About the Program:

PAL_0019

Electrical  & Electronics Engineering is a professional Engineering discipline that generally deals with the study and application of ElectricityElectronics and Electromagnetism. This field first became an identifiable occupation in the latter half of the 19th century after commercialization of the Electric Telegraph, the telephone, and Electric Power Distribution. Subsequently, broadcasting and recording media made electronics, part of daily life. The invention of the transistor and later the integrated circuit, brought down the cost of electronics to the point that can be used in almost all household applications.

Electrical & Electronics Engineering  is broadly subdivided into a wide range of  fields including ElectronicsDigital ComputersComputer EngineeringPower EngineeringTelecommunicationsControl SystemsRadio-Frequency EngineeringSignal ProcessingInstrumentation and Microelectronics. Many of these disciplines combine with other engineering branches, leads to several  specialized area such as

  1. Hardware Engineering
  2.  Power Electronics
  3.  Electromagnetism & Waves
  4. Renewable Energies &
  5. Material Science
