Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Communication (ECE) and Bachelor of Technology in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) are related disciplines. Both have good scope in terms of higher studies and career opportunities. Admission to these courses will be based on the entrance examinations conducted by the respective colleges/state. Candidates can also gain admission through the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE).

B.Tech in ECE

B.Tech in ECE graduates can find a number of job opportunities in the public and the private sector organisations. Career avenues are open in the technical section for those who complete a B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering. Various private sector companies like Wipro, Infosys, Siemen,TCS, Accenture, etc recruit ECE graduates as Technician, Project engineer, Assistant engineer, etc. Numerous other Multi National Companies dealing with Semiconductors and Chip Design like Motorola, IBM, Philips etc offer placement for graduates in ECE.

Which course is better?

While Electronics and Communication course deals with the combination of electronics with telecommunication, Electrical and Electronics is mainly concerned with various aspects of electrical energy and its transmission and generation. Both these courses have good future scope.. The thrust is on the electronics part in B.Tech in ECE and stress is more on electrical side when you are doing B.Tech in EEE.
