It all depends on what you are interested in and you will decide which branch is best for you.
Let’s first understand the differences between these engineering branches. Both Electrical Engineering & Electronics and Communication engineering make up the core engineering branch. Electrical engineering focuses on the power system, electrical machines and power electronics. It also covers circuit theory and network theory. ECE focuses on analog and digital electronics, digital communications, analog & wireless, wave theory, signal and system, and microprocessors. Some subjects, such as control system, measurements and instruments, are shared by both EE AND ECE.
For electrical engineering, you need to have a solid mathematical background. If you ask the question from a job perspective, Let me clarify. Both electronics and communication engineers as well as electrical engineers have enormous job opportunities in the private and public sectors. An advantage for an electrical engineer is the large number of communication and electronics engineers working in the public sector. INDIA has a large number of PSUs working in the power and energy sector. ECE students may also be eligible for jobs in the govt. Sectors like ISRO, BEL and ISRO.
ESE can be taken by both electronic and communication engineers. This will allow them to get good administrative jobs in Indian railways, IOFS and CEA. ESE vacancies are similar in both electrical and electronics and communications engineering.
UPSC CSE exams are open to both communication and electrical engineers. UPSC CSE Examination is only available for electrical engineering.
You can now decide which branch is best for you.
