Electrical engineering is a sub branch of the field of engineering which is concerned with the study, design and the application of systems, devices and other equipment that use electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. This engineering discipline emerged to prominence during the latter part of the nineteenth century, and is one of the most lucrative fields of engineering today.
In today’s world, electrical engineering is further subdivided into a diverse range of several different fields, such as computer engineering, power engineering, telecommunications, systems engineering, signal processing, electronics, optics, photonics, photovoltaic cells, instrumentation and radio frequency engineering. Several of these electrical engineering disciplines overlap with other branches of engineering as well, in turn spanning an even greater number of engineering specialisations. These specialisations include hardware engineering, renewable energy, electromagnetics and waves, microwave engineering, nanotechnology, electrochemistry, power electronics, mechatronics and electrical materials engineering.
Electrical engineers are the people who develop electrical products, networks and systems for a diverse range of applications and projects by applying the principles of electricity, electronics as well as electromagnetism. They work on projects that are small scale, such as household devices and circuitry, to large scale projects, such as power generation, telecommunications, signal processing or microelectronics.
In order to pursue a career in the field of electrical engineering, one needs to earn a degree in electrical engineering or electronics engineering. Some practicing engineers may even hold certificates which they have earned upon the completion of a professional certification course.
The work of electrical engineers spans a wide range of projects and industries. Their skills too are just as varied and diverse. Electrical engineers, therefore, can have skills ranging from intimate knowledge of circuit theory to the application of solar energy technologies to even the coordination and managerial skills of a project manager overseeing the implementation of a process. Likewise, the equipment, instruments and tools that an electrical engineer would need is also dependent on their expertise and the task at hand, ranging from a simple toolkit to highly advanced design software.
Needless to say, the roles and duties of an electrical engineer are diverse and multifaceted. Their work also extends to the performance of risk assessments, the ensuring of statutory compliances as well as research and developmental activities. It also goes without saying that electrical engineers need to have excellent communication and collaboration skills, as well as the ability to work under pressure.
Nowadays, people with an educational background in electrical engineering typically find jobs through campus recruitment drives at their colleges or universities, through online job portals, or through referrals from friends and family members. Others, meanwhile, rely on professional social networking sites (such as LinkedIn), while other people rely on advertisements in newspapers.
India is a country where the newspaper is held in high regard. People view newspapers as sources of authentic and reliable information, and it is for this reason that newspaper advertisements remain relevant even today. People seeking employment in the field of electrical engineering look for suitable job vacancies in the ‘recruitment’ and ‘situation vacant’ sections, so if you are looking for the best electrical engineers to join your company, you should book a recruitment ad today!
