I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but please bear with me,
I'm really interested in Electronics engineering and I want to pursue a degree in ECE, but I'm not sure about the job prospects in core electronics engineering in our cuntry. To my knowledge, there only a few Indian hardware companies and very few MNCs have big offices in India. I figured I would learn software programming on the side (since that's what most enginiggers do anyway) and get a job in the software industry in case ECE turns out to be a dead end. But I don't know if it is possible to foray into software so easily, or if I will get the same opportunities as the people who have a degree in computer science. I can land both courses in a private tier-2 koleg, so I have to decide between the two (my teachers and friends are all saying CSE of course because that's the more popular branch). Unfortunately I wont get either of these branches in govt institutes. I'm not against going abroad for MS either. If someone here is from an electronics background or has some knowledge about this I would really appreciate your advice. Thanks.
