“Electrical Engineering” is the field where we deal with the energy that runs our world. It can be exists in various forms like gas, fuel cell, turbine, hydro, solar, wind or geothermal energy.
Electrical engineering has the complete knowledge to utilize and distribute these energies out from their sources to our factories, home, hospitals, school and offices, and our life.
Today, electrical engineering not only involves in electrical appliances, but also involves in computer, electronics, communication and mechanical fields.
Electrical engineering is one of the select-able disciplines in the field of engineering and technology.
“Electrical Engineering deals with the application and study of electromagnetism, electronics and electricity”
Electrical engineering has been adopted in professional education in the year 1882. In the year 1884, the great physics Thomas Edison has provided the 110 volt’s DC electricity to his 59 customers in Manhattan City in Newyork.
Course & Duration
Electrical engineering is an exciting filed of engineering and technology. Electronics engineering and electrical & electronics engineering are the close related to this field. The duration of the total course take four to five years
After completion of UG degree the students are designated as the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology, depending on the University.
A bachelor degree usually covers the mathematics, physics, project management, and computer science.
There are so many specializations or sub-disciplines in electrical engineering but to choose in higher degrees after completion of bachelor degree. You can choose the Electrical Engineering, once you have completed your 10 or 10+2 examination with mathematics and science.
The academic criterion of Electrical Engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:
Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration. (after 10th or 12th)
UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after Graduation)
Beside these, it is one of the broad research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree.
For entering in PG (M.Tech) programme, B.Tech in Electrical Engineering is must.
