To become an electrical engineer, it is necessary to be a graduate (BE) or a diploma holder in electrical engineering.
Here the stress is on a deep understanding of electrical and electronic networks and devices, electromagnetic field theory, electrical energy converters, electrical energy distribution systems etc. At the ME or postgraduate level, specialization in control and instrumentation, electronics and communication, power apparatus and systems, etc. is done.
Electrical engineers find jobs in power plants, whether atomic, hydel or thermal power plants. They get jobs in public and private sector industries such as railways, civil aviation, and all types of manufacturing plants. They can also get into teaching in India or abroad or continue with research in laboratories.
