|Field of Study:||Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering
|Description:||Electrical Engineering is the design and analysis of any device or system that uses electricity or electro-magnetic radiation including computers and the networks that connect them, consumer electronic goods like MP3 players, power generation and transmission systems, cellular and line-based telephone networks, integrated circuits and electronic devices, electric motors and actuators, MRI and other medical instruments, radio and satellite television, and more. Much of our modern way of life depends on electrical engineering.
Electrical engineers are the masters of electricity. They know how to manipulate electricity and use it for useful purposes, including: how to produce and measure currents and voltages; how to produce and manipulate electric fields, magnetic fields and electro-magnetic waves; how electricity flows in metals and semiconductors; and how to use this knowledge to produce components, circuits and devices. Electrical engineers know how to integrate devices into complex electrical systems. Students in the College of Engineering have an opportunity to obtain work experience for a period of 8, 12 or 16 months between their third and fourth years. Students are paid a salary comparable to that of a graduating engineer.
