Cources like Electronics and communication,Electrical and Mechanical are very stable and ever green.They will have less impact by recession.That is not the case with computers and IT.They are proportional to market fluctuations.
I am from Computer science but ECE has good opportunities in the future compared to mine.Most government jobs prefer candidates from ECE and EEE.(you occupy majority of seats).As an example, ECE branch is opted by most students in this year's EAMCET.This is a rough indicator.
All the best
