Electrical engineers deal with large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission and motor control. They create and design products using scientific principles, combined with natural curiosity, problem solving and innovation.
An electrical engineer can be employed in the design and construction of power lines, in the control and management of power stations, or in the design and installation of electrical systems and machinery, such as transformers, electric motors and power electronics.
Electrical engineers will play a vital role in the future development of a sustainable environment. There is a wide range of challenging paths available to an Engineer, Technologist or Technician. Career opportunities include Industrial research and development labs, Energy supply corporations, Electrical inspectorates, Software and services companies, Civil service, Technical monitoring agencies, Research institutes and educational institutions. Electrical Engineering graduates can also get opportunities in fields such as computer engineering, energy engineering, transport engineering, communications engineering and media.
