Why ECE continues to rock
There are two things every student at the Anna University campus, waiting for her admission these days, is sure of. First, she wants to be in a college that attracts good placements and second, she wants the Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) course.
Three days after engineering counseling began, of the 4,948 students allotted seats, nearly 1, 226 have opted for ECE. Mechanical engineering, with 892 seats, came second and computer science with around 724 takers was third.
ECE –combined with the study of telecom networks – is definitely a popular choice
The fact that students in ECE are permitted to appear for campus placements of both core and IT jobs, is a contributing factor to the course’s popularity, say experts.
Former Anna University Vice Chancellor E. Balagurusamy attributes the situation to computer science losing its sheen. “Every graduate can become a programmer but ECE offers an unlimited scope to work in areas including IT, mobile networks and instrumentation. This flexibility is what attracts them,” he said.
