Transcript of Electrical Engineering

EE have to know the physics of electricity and magnetism; mathematics of circuits and systems; and engineering tools of analysis and design.
Design, develop, build, and test electrical devices.
They are trained in the design and manufacture of economical and safe products that enhance the quality of life for human beings.
Electrical Engineering
Areas of Specialization
Communication and Signal Processing
Computer Engineering
Control Engineering
Electronics and Microelectronics
Optical Engineering
Power Systems
Communication and Signal Processing
Communication is the process of transferring information from one point in time and space to another. Signal processing deals with signal representation, signal design and filtering.
Computer Engineering
Computer engineering deals with both hardware and software for small and large computers. It also deals with the increasing number of products that have dedicated computers within the product, such as cell phones, microwave ovens and automobiles.
Control Engineering
Control engineering deals with the design and implementation of algorithms for controlling physical systems.
Electromagnetics involves the study and application of electromagnetic compatibility, fiber optics, antennas, radar, sonar, satellite systems, power and communication transmission lines, grounding, and shielding and propagation.
Electronics and Microelectronics
Electronics and microeletronics deals with integrated circuits, transistors, lasers, consumer electronics, defense electronics and electronic materials.
Optics Engineering
Studies the theories and the practical uses of optics in the following areas: geometrical, physical and Fourier optics; lasers; fiber optics; optical image processing and acquisition; holography; and optical diagnostics using light of various wavelengths.
Power Systems
Deals with the generation of electrical power on both large and small scales.
The term "electrical engineering" was not in use in 1871 when the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) was founded under its original name of "the Society of Telegraph Engineers". The electric telegraph was the major application of electricity then, and those engaged in electric lighting were called "electricians". At the opening meeting a leading telegraph engineer made the prophecy that "this Society will develop more into an electrical society than into a society of telegraphy proper." He was soon proved right. Within a few years, the Society was hearing papers on electric lighting, and in 1880 the words "and Electricians" were added to the title. The present name was adopted in 1888. According to Alexander Pelham Trotter (1857-1947), who joined the Institution in 1885, the existence of a new branch of engineering, "electrical engineering", became apparent in 1881 when the first International Electrical Exhibition was held in Paris.
The founding fathers are Thomas Davenport, Sir Humphry Davy, Benjamin Franklin, Michael Faraday, Joseph Henry, Alessandro Volta, and Hippolyte Pixii.
Other notable electrical engineers: Alexander Graham Bell, Nikola Tesla, and Thomas Edison.

In 1997, 4960 students graduated with a degree in electrical engineering.
Major Projects
Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.
Thomas Edison invented the phonograph and the first practical light bulb.
Nikola Tesla invented the tesla coil and the transformer.
Philo Farnsworth made huge contributions to developing television.
Toyota is currently developing a new concept car called the FV2. It is more robot than car they say. It also has a computer-human interface. http://www.gizmag.com/toyota-fv2-concept/29664/
Lockheed Martin is in the process of finishing the flight turret assembly for the Airborne Laser (ABL) program. ABL will be the world's first megawatt-class laser weapon system integrated on a specially configured 747-400F aircraft to autonomously detect, track and destroy hostile ballistic missiles. Lockheed Martin is responsible for the system that will accurately point, focus and fire the laser to provide sufficient energy to destroy the missile while it is still in the highly vulnerable boost phase of flight - before separation of its warheads.
