What we do
Starting with electric and electronic circuits, electrical engineers learned to understand and control powerful, yet invisible physical phenomena for the advancement of human society.
From the generation and transmission of electrical energy, to radio waves, computers, biomedical technology, microelectronics and nanomachines, electrical engineers leave their imprint throughout the fabric of modern life.
You may be surprised to learn that the core disciplines of electrical engineering encompass the disciplined control of complex systems and the detection and communication of multimedia signals, all originally developed from the study of electronics circuits.
An electrical engineer is someone who designs and develops new electrical systems, solves problems and tests equipment.
Electrical engineering addresses problems, physical phenomena and techniques that lie beyond the everyday experience of most people.
