How How To Get Good Internship As An Electrical Engineer


As you well know, that as an engineer, a good internship is a must. Internship is the perfect opportunity to learn about the basics of your branch, get a stipend, make necessary networking etc. It’s through the internship, that you actually get to know about the kind of responsibilities you will be expected to undertake, what’s to be expected from you as an electrical engineer, what skills you lack, and what skills you should polish up.


Moreover, as we have mentioned before, most internships lead to PPO ( pre placement offer) so performing well in the internship, can heap huge rewards for you.


So here’s a few tips on how to grab a good internship during your Bachelor’s :


Look out for research/training programmes: Many renowned organizations like DRDO, BARC, ISRO etc provide training programmes to bright students. But you have to maintain a decent GPA to be considered.


Polish your skills in the following areas : Since you will be applying for an internship, you are not expected to be an expert in your areas, but potential employers expect that you will have at least some knowledge about areas such as circuit analysis, power system, electrical machines, MATLAB, microcontrollers etc.
Develop Networks : One of the best ways to land a good internship is to network. Trace an alumni of your University, who currently works at the organization you are targeting, through the Linkedin, send an updated resume, and why you think you are the perfect candidate for the internship.

How To Ace Your ECE Exams!


Want to score high on your ECE semesters? Want to score those beautiful As? Want to have an aggregate/CPI  you can be proud of? Then read on!


Having a good GPA is important to all majors, especially in engineering . Many companies have a certain cut off which you need to satisfy if you want to sit for an interview. A good academic record is imperative to get into a good job at the beginning of your professional life.


So if you are planning to ace the ECE exams, read on…


Start revising High School Math Concepts : Believe it or not, first year engineering involves a lot of high school maths and science concepts. Some engineers neglect this portion – don’t be complacent – and keep in touch with high school maths. It will do you a world of good.


Conduct Strategic Studying : Mere ‘’hard’’ work will not get you good marks in college. You have to prepare in such a way, so that you clear the fundamentals and at the same time clear all the essential chapters  well before the exams. If you are an ECE student then you should start by focusing on the subject ‘’ Signals and Systems’’ which will help you when you start the subjects of Communication Systems and Digital Signal Processing in later sems.


Do an in depth reading on the subject Network Theory – which will help you understand the basics of Control systems, and diagnose circuits in analog electronics.


Coming To Challenging Part : According to many ECE grads, they struggle with the topics – Digital Communication and Electromagnetic Field Theory . In order to master the topic of Digital Communication, brush up the basics of  probability, signals and systems. You can refer to two books  by John . G. Proakis for the topic of Digital Communication, and the works of R.K Shevgaonkar for Electromagnetic Field Theory.  


Don’t count on mugging up, all nighters before exams etc. Instead count on studying and clearing a concept, mastering a basic each day.


How To Be Industry Ready

Nowadays – a mere Graduation cannot guarantee you a decent placement, which is why many decent engineering colleges all over India – are focusing not just on academic performance of their students but also striving to make them more ready for industry.


What does the term ‘’industry ready’’ signify? It just means that the student has prepared themselves to meet the current  employment/hiring standards of the target industry. Being industry ready certainly has a lot of benefits – it does make you a lot more employable than say a peer – who might have book smarts – but has little to zero practical knowledge, or doesnt have the current skills.


Employers Are Not Just Looking For Book Smarts : Got a good GPA? Congratulations! By the way that 8 point something GPA won’t guarantee a job! Most of the firms keep the GPA only as a basic criteria/filter. Having a good aggregate can help you get a foothold – an interview, but if you want a job offer, you have to display some top notch skills relevant to the employers you are aiming.
Not Being Industry Ready Increases Risk of Joblessness : Especially if you are an engineering graduate, being updated with the latest tech developments can actually help you bag a decent offer – as said before, employers are looking for engineers with latest skills – technical as well as problem solving skills. This is why many talented young engineers who are out of touch with the latest technical developments struggle to find a job!.  


Being Industry ready Increases Chances of Promotion : Did you know that constantly upgrading yourself and keeping up with the industrial trends actually increases chances of promotion?

At Brainware University , we prioritize boosting employability of our students by making them industry ready through strategic industrial internships, soft skill development, pre placement training etc.
