These words of this famous professor of Engineering actually describe Electrical Engineering quite well.
Electrical Engineering is the branch of engineering, which has had the most profound impact on the mankind in the last century. In fact, most of the last two decades of new inventions and progress in Information Technology is the result of progress in the circuit based engineering, whose base is Electrical Engineering. Therefore Electrical Engineering can truly be considered as not just one career option but actually a platform of many career options.
Electrical engineers create and implement electrical systems for everything from houses to rockets. Devices that transmit signals such as GPS and radar are products of electrical engineering. As an electrical engineer, you'll focus on power generation and transmission processes. One also experiments with new ways to use electronics, like using bio-medical devices that allow physicians to accurately assess a patient's condition without an invasive procedure.
Electrical engineering, the discipline that employs the largest number of engineers, covers everything related to electrical devices, systems, and the use of electricity. Electrical engineers work on power plants, computers, and other electrical devices. Electrical engineers are designing the dashboard computers that will monitor engine functions on automobiles of the future.
One of the career options that one will have after electrical engineering is research in new technology. Energy conservation is becoming increasingly important and electrical engineers are at the forefront in developing new ways to use solar, wind, water and other natural sources for power generation. Some of the things these engineers are working on now are The Electrical Ship. Ships use an enormous amount of energy and they can require multiple power systems to run every type of ship operations, from navigation to weapons. Electrical engineers are investigating the feasibility of using superconductors to run all the ship systems.
Bachelor of Engineering (BE)/ Bachelor of Technology (BTech): The eligibility class 12th with physics, chemistry and maths as the main subjects and qualification in Entrance Exam. The AMIE (Associate Memberships of the Institution of Engineers) offers courses, which are also equivalent to BE and B.Tech.
Masters in Engineering( ME) or Masters in Technology M.Tech: Eligibility is BE, B Tech and entrance Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) exam. The marks scored in this exam are valid in most colleges.
For those who wish to study further, a Ph.D. in engineering can be pursued.
The 4 years course in engineering from an IIT will cost about 2lakhs. There are a number of scholarships, fee waivers and loans available for those who are unable to fund the education. Apart from this, in most colleges the students can earn a small amount while working on a research project with the professors in their college and this can also help funding the course. The fees in other private colleges is more ranging from about 40,000 per year to about 70,000 per year.
In India there are many Universities and colleges that offer B Tech / B E and M Tech. Some of the top colleges offering the course are:
(1.) Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi
(2.) Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
(3.) Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
(4.) Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur
(5.) Indian Institute of Technology, Madras
(6.) Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati
(7.) Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee
(8.) Institute of Technology, Benaras Hindu University, Benaras.
(9.) Institute of Technology, Ropar
(10.) Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhi Nagar
(11.) Indian Institute of Technology, Bhubaneshwar
(12.) Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad
Some other reputed engineering colleges are:
(1.) University Institute of Engineering and Technology, South campus, Panjab University Chandigarh
(2.) Delhi Technological University, New Delhi (Formerly Delhi College of Engineering)
(3.) Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, Delhi
(4.) Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for women, New Delhi .
Electrical Engineers have quite a varied work schedule and work style, depending on the area or field that they are working in. For example, someone in Research and Development work for defence industry would spend a lot of time in laboratory working with newer circuits and going through lot of industry journals. Apart from spending time on experimenting, the R&D engineer would also spend time in documenting the results and outputs of the experiments. Whereas someone working in a large power generation unit would spend most of time in ensuring that the plant is running without any glitches and would give a lot of emphasis on maintenance etc.
