Electrical Engineering is the practical application of the theory of electricity. This encompasses a broad range of specialty subdisciplines include some of the following. This list is not exhaustive, and there is considerable overlap (by definition and by profession desire) between these specialties.
PowerAndEnergyEngineering - Involves electrical power generation, transportation and conversion.
InstrumentationEngineering - Dealing with the measurement of process variables, typically in industrial applications.
Computer and Digital Engineering (equivalent to computer engineering)
Semiconductor Engineering - Involves the design, manufacturing and test of semiconductor devices and integrated circuits.
Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave Engineering - Involves radio, wireless and electromagnetic waves
TelecommunicationEngineering and DataCommunicationEngineering - Involves the hardware and software of [[telephones]], [[internet]] and [[satellite communications]].
Biomedical Engineering - Involves medicine, biology, mechanical and electrical engineering in the creation of technology for health and healthcare
Audio and Acoustic Engineering
Successful engineers know that education does not end when they receive their degrees. Many become members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Professional publications for electrical engineers (known as EEs) are numerous, and often freely available. A good source of information for EEs is EE Home Page, which provides educational and career development resources for practicing engineers, educators and students.
