Electrical engineering is one branch of the engineering profession, and is concerned with the understanding of electricity and the development of electronic systems.
The field of electrical engineering was established at the end of the 19th century when electricity generation and telegraph systems were being developed. The field has grown to encompass the computing and electronics fields, in addition to telecommunications and power transmission.
Academic programs on electrical engineering emphasize on the thorough understanding of electrical networks, electrical energy converters, devices of electromagnetic field theory, electrical energy distribution systems etc.
Scopes in electrical engineering lie in the areas of generating electricity, its distribution and transmission. Electrical engineering also has its applications in electronics, telecommunications, computers and micro processors. Most of the courses are a combination of electrical and electronic systems.
An electrical engineer has a wide range of activities, and thus, a lot of options. Career in electrical engineering encompasses the following fields:
