Dear Amit,

Electronics Engineering' and 'Electrical Engineering' are sometimes used interchangeably, although Electronics Engineering is a sub-field of Electrical Engineering. Both disciplines require a solid background in mathematics and science and the ability to apply various theories to solve an array of technical problems. Most entry-level jobs typically require a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering or a Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering.

The major difference that distinguishes Electronics Engineering from the broader field of Electrical Engineering is the strength of the electrical currents. The power systems branch of Electrical Engineering focuses on the use of heavy currents and the use of larger and more powerful structures and mechanisms. By contrast, Electronics Engineering deals with the use of electrical components, the design of integrated circuits or control and signal shaping hardware for monitoring devices and sensors. Simply put, electrical engineers can design power distribution for municipalities, large buildings and structures. Electronics engineers design the communications and computer products we use on a daily basis.

Very similiar to electronics, Electronics and communication  generally deals with the designing, fabricatione, maintainance, supervising, and manufacturing electronic equipment used in the entertainment media, in hospitals, in the computer industry, for communication and in defense. Electronics engineers work with devices that use extremely small amounts of power. They work with microprocessors, fibre optics, and in telecommunication, television, and radio.

All the three are equally good and grants a very exploring career.

Thank you.
