Nowadays getting a good job is a very difficult, company requires a candidate who has good knowledge and more skills, so you can increase your skills by learning these software’s, once you build your skills in these all software then you will get a good job with a high package. Let’s discuss one by one.

Also read – Basic Electrical Questions And Answers. And now I will discuss the top 10 software for electrical engineers.

Software For Electrical Engineers

01. AutoCAD Electrical

  • AutoCAD electrical software is used by many electrical engineers to design the wiring plan of a building, machine designing, etc.
  • AutoCAD gives accuracy which enables you to draw with fractional dimensions.
  • The software is speed.
  • AutoCAD software is easy to use and edit.
  • It gives you a realistic view.
  • By learning AutoCAD software you can get a good job.

02. PLC Programming

PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) programming is easy to learn. You can learn everything online about ladder diagram, configuration but this is not good because you should do things practically and physically so I request you all to go to some training center to learn PLC programming practically. PLC is used in many industries for monitors and control processes.

Benefits of learning PLC programming

  1. Chance of getting a good job at Siemens, ABB company increases.
  2. Are you in the networking field then it is useful for you?
  3. Demand is increasing day by day.

03. SCADA Software

The SCADA software stands for is a supervisory control and data acquisition. This software is one of the important software to learn for electrical engineers. This system is used in power plants, substations, etc to monitor and to find problems in equipment.

Benefits of SCADA System

  1. By using the SCADA system the life of equipment increases by regularly checking system performance.
  2. It also reduces labor costs.

04. AC/DC Drive Software

Nowadays, each and every industry uses a drive it may be AC or DC based on the application. The AC/DC drive software is used for controlling the drive as our requirements. If you want a job in an industry-based company like data steels, Jindal steels then you must learn this software.

05. Proteus And Pspice

The proteus software is a very important software where we can design the circuit and check the output. This software is mostly used by electronics engineers to simulate circuits. In this software, you can design any circuit like regulated power supply, digital circuits, etc. Same to proteus, PSpice software is also available in the market.

06. OrCAD

This software is also used in many industries for drawing electronic circuit schematics, the framework of providing visual stimulation and routing, drawing, designing printed circuit boards. Many iPhone has design drafted using OrCAD software.

07. Xilinx 

This software is most useful for electronics engineers and as well as electrical for implementing Verilog code, this is also useful for VLSI designing. This software used to implement the digital circuit in the EPGA kit. If you want a job in a Verilog field or VLSI then you must learn this software it will help you a lot.

08. Keil

If you are interested to get a job in the embedded system then you must learn this software. This software is useful to build projects related to the embedded system. To dump software in a micro-controller, this tool is used where you can write code and then simulate, and then you can dump in micro-controller and check the output.

09. ETAP

The ETAP stands for Electrical Transient and Analysis Program. This software is used for design simulation, automation, and operation of distribution, generation, and industrial power systems. This software can simulate your system and calculate for all electrical quantities such as currents, faults, voltage drops, etc to validate your electrical design. It is also used for solar system analysis.


The PSCAD stands for power system computer-aided design software used to simulate and design an electrical power system in Commerical and industrial buildings. The application of this software is in power plants, stations, FACTS, etc.

So, guys, these are the top software for electrical engineers to learn which will help you to get a good job in good companies with high package salary.

I hope this article may help you all a lot.

Thank You For Reading.
