It’s almost impossible to give a short answer to this question, but if we had to try, we’d say that electrical engineers are the brains behind anything to do with electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. So that’s how it comes to be that power stations, the internet, navigation systems, and telecommunication networks – seemingly very different things – all fall under the electrical engineering banner.
At heart, electrical engineers are problem solvers and innovators who use maths and science to make our lives better and easier. Think about that new 55” TV you’ve just bought, the GPS you rely on to guide you, or the range of devices you use to chat with your loved ones. You have electrical engineers to thank for these (and many other) modern conveniences.
Some of the most famous electrical engineers in history include Alexander Graham Bell – credited with inventing the telephone, and Charles Babbage, who invented the first computer. As an electrical engineer today, you could find yourself designing the wiring and lighting system for an urban development, maintaining a power grid, or working on an electric car.
Let’s look at some of the sub-fields that fall under this diverse area of engineering:
