Electronic engineers on the other hand look after and maintain electronic equipment. Almost all the industries are highly dependent on electrical and electronic engineering and hence this courseprovides ample job opportunities to qualified engineers. Like every other industry in India, the electric/electronic industry too has benefitted a lot from the de-licensing and de-regulations that the government has allowed.Now with exposure to global players and competition, the Indian companies have improved the quality of production and are growing to their true potential. This, in turn means better job opportunities for electronic and electrical engineering graduates. The industry has seen a reported growth of 20% and is expected to continue at the same pace in the coming years. Qualified engineers are getting absorbed across industries and sectors and will continue to do so in future.Since electrical and electronics engineering is a talent-oriented field, it gives high returns for a given initial investment.

INNOVATIVE PROJECTS:

1.Vision controlled hazard detection robot

•Hazard detection is the technique of finding potential threats is any specified environment.keeping our environment as mines,here we emphasize on the threat of explosion due to the expansion and leakage of gasses Frequently the gasses in mines being carbon monoxide,methane,hydrogen and propane,we make use of a suitable gas sensor that has good sensitivity to all the above specified gasses The gas concentration levels are wireless relayed to the base station to where the robot is controlled and displayed on the LABVIEW GUI.
•vision control means use of camera toi effectively find the location of gas leakage. This in combination with the gas sensors can effectively spot the location of leakage by the concentration of leakage displayed in the LABVIEW GUI.The vision control is accomplished by means of a wireless camera placed at the robot. The video s relayed into the base station wirelessly thus enabling control from a distant location.A stepper motor is also used to make the camera more dynamic so that if can have a 360c view around its axis.
•The communication between the base station and the robot is achieved via zigbee technology.Zigbee technology enables effective communication in terms of speed, range and efficiency.Thus interfacing a gas sensor and a wireless camera into a robot using a PIC microcontroller we provide a new and dynamic way of both surveillance and hazard detection.
