In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of an Electrical Engineer.
Electrical engineering generally deals with the detailed study into the application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It is an extremely broad discipline that is further subdivided into a wide range of subfields including electronics, digital computers, control systems etc. Electrical engineering is one of the most sought after professions in the industry with almost every aspect of modern life depending on electrical engineers including aerospace industry, automotive industry, computing, communications and manufacturing. Electrical engineers need to be equipped with a diverse range of skills ranging from basic circuit theory to management skills to effectively tackle different problems and create innovative solutions.
Electrical engineering (under the subsection Power Generation) concerns the generation of electricity through various means like Hydel (Hydroelectrical), Thermal, Tidal, Solar to name just a few. Electrical engineering encompasses every facet of electricity starting from its generation down to its transmission and distribution to commercial and residential consumers.
In the Construction Industry, the area you would work in with this degree would be the Mechanical and Electrical area aka (M&E Engineering). You’ll be responsible for all the electrical design and layout of electrical wiring, and equipment in a building.
In Factories, you’ll be in charge of power supply, maintainance of electronic machines and equipment and also of the building.
To thrive and excel in this field you must have a profound understanding and knowledge of the principles of Maths, Physics, electronics, electromagnetism.
With an electrical degree in your hand, you are looking at a bright future ahead of you with the demand and use of electricity and electrical appliances increasing by day.
