Electrical Engineering


How many things in your daily life use power – either mains, batteries, petrol, motors or even solar power? There was an Electrical Engineer behind the creation of every one of those items! Electrical and Electronic Engineering involves the generation, storage and use of power.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) covers the generation, storage and use of power. Think about how many items in your daily life use power (mains, batteries, petrol/ motors or even solar panels).

EEE is a very important part of your everyday life. The study of EEE can involve large amounts of power (eg power and control engineering) and large devices (eg power stations and electric vehicles) or small amounts of power (eg computer, communications and information engineering) and small devices (eg MP3 players and cell phones).


Electrical and Electronic engineers are involved in the analysis of existing systems (whether electrical, electronic or computer systems) and they are often involved in creating and designing new products and systems for manufacturing industries.

But there is more to Electrical engineering than just that. Many advances in biomedicine were pioneered by electrical engineers, many software houses such as Microsoft employ electrical engineers and so do airplane manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus. Most astronomical observatories employ Electrical engineers to design their telescopes, other optical instruments and do advanced signal processing. Graduates from this department are doing these things.
