to know about the career path of an electrical engineer, career options and much more.
The article has been written by Dr. Sandeep Goyat who is Assistant Professor, Electrical Engineering Department at GNIOT.
Electrical Engineering Careers Basics
Electrical engineers use physics, electronics and electromagnetism to design devices that are powered by or produce electricity. Electrical engineers work on anything from small pocket devices to large aircraft electrical systems. Engineers test prototypes and evaluate and improve systems. Nearly every industry has a place for an electrical engineer, including government, transportation, communications, technology, and utilities.
Most electrical engineers work in an office or lab setting, but on-site projects and short-term assignments are common.
Electrical Engineering in-depth
Electrical engineers are more than just system designers and developers. Engineers are involved in projects from conceptualization to maintenance. Engineers handle practicalities by conducting feasibility studies and cost analyses. Because of their multifaceted duties, electrical engineers sometimes specialize in project management, research and development or consultancy. Because of the wide range of industries using electrical engineers, many engineers specialize in sub-discipline of electrical engineering. Common sub-disciplines include:
Depending on background and expertise, engineering projects can include projects such as developing telecommunication systems, lighting and wiring buildings or designing household appliances. To progress in this rapidly changing field, engineers must remain abreast of current trends.
Most electrical engineers must have a bachelor’s degree or even a master’s degree in electrical engineering from a university accredited by the All India Council for Technical Education(AICTE). Additional certification or specialization can help electrical engineers progress further in specialized career fields.
Career Growth and Prospects
Electrical engineering jobs are expected to grow at a slower-than-average pace from 2012 to 2022, so picking the right electrical engineering degree is crucial. Engineers who keep up-to-date with industry trends will have an advantage over the competition. Electrical engineering is shifting toward computer systems design and away from traditional manufacturing. Electrical engineers work to build powerful electronics that use computer, cellular and GPS technologies.
Steps for becoming an Electrical Engineer
Get a bachelor’s degree or higher
Take the fundamentals of engineering exam
Land an entry-level job and gain experience
Take professional engineer exam
Choosing the right academic path
Career Goal And/Or Educational Needs
I want to be able to work full-time while earning my degree.
I want to see if I enjoy science and math before pursuing a lengthy degree plan.
I want to earn my degree on my own schedule.
I want to explore cutting-edge research and programs.

Questions related to GNIOT
How are placements in GNIOT, Greater Noida currently?
dear aspirant,if you want to take admission in private colleges in greater noida then GL bajaj and galgotias both are top Delhi NCR college.they both have very good placement records.
Both are one of the largest companies visiting record in delhi NCR .
So GNIOT is not better then galgotias an GL bajaja in terms of placement.
hope this will help.
I got 5606 rank in uptu ,88.32 Percentile in jee And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Well brother, I can understand your situation. I know you have worked hard for JEE mains but I believe with 88.32%ile in CRL category, you won't be getting decent college which I can recommend you.
Though with home state quota, there might be an increased chance of your's getting a seat but with such a rank it is very hard to get.
So, I would suggest you to prefer state engineering colleges. Some state eng. colleges are way better than even mediocre ranked NIT.
Also, I would recommend you to do take part in JoSAA and go to through all the round even the spot round. May be, some good fortune can turn your destiny.
Or the better recommendation can be
To prefer Thapur. It is one of the older colleges in education industry with better Alumni than many of the NIT's.
I got 5606 rank in uptu . And 92 %in boards will I get cse branch in good college?
Congratulations on getting such a good rank. Yes, you have a fair chance of getting a good college. Unfortunately you will not be able to get a government college if you belong to general category but you are eligible to get admission in JSS Noida, which is the best private college affiliated to AKTU. You might get CSE here otherwise you are sure to get CSE in AKG, KIET and ABESEC. I hope this information was helpful!
I wish you all the very best!
How in placement in IT JOBS IN GNIOT
The college placement for IT students is decent, if not good. There have been mixed reviews regarding the placements. Some of the top companies in the IT industry such as Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, HCL and Genpact come for hiring. However, the avg. salary package is between 2 lakhs to 6 lakhs per annum. Your salary package also depends on how you express and present yourself during the placements. If you are an outstanding student and someone who will add value to the company, you might be offered even a higher pay package than six lakhs per annum.
I hope this has answered your query and all the best!
