Electrical Engineering encompasses all aspects of electricity from power engineering, the development of the devices for the generation and transmission of electrical power, to electronics. Electronics is a branch of electrical engineering that deals with devices that use electricity for control of processes. Subspecialties of electronics include computer engineering, microwave engineering, communications, and digital signal processing. It is the engineering specialty that has grown the most in recent decades.
Electrical engineers, taking into account the principles and practices of engineering, develop and design electrical equipment. This includes equipment that's used in cars and aircraft, power generation, communication systems, motors, and radar and navigation systems. They also supervise the manufacturing of this equipment and perform tests to make sure it is functioning properly.
