As an electrical engineer, you will use science, technology and problem-solving skills to design, construct and maintain products, services, and information systems. You may specialize in electronics, electrical engineering or computer engineering.
Electrical engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment, such as:
machinery controls, lighting and wiring in buildings
radar and navigation systems
power generation, control and transmission devices used by electric utilities
Electrical engineers traditionally focus on the generation and supply of power, such as power systems engineering or electrical equipment manufacturing. Many electrical engineers are able to move on to positions of management because of the increasing demand for experts in engineering, technology and science.
A BS in Electrical Engineering also gives you the skills and education you need as a starting point in many other diverse fields, ranging from biomedical engineering, computer science, and aerospace engineering to business, law and medicine.
