What are some of the dream jobs for an electrical engineer?

Almost any EE sector can provide a dream job for an electrical engineer.

You can work in communications, devising equipment and antennas for ever longer distances and ever clearer signals, and ever greater information density. Or in components, find ways to intensify miniaturization and increase reliability and durability, and produce components at increasingly lower costs. Or in control systems, making controls more multidimensional and faster and working with smaller signals, and increasing the capacity of robotics.

And so on, in all areas. What can you do as an electric motor

Almost any EE sector can provide a dream job for an electrical engineer.

You can work in communications, devising equipment and antennas for ever longer distances and ever clearer signals, and ever greater information density. Or in components, find ways to intensify miniaturization and increase reliability and durability, and produce components at increasingly lower costs. Or in control systems, making controls more multidimensional and faster and working with smaller signals, and increasing the capacity of robotics.

And so on, in all areas. What you can do as an electrical engineer is find ways to do something better, faster, more capable, and with capabilities that weren't available before. It's a dream job when you're not just doing one more of the same, varied in just a few specs or dimensions, you're doing something that transcends the limits reached by previous engineers.

Think of the aerospace industry. You can be a key part in helping humanity reach another world. Or provide transportation or even weaponry that goes far beyond what has been achieved before.

I have a friend who, with two other guys, designed the original multi-channel controls that ensure stable jet engine operation. That has become the standard and is now used in all jet engines in the world. Without their concepts and design, air travel would have stalled at an earlier stage and would be infinitely more dangerous. That is a dream come true. You can live a long time with such an achievement.

In short, find a job in any area of ​​EE that interests you. Obviously you are going to start at a low level, doing a simpler and more routine job. But get it right and turn every aspect of your job into a dream job, surpassing what you were asked to do and achieving unexpected levels of profitability, performance, reliability, capacity, and service life. And with each achievement, you will be placed on a new assignment, with even higher expectations and consequently higher dreams that you can create and fulfill.

That is the beauty of engineering. It is a dream profession. It allows vision, imagination and innovation on par with any artistic activity. As an engineer, you can remake the world. That is a dream come true.

I can partially answer for that.

Are there companies like Apple, Google for Electrical Engineering?
Yes, there are General Motors, General Electric, Siemens, ABB ..... and Many companies.

In reality, they are too different to claim that one is necessarily better than the other.

Although both degrees have the term "engineering" and have some of the same courses, the prospects after graduation are quite different.

Mechanical Engineering is essentially the "default" engineering specialty. This means that if someone just wants a generic engineer, they will probably include "Mechanical Engineering" as one of the desired titles. Jobs that require a generic engineer include the following

  1. Project Manager / Engineer

In reality, they are too different to claim that one is necessarily better than the other.

Although both degrees have the term "engineering" and have some of the same courses, the prospects after graduation are quite different.

Mechanical Engineering is essentially the "default" engineering specialty. This means that if someone just wants a generic engineer, they will probably include "Mechanical Engineering" as one of the desired titles. Jobs that require a generic engineer include the following

  1. Project Manager / Engineer
    1. My good friend Claudette does this and is reasonably happy. Surprisingly, she does very little engineering and the position is managerial / organizational in nature.
  2. Civil engineer (some positions)
  3. field service engineer
    1. Most of the ESF I met at Baker Hughes were mechanical engineers. For some reason, they took the position like fish in water. It turns out that developing your spatial intelligence is useful for technical-type roles.
  4. Hvac
    1. my cousin makes an excellent living doing this and has had a steady, well-paying job for 5 years.
  5. And a lot of other positions.

Basically, if you want to be an "engineer" like people envisioned engineering 30 years ago, Mechanical is a good choice.

Electrical Engineering is very different. Electrical engineering is the engineering specialty of everything that has gained prominence in the last 30 years. Anything to do with power or computers will largely depend on electrical engineers. Most importantly, you are considered to be at least somewhat proficient in programming. Which opens up a ton of other options.

So which one is better?

It really depends on whether you want to design the real world or the virtual one.


An important caveat to the above. There are many more research opportunities for electrical engineers than for mechanical engineers. Mechanical Engineering, as a discipline, is on a kind of plateau. Electrical engineers can earn master's degrees in all kinds of fields that are still growing. These include

  1. Batteries
  2. Photonics
  3. Nanotechnology.
  4. Computer speed
  5. And so on.

So if you know you want to do research and / or graduate studies, Electrical Engineering is a better option.

