What does an Electrical Engineer do?

An Electrical Engineer designs, develops, tests and supervises the deployment of electronic devices and electrical systems. Their work varies from working on the design of a telecommunication system, the electrical control of industrial machinery to the operations of electric power stations of designing household appliances. When starting a new project, it’s important to know what the design should be able to do. They design the circuits and part and build a prototype. When a product has bugs or doesn’t work properly, it need to be fixed by the engineer. The engineer works most times in a lab, office, mine or industrial plant. Most likely they can pursue a technical career in any industry.

 

What is Electrical engineering?

Electrical engineering is a technical discipline which deals with the study and application of electronics, electricity and electromagnetism. Since the latter half of the 19th century, electrical engineering became a occupation. This occurred after the invention of the telephone, electric telegraph and use and distribution of electric power. It became more important when electronics became part of daily life with recording media and broadcasting and when the transistor and the integrated circuit brought down the cost of electronics. There is a wide range of subdisciplines in the world of electrical engineering, like power engineering, electronics, control systems, instrumentation and microelectronics.

Working as an Electrical Engineer

Important in the education of electrical engineers are the sciences of physics and mathematics. Most of the electrical engineers work a lot with computers and the use of computer-aided design programs is commonplace. Still it’s important to have the ability to sketch for a quick communication with others. The basic circuit theory (the interactions between resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors and inductors in a circuit) is something most electrical engineers have to understand.
