Electrical engineering is an exploding field. Job prospects for electrical engineers are quite good. Electrical engineers are required to develop, design, manufacture, test, evaluate, market, sell and manage electrical and electronic systems.
In India, fresh graduates in electrical engineering can find jobs both in public and private sector. However private companies provide good salary in comparison to the government companies. Among the largest employers of electrical engineers are computer, telecommunications and consumer electronics companies. One can also choose to opt for research work in this field by joining research labs and institutes. Teaching profession is also rewarding in an engineering college/university as a full time or part time lecturer/professor.
There are four well defined branches of electrical engineering: power, communications, electronics, and control systems. Electrical engineers who specialize in power are involved in the generating of, transmission, distribution and application of power from such sources as water, fossil fuel, nuclear, and solar energy. Electrical engineers specializing in communications are involved in equipment engineering, circuit transmissions, traffic plant and acoustical engineering. This branch of engineering designs systems that receive, transmit and deliver information into audio and video forms. Electronics engineers develop and implement computer systems and enhance electronic aids like heart monitors. Those with a specialization in control systems design such products as automatic regulators, guidance systems and robotics controls.
