Electrical engineers harness the power of electricity to move the world around us.
Electricity is a powerful natural force. Electrical engineers develop all kinds of systems and products that harness, distribute and use electricity, from large power plants to building wiring to household appliances. These engineers are challenged with generating electricity in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. And once generated, the electricity has to be distributed safely and in a way we can use it.
Electrical engineers interact with electricity using many tools, from simple voltmeters to sophisticated software tools.
Electrical engineers use their problem-solving skills to…
1. Design electrical systems to power vehicles, aircraft and buildings.2. Find sustainable ways to generate power on a large scale.3. Create electrical systems for entertainment and communication devices such as mobile phones and games consoles.4. Develop electrical systems to operate industrial robots.