The best job profile is the one that best suits your interests and the desired level of responsibility.

If you are looking for a job profile, you have probably already narrowed down the market or industry you are interested in. This could range from microelectronics to utility engineering. For now, we can rule out that you've already narrowed things down for interest. If that's the case, consider the following:

  1. What will your supervisor be like? Are they willing to advise you and help you learn and grow as a professional? Will you enjoy working with them? Unfortunately, engineers as a group tend to

The best job profile is the one that best suits your interests and the desired level of responsibility.

If you are looking for a job profile, you have probably already narrowed down the market or industry you are interested in. This could range from microelectronics to utility engineering. For now, we can rule out that you've already narrowed things down for interest. If that's the case, consider the following:

  1. What will your supervisor be like? Are they willing to advise you and help you learn and grow as a professional? Will you enjoy working with them? Unfortunately, engineers as a group tend to lean more toward technical ability and may not have developed their softer social skills.
  2. What is the corporate culture like? Will it fit in well with the cultural norms of the company? This can be anything from work-life balance to how they approach problem solving. You may want to ask questions about your values ​​and activities that help define the company.
  3. What level of responsibility will you have? You may be looking for a leadership role. Maybe you're not ready for that and want to develop engineering skills first. Be sure to take a close look at the amount of junior staff training and leadership that you may be asked to undertake. Many engineering firms are "flat" in their organizational structure. That is, one owner or lead engineer and everyone else is just "engineers." They can assume that if you have a certain number of years of experience, you will be providing some leadership ability. The title will still say engineer, so pay attention to the language in the job description.
  4. Be aware of the amount of travel required. Some engineering firms require a lot. Some do not have any travel requirements. Some are flexible. Some are very rigid about the amount they expect.

I've been through the same thing, so I know that naukri, monster, indeed, glitter, etc. will not help you. You will get results for useless unknown companies waiting for exp or consultancies. If you find a match, it does not mean that they will call after you submit the request. You are not going to get a job simply by sitting in front of a laptop. Get serious to give all the effort without complaints or expectations.

My first suggestion will be that you attend as many tours off campus and on foot as you can. You will not see an advertisement for any major companies such as Havell's, Philips, L&T, etc. for walkin. See which university allows

I've been through the same thing, so I know that naukri, monster, indeed, glitter, etc. will not help you. You will get results for useless unknown companies waiting for exp or consultancies. If you find a match, it does not mean that they will call after you submit the request. You are not going to get a job simply by sitting in front of a laptop. Get serious to give all the effort without complaints or expectations.

My first suggestion will be that you attend as many tours off campus and on foot as you can. You will not see an advertisement for any major companies such as Havell's, Philips, L&T, etc. for walkin. See which university allows you to participate in their campaigns, most do not. PIET (Panipat Institute of Engg and Technology) has one of the best opportunities for newbies. Many units are open to everyone, the package and profile are decent (not always, of course). Similarly, Emax haryana and other universities. Keep a list of them and check their websites for upcoming companies, especially from PIET. Then there is the Aryan job fair, Chandigath. Not the best idea I should tell you, 8 out of 10 companies will suck, but again it depends on how desperate you are.

If you're open to IT or non-tech jobs, you can search prepareinterviews.com for walks, off-campus, and job fairs. Freshersvacancy.net, etc. ate some other sites for the same thing. Make sure you understand that if they are offering work and not training, it creates a lot of confusion these days. Create a good LinkedIn profile and share your link on the resume, especially if you apply online to show recruiters more.

Then there is a ray of light in the dark, that is, AMCAT. It will give you a real-time opportunity to give interviews at different companies like HCL, Cognizant, etc., which is difficult otherwise as they are currently recruiting mostly for off-campus technical support (for non-CS / IT branches ).

Most imp know within the industry, not all vacancies are displayed on the internet. Ask your seniors, TPOs, friends for information if they know of any vacancies in any ABC company. Since they have a better chance of wearing it without a lot of fancy screening tests. See if you can find references, try anything for everything. Forget the word shame and rejection. Get ready to travel to far away places, you have graduated and you are not working. You have all the time to make an effort that you don't get later.

