Why Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineering is an exciting and challenging field that uses electricity and electronics to provide solutions to real-world problems.

It is a profession based on using the fundamentals of engineering, physics, and mathematics. If you like mathematics and science and enjoy the challenge of solving problems, electrical engineering is likely to appeal to you.

Electrical engineering provides a broad spectrum of career opportunities to choose from. Examples include circuit design, embedded systems, VLSI design, wearable computing, control systems, communications, networking, electromagnetics, antennas, robotics, signal and image processing, and electric power generation and transmission. Electrical engineering can also provide a unique background for further study in the business, medical, or legal professions.

Electrical engineers lead the way in technological innovation. Think about the rapid advancement in electronics and the things you use every day: your cell phone, your computer, portable music devices, microwave ovens, remote controls, and HDTV. Then there are many more things you may not think of at first: the radar gun that caught you speeding the other day, the early warning radar system that protects our country, missile guidance systems, artificial limbs, medical instrumentation, and robotic systems for performing medical operations, exploring Mars or the ocean floor, or locating people in a collapsed building.

So be an electrical engineer! Help create the next new technology!
