What things are needed to be a successful electronics engineer?

Learn how to code.


If you plan to apply for a job on campus, I recommend that you learn code.

These are my college’s placement statistics for 2017-18

In terms of placements, Computer and I.T are clear winners. This trend is common across most engineering colleges in India.

I’m not trying to discourage or scare you. I am simply stating the facts. You will find placement season easier and less stressful if you get started earlier. Here are some tips to help you get started.

  1. Start by learning a programming language if you don’t have any prior experience. Most companies prefer C++. To be considered, you must be fluent in at least one language. You should be able convert logic into computer programs.
  2. Once you have a solid foundation, it is time to start learning Data Structures & Algorithms. These will allow you to optimize your solutions, and create efficient programs. Many companies prefer applicants who begin with a simple solution and then build on it.
  3. Other subjects are less important (relatively), such as Operating Systems and System Design patterns. If you don’t have the time, they are best left unaddressed.
  4. Interviews for these companies are very different from conventional interviews. After understanding the question, most companies expect you can write clean code on paper. GeeksforGeeks
  1. This website is a great resource to help you prepare for these interviews. This website has everything you need to get these interviews.

The ideal time to begin planning would be in the middle of your second year. It will be hard, I’m sure. There will be no correlation between your Electronics syllabus and the material you have studied for these interviews. It will all be worth it, I promise.

If you really are interested in Electronics, and wish to pursue a career in this area, I recommend that you take up higher education. Because the opportunities for employment at the undergraduate level are limited and not well-paid (salary matters). Higher education would also open up more opportunities for teaching and research.

We hope you find this helpful.
