Dear Prateek,

Congratulations for getting such a good rank !

Electrical Engineers are needed in all manufacturing units, All major companies of public and private sector such as Electricity Boards, Large Scale Industries, Manufacturing Plants, Power Corporations, Hydro-Electricity sector are continuously in need of Electrical Engineers for their projects.Electrical Engineers usually get handsome salaries after some experience in related fields. Starters can get anywhere between Rs. 15,000/- to Rs.30,000/- per month.

Software engineering is projected to be the second fastest growing segment from 2006 to 2015, behind electrical and RF engineering - in terms of both salary and opportunities. Employment of software and firmware engineers is expected to increase much faster than the average for most non-engineering and all engineering occupations. Companies Hiring Software Engineerssuch as Microsoft corporation,sun microsystem,cisco systems,oracle corporation,apple computers,google,yahoo etc.
