Electrical engineering is a professional engineering field which deals with various electric-related issues like electric power engineering, electronics, power electronics. It has many sub-disciplines that are microelectronics, telecommunication engineering, signal processing, control engineering, computer engineering, integrated circuits, digital electronics, power engineering, optoelectronics. The field aims to look into the problems of electronic systems which can be large scale (electric-power engineering) or small scale (nanoelectronics). The discipline aims to provide knowledge about generation, distribution, transmission and application of electrical energy. Graduates can work as engineers in very broad job occupations, starting from manufacturing of electronic components to electrical power systems and telecommunication engineers.
