With increasing applications for the field of electronics in almost every sector, the electronics manufacturing industry provides good scope for employment. Even though the Indian industry is no way in comparison with the electronics manufacturing industry in China and some South-East Asian countries, but things are picking up in the Indian market and a lot many manufacturers have set up shop in the country, both in the private and public sector. Among the things that get manufactured in an electronic manufacturing firm are semiconductor devices like diodes, transistors and integrated circuits, printed circuit boards, resistors, capacitors and so on. Other than the manufacturing of the individual components, there are also activities like soldering and assembling of components into the printed circuit board, involved in it.
Eligibility and course duration
Pass in class 10th from a recognized school or institution. Should have the knack for this trade that involves handling, assembling and soldering of small electronic components to the PCB.
Duration of the course is 3 years, full-time.
