Electrical Engineering is a broad discipline of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It incorporates study of sub-topics such as power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications. Alternatively, it can be said that electrical engineering is concerned with using, distributing and generating electrical power as well as applying the same in the field of communication, control system, electronic computer, industrial electronics and instrumentation. Electrical engineers perform, research, develop, design, test and oversee the progress of electronic systems and the production of electrical and electronics equipment and devices. Many electrical and electronics engineers are also employed in areas closely related to computers.
