Electrical Engineering is that branch of engineering which deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It covers the traditional areas like distribution and transmission of electricity as well as the new age applications in electronics ranging from telecommunications to micro processors. This discipline is thought to be one of the most rewarding fields of study as it offers plenty of job opportunities to students. Electrical engineers are required to design, manufacture, test, evaluate and manage electrical and electronic systems and appliances. This is an exploding field and the need for electrical engineers is continuously on the rise with the development of newer technologies and also due to the rapidly evolving fields of information and communication technology.
There are four different branches of engineering:
• Power – This deals with the generation of power, its transmission and distribution from such sources as nuclear, water and solar energy.
• Communications – This specialization involves aspects of communications such as circuit transmissions, acoustical engineering, etc. This branch of engineering is responsible for designing systems that can receive, transmit and deliver information into audio and video forms.
• Electronics – Those dealing with electronics are involved with the design and testing of electronic circuits that use the properties of diodes, resistors, inductors and transistors in order to achieve a particular function. Before the Second World War, this branch was more commonly known as radio engineering and dealt only with aspects of communications and the commercial radio. It was in the late 1950s, after consumer goods started to develop and lead to the manufacture of modern televisions and computers that, the term radio engineering slowly gave way to the name electronic engineering.
• Control systems – Those with a specialization in this field design such products as automatic regulators, guidance systems and robotic controls.
Graduates with a BTech degree in this field can find jobs both in the private as well as the public sector. Among the largest employers are those companies that deal in the manufacturing of computers and consumer electronics. They can also find employment in atomic power plants, hydroelectric power plants and thermal power plants. One can also opt for doing research in this field and join research labs and other similar institutes. And if one wants to remain in the academic field, that option is also available as he or she can join a college or university as a lecturer or professor.
