Electrical & Electronics Engineering:

Electrical Engineering is a popular branch of engineering which deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.

The subfields include electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, and signal processing.

The focus of the course remains on designing and testing ICs, inductors, capacitors and resistors. The students also learn to design electronic circuits, computer systems and also develop control systems.

Electrical engineers are considered to deal with the problems associated with systems such as electric power transmission and electrical machines.

The course mainly includes fundamentals and principles of Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Project Management. The sub disciplines of Electrical and Electronics Engineering include power, control, electronics, microelectronics and Signal processing, Telecommunications, Instrumentation and Computers.

Electrical Engineering refers to electrical machinery, problems of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy, electrical controls in factories, motors and their control and transformers. One of its objectives is to provide electrical power to customers.

Graduate degree in Electrical Engineering spans for eight semesters, designated as Bachelor of Engineering (BE) or Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) at undergraduate level and with specialization in the subject domain at postgraduate and doctoral level. The undergraduate syllabus in the Indian universities typically includes major subjects of Electrical Machines, Switchgear protection, Electrical Drivers, High Voltage Engineering, Power System Analysis and Control, Power System Protection.
