    Do you mean Electronics as in an Master's Degree or Electrical as in a Bachelor's Degree?

    Post Graduate education opportunities are different from a plain four year degree.

    In my experience during school and work electronics engineering and electrical engineering are different things. Electronics engineering is more hands on, applicable and (right or wrong) considered less rigorous. Electrical engineering is more broad, more mathematical and more common. At my job we have many electronics engineering graduates working as maintenance and process technicians. They generally like to get their hands dirty more than the "real" engineers who sit at a desk most of the day.

    I am currently studying 4 years undergraduate course in Electronics Engineering. So I want to ask that what kind of jobs are available to me and which extra courses should I study as a plus point from recruitment point of view ?
