    ryan gill:

    No electrical engineering does not have good scope in india ,
    primary reasons are:-
    1)if you want to join psu then it’s fine they need programmed robots who can do repetitive work in short if you think you don’t expect to see much in your carrier then it’s fine go for that boring job.Almost all psu are govt backed and does not require any specials skills(except clear an exam),there engineers and primitive when it comes to technology.
    2)Private industry is doomed and the market of transformer and induction motor is taken by china , it’s in double digit negative growth
    3) No R&D in electrical engineering (there is some improvements in electronics though) ,govt organistation like drdo,….. who can’t even make SDR after spending 100 crs in the project and then later ordering it from somewhere else.
    4)No challenging work or projects in india, MOST of the electrical engineers are dumb and does not have ability to innovate anything they can’t see beyond switchgears.
