An Electrical Engineering Degree will equip its graduate with at least one area of expertise. Some of the specialties that an electrical engineering degree offers are as follows:
• Robotics (artificial intelligence)
• Communications systems – Television, radio, and telephone technology,
• Integrated circuits
• Solid state devices – (electronic controls and navigational systems)
• Power systems – (Power grids, generators, and power distribution)
The field of Electrical Engineering is so broad that in most cases, the Electrical Engineer will find himself overlapping with the expertise of the other sub-disciplines of engineering such as Computer Engineering, Solar Engineering, Materials Engineering and even Paper Engineering. However, this only opens so many doors for the graduate since a holistic approach to the various disciplines will make him in demand in various industries. It is imperative, therefore, for the student seeking an Electrical Engineering Degree, to be adept not only with the discipline of electrical engineering but also with allied industries that have sub-disciplines in electricity.
An Electrical Engineer will find himself adept with numerical analysis, electrical circuits, thermodynamics, engineering economy and engineering materials. So depending on the industry he is in, he will either flourish in research and development or do equally well in the herculean task of maintaining systems that spans states and countries.
All industries run on electricity and computer systems, and employees or supervisors with an electrical Engineering Degree is a condition sine qua non for efficient management of resources. Thus, graduates of this course will always be in demand.
