Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering vs Electronics & Electrical Engineering


In the zone
Will be doing it from a local college. I like Electrical stuff: power supplies, power phases, motors etc, but many people recommend the ET. Btw, will telecommunications make any difference versus communications?

I love computer hardware (not so much the software side, but am okay with it); what would be the better line to go for if I want to get into R&D for computer hardware: designing motherboards etc?

Future prospects? Job opportunities? Value of the degree (EC vs ET)? Salaries?

Look at the syllabus of the streams to know the difference.

India is not a electronics hardware development hub. You will see jobs for verification and testing. Consult with others who are studying same to know about the job opportunities.

Salary wise you can expect ~20k less per annum compared to CS or IT. It's the average figure from campus placements. If you are good, you can earn more than CS. IT average.
