1)Tell us in brief about your journey of getting admission into Electronics Engineering course.
The process was the usual one of appearing for MHTCET exam after Std. 12th. Pursuing Electronics Engineering was my first choice and the score being good, I got admitted to a good college.
2)What is the difference between Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering? Which degree is better recognized in the Industry?
Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering sound similar but are very different. Electronics engineering is basically related with the digital data processing which results into the PLC SCADA programming. Electrical engineering relates to the problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission from power house to the load. It also deals with electrical appliances and their control. Both these degrees are well recognized in core industries.
3)How are the placements and range of pay scale for a fresher?
The placements in this industry are good. Pay scale for a fresher starts from Rs.3.00 lacs p.a.

One can pursue VLSI Design, Red Hat certification courses as value addition. Also, interning in a good organisation acts as the icing on the cake as it provides real time exposure to the students.
6) What are the skills required to excel in the field of Electronic Engineering?
One needs good knowledge of PLC , Digital data processing. Plus good communication skills, commercial awareness, problem-solving skills, ability to work independently are a must.
7) Provide any other valuable specific information for the students who want to pursue a career in the above field.
Specialisation is the need of the hour and hence I would advise students to do Masters in India by appearing for GATE exam or pursue the same abroad.
