What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineers work with electronics, electricity, and electromagnetism, and electronic devices. Electrical engineering covers a broad range of application areas, including power generation and delivery, transportation (cars and airplanes), communication (radio, TV, wireless, telephones), robotics, computers (memory systems, displays, microprocessors), defense applications (navigation, radar, and secure communication), and consumer electronics (DVD and MP3 players).
