ELECTRICAL ENGINEER
Path

OKAY, I'M SOLD. THIS IS AMAZING
HOW DO I GET THERE?

STEP 1: Class XI-XII/Junior College

Go to high school or junior college and complete your HSC or 12th grade with subjects like Mathematics and Physics. You can take any one of the following optional subjects: Chemistry, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Biology (Botany & Zoology). 

A thorough understanding of vector algebra and trigonometry is essential for becoming a good electrical engineer.

STEP 2: Entrance Exams

Give an entrance exam to get into a graduate college for Electrical Engineering. The entrance exam you have to attempt depends on the college you want to go to. The MH-CET, IIT-JEE, and the AIEEE are the most commonly accepted ones. There are also other private entrances like the BITSAT. Institutes like VIT and Manipal University have entrance exams of their own.
STEP 3: Graduation

Get a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering (B.E/B. Tech) by opting for a four-year course from any reputed college. Alternatively, you can also opt for a three-year Diploma in Electrical Engineering. You could even work to get a diploma directly after your high school. However, a diploma degree will only help you get a job with a lower payscale.

STEP 4: Land a Job

After completing your education, join a company as an electrical engineer. You could work in various sections of the industry: power systems engineering, power electronics, high voltage engineering, machines; the list is near endless. Congratulations, you are now officially an electrical engineer!

STEP 5: Post-graduation

A postgraduate degree helps you get better jobs and earn a higher salary. You can pursue a Masters in Electrical Engineering (M.E/M.Tech) from any reputed college. Alternatively, you can also choose to earn a Postgraduate Diploma in Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (PGDETE). A PhD in Electronics & Communications will also add immense value to your qualifications.
