Electronic Engineering is a field closely related to electrical engineering. It includes the study of electrical components to design electrical circuits, devices etc. Electronic engineering is a large field of study. It includes various subfields i.e. Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electromagnetics, Software Development.
In the USA, there is a large scope for electronic engineers. There are many well-recognized universities in the USA offering degrees in electronic engineering, for example, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford University, University of California.
Getting a degree in Electronic Engineering:
The typical length for engineering bachelor degrees us usually three to four years. After graduation engineers can also choose postgraduate degrees (Ph.D., MSc, Engineering Doctorate etc.) if they are interested. There are many industries electronic engineers can look forward to for employment for example Telecommunications, IT, Electronic component manufacturing etc.
In the USA the highest concentration of electronic engineering graduates is in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta. Bachelor degree is the most common degree awarded to students. The most common career choice for graduates includes software developers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, miscellaneous managers. Making the right career choice is crucial in order to have a good pay and self-satisfaction, so graduates should choose carefully.
