Electrical Engineering is one of the most diverse engineering fields, covering everything from microelectronics to power generation. Electrical Engineers design and test analog electronics, digital electronics, optoelectronics, signal processors, telecommunication systems, control systems, robotics, and computers. This broad field provides a wealth of employment opportunities and is relatively immune to economic fluctuations. An undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering is a passport to a rewarding career.
