Electronics or Electrical?

  1. May 5, 2007 #1
    Im interested in doing my undergraduate course in something with regard to Electrical or Electronics. But i paticularly do not understand the difference between the two.
    I am more inclined toward electronics but because of the few number of institutes that are offering the courses in elecronics i am beginning to feel that there is not much demand in this field.
    The courses i am referring to here are:
    1)Electroncs and Electrical
    2)Electronics and instrumentation
    3)Electronics and telecommunication

    Which course has the maximum applicability in todays broad ranged market?

    Most schools offer an electrical engineering degree and you can focus on electronics when you choose your professional electives.