Depending on your need, you may find unusual companies that not everyone knows can help. It doesn't feel ideal for a long time. Skill India is launching apprenticeship training. You can register with NATS and other websites. You will be able to train in good company and they may confirm you after training. Don't look at the stipend at first, that's not your goal unless you have a situation.

Lastly, beware of consultancies, bogus offer letters, and companies. Never send money, guarantee or whatever.

PS: Do not leave your studies in search of work. Check your technical, communication and Apti GD / PI skills.

Thanks.

The choice of electrical engineering is a complicated matter. It is one thing that it is a difficult subject to master. But like you said, you are learning the laws well and getting good grades, you have to be talented, which is a good thing. The electrical engineering field is very competitive, so you have to work hard and smart to get a good position. In this sense, these are my suggestions.

  1. Try to qualify for the engineering reference exam in your country. In India it's GATE, but you have to see what's in Austria.
  2. This can also help you get a job in the government. As an electrical engineer

But like you said, you are learning the laws well and getting good grades, you have to be talented, which is a good thing.

  1. Try to qualify for the engineering reference exam in your country. In India it's GATE, but you have to see what's in Austria.
  2. This can also help you get a job in the government. Since electrical engineering jobs are industry dependent, the government is the best employer of choice, managing many power and process industries.
  3. Search job sites and see what positions are emerging in your field in Austria / Germany. Try to prepare for interviews in those fields by reading their job descriptions.
  4. In the last year, try to do some additional courses like PLC, SCADA, Autocad, ETAP, etc. If cash is a premium resource, turn to YouTube and try to get a broad idea about these domains.
  5. One practical thing that you can master is electrical installations. You can start with your home and understand how the energy comes from the utility transformer to your panel of consumers and is distributed within your home. Take advantage of that and learn how to design the power distribution of multi-story buildings. This will help you in interviews.
  6. As new, you can enter the construction field with greater ease. Other sectors are the energy, oil and gas, and process industries. Research is also another option, but for that you need a master's and doctorate. So weigh your options and help yourself.

I have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, but I am placed as a mechanical engineer at Indian Railways. It is up to them which field they provide. Some of the means by which you can enter Indian Railways are:

  1. Show up for the UPSC Engineering Services Exam and write IRSE as your top priority on the detailed request form.
  2. You can also sit for the UPSC civil service exam and choose IRTS as an option at DAF. Although there are more impressive services than IRTS in public administration that you should prefer first.
  3. Appear for the examinations conducted by the railways contracting boards of and

  3. Show up for exams conducted by the rail contracting boards on your side of the engineering field.

These are some of the channels I am aware of by which an engineer can be located at Indian Railways. As soon as I update on any other channel I will add it in this post.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

If you're new to the game, you may be forced to put up with boring tasks until employers gain confidence in your abilities and in your reliability, conscientiousness, and other personal characteristics. Canadian engineers keep records of their work; You do? They are useful when it comes time to apply for better jobs because you can use them to show cases where you have demonstrated your various skills and the results you have achieved.

I don't know what jobs are available where you live.

  • Are you cultivating a network of other engineers with whom you can share advice and information?
  • Do you attend meetings of engineers and like-minded people?
  • Are you looking for opportunities to meet people from the companies you would like to work for?

One possible job is to write a front-end for a system to schedule massive power transfers. I had this job, but I did it terribly due to concentration problems. I found it horribly boring and couldn't focus on it. They demoted me to YOU ​​and then they let me go. However, I succeeded.

Another job would be to create a multiband antenna for a new spacecraft. I don't think most CS graduates know enough about RF to even start this.

If you are good with electronics and can work with embedded systems or can work at the interface between power generation and business, it could make EE work non-intensive.

Why do you care? Please finish your course with dedication and try to get good grades. A student should aspire to finish the course to the best of his ability. Job well will surely land on your lap. Anxiety and fear for the future is common at his age. But that too will pass. Don't think your employer is favoring you with a job offer. It needs your energy, dynamism and performance. You are second to none. You will win. Now just try to graduate with good grades. The rest will follow. After all, you only need one job. You will receive it. All the best.

The following power supply units in India pay high salaries ranging from 6 lpa to 12 lpa.
