Electrical Engineering is one of the largest and most diverse technological and Engineering disciplines in today’s world. This branch of Engineering deals with the study and application of Electricity, Electronics and Electromagnetism for the development and maintenance of Electrical and Electronics equipment such as electric motors, navigation systems, medical devices, broadcast and communication systems, power generation systems, electrical distribution systems, electric grids etc., while keeping in mind the safety, quality, economic feasibility and sustainability of these products and systems.
Based on the fundamentals of Physics and Mathematics, Electrical Engineering became a field of its own in the 19th century due to innovations such as the generator, motors, telephone, wireless communications and electronics. Ever since, this field has sure come a long way. Not only has it been one of the major driving forces behind cutting-edge technology in areas such as Power Engineering, Computer Engineering, Communications and Mobile Technologies, it has also significantly impacted several other fields such as Nanotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience and Biotechnology, etc.
Qualified Electrical Engineers are always in demand since most industries use electricity and electric machines. Engineers are required by industries for operational, maintenance and manufacturing purposes. For graduates, job opportunities are ample, in both private and public sector, including railways, civil aviation, electricity board and utility companies, electrical design & consultancy firms and all types of manufacturing industries.
Companies like ABB, Bajaj International Private Ltd, Crompton Greaves Limited, Siemens Ltd, Reliance Power Ltd, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), Coal India Limited (CIL), Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL), Centre for Electronics Design and Technology and Wipro Lighting are the biggest employers hiring Electrical Engineers. Core companies such as Qualcomm, Intel, Ericsson, nVidia, Analog Devices Ltd, Broadcom, Cisco Systems, Cosmic Circuits, Ericsson India Global Services, Eaton Technologies, IBM, Schneider Electric, General Electric, Analog Devices, Cosmic Circuits Pvt Ltd, KLA Tencor, NTT Communications, Texas Instruments also hire Electrical Engineers.
Electrical Engineers specialise in power supply and generation. Students use Science, Engineering, technology and analytical reasoning, creative & critical thinking skills to solve problems & design, construct & maintain electrical and electronics products. As a result:
The Ist year of Electrical Engineering will cover basic Science courses such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and a basic overview of other engineering disciplines such as Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electronics, Introduction to Computers, among others. The IInd and IIIrd year, will expose students to core subjects in Electrical Engineering, including power system analysis, motors, transformers, control systems, high-voltage engineering, power electronics, power system economics & control techniques, power system protection, switch gear and utilisation of electrical energy. In the fourth year, students will be given an option to choose their elective subjects. They will also be aided in acquiring an internship.
