Electronics and communications engineering utilises nonlinear and active electrical components, such as transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, to design electronic circuits and devices within systems. They typically design passive electrical components too, which are typically found in printed circuit boards.
Electronics is a subfield within electrical engineering, which also covers analogue electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, power electronics and embedded systems. For those looking to pursue a career in the field of electronics and communications engineering, be prepared to deal with the implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields. Examples of these fields are solid-state physics, radio engineering, telecommunications, control systems, signal processing, systems engineering, computer engineering, electric power control, instrumentation engineering and robotics, to name a few…
In the field of electronic engineering, be prepared to design, build and test circuits that run on the electromagnetic properties of electrical components. In the design of a circuit, electronic engineers must first construct the schematics that specify the electrical components and describe the connections they have. These integrated circuits can be assembled on printed circuit boards (as previously mentioned) to form even more complicated circuits! PCBs are found in most electronic devices we use today.
