Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering is the study of the various applications of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. It deals with the generation, distribution, and transmission of electricity and new-age applications in electronics. Electrical engineers must develop, design, manufacture, test, evaluate, market, sell, and manage electrical and electronic systems. The course is closely linked with computation and neural systems, applied physics, computer science, and applied dynamical systems.
