About Department

Electrical Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Electrical engineers oversee the design, testing, manufacture, construction, and monitoring of electrical and electronic devices, machinery, and systems. Electrical engineers work in a very wide range of industries and the skills required are likewise variable. These range from basic circuit theory to the management skills required of a project manager. The tools and equipment that an individual engineer may need are similarly variable, ranging from a simple voltmeter to a top end analyzer to sopisticated design and manufacturing software.

Electrical engineers specialize in power supply and generation. They design, develop, test and supervise electrical equipment manufacturing. From construction plans for electrical lighting systems to skyscrapers, designing remote-controlled race cars and building technology for factories like robots that can perform welding. A spiring electrical engineers have to take as much math and science coursework as possible including algebra, calculus and trigonometry. Drafting courses are also valuable. This is mainly because engineering students are usually required to do technical drawings. Bachelor's degrees take four years to complete and include laboratory, classroom and field work.
