An Essay On Electrical Engineering

1633 Words7 Pages
Electrical Engineers Engineering is a very important occupation in our society. Many things (phones, computers, buildings, desks, chairs, toys etc.) that we have today had to be designed and innovated, and that's what engineers do, design and innovate. Electrical Engineers design electronic equipment, devices, or objects, like; “computers, robots, cell phones, cards, radars, navigation systems, wiring and lighting in buildings, and much, much more! They do many different things and design a lot of things. Some other (more specific) things they do include, “circuits such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors and diodes,micro-fabrication of tiny electronic circuit components, signals, such as analog or digital signals, electricity and design of related electrical devices such as transformers, generators, motors and power electronics, controllers that cause systems to behave in a certain way using micro-controllers, programmable logic controllers, digital signal processors and electrical circuits, transmission of information via a cable or optical fiber, measuring devices for pressure, flow and temperature, computers and computer hardware, and more. All this stuff isn't done by all electronics there are different kinds of engineers and many different projects/products they work on. Electric Engineering was actually first considered a subfield of physics. It started to get interest in the 170ths and after time more and more electrical things came out which needed designers to design and innovate (change and improve) them so around the 190ths it was big pretty big and was considered a profession. In 1882 the first electric engineer course was established at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by Professor C... ... middle of paper ... ...h and physics courses are typically prerequisites before students can take specific engineering. In upper-level engineering courses, some programs require students to choose a specialization. As students progress through an electrical engineering bachelors degree, courses continue to increase in difficulty. A bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from an ABET-accredited program qualifies graduates to take the Fundamentals of Engineering and Principles and Practice of Engineering exams. Students must pass these exams to become licensed professional engineers.” After a bachelor’s degree the newly made engineers can chose to join a job (like most do), or go straight to earning a master's degree or a Ph.D. If they choose not go through extra schooling they can start trying to become a professional engineer or choose to get a masters degree or Ph.D.later in life.
