Electrical Engineering


History The first real electrical engineer was William Gilbert. He is credited for creating the versorium . In 1800 Alessandro Volta created the voltaic pile, which was a forerunner to the battery. Starting in the 1830’s people began to use electricity for everyday and practical things. In 1983 at an international conference in Chicago, the terms volt, ampere, coulomb, ohm, farad, and henry were created. In the late 1880’s, electrical engineers declared a difference and a split between AC and DC currents. AC current won this contest of sorts and the field of AC currents was greatly expanded.


Responsibilities  They are responsible for things like providing assistance in the times when electrical or engineering problems arise before, during, or after construction.   They also build electrical and electronic systems and prototypes  They also have the responsibility of updating electrical prototypes, part assemblies, and other systems to correct functional deviations.

Different Careers :

Different Careers Electrical engineer is a very broad field. It is integrated into many other fields of engineering, because most of them deal with some sort of electricity Some of those include the aerospace, automotive, chemical, construction, defense, electronics, marine, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, power generation, rail, and utilities industries.

Education Requirements:

Education Requirements To be an electrical engineer in most businesses, you must have a for year bachelor’s degree. Master’s degrees will help some one advance to a managerial role . A doctorate degree is mostly for those who are interested in teaching at a University.


Earnings In the electrical engineer field today, workers on average can make about $50,381 a year to $105,373 per year. Lockheed Martin pays anywhere from $59,568 to $121,812 per year. An electrical engineer for the U.S. Air Force can make from $35,419 to $104,799 per year.

Professional Requirements :

Professional Requirements Electrical engineers must have academic credentials, work experience, character and reputation, English language skills, and National Professional Practice Examination.

Well-Known Companies :

Well-Known Companies Local: Lockheed Martin; Loacted in Altanta , GA National: U.S. Air Force International: Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers

Professional Organizations :

Professional Organizations  The ASEE, or American Institute for Engineering Education, was founded in 1893 and is still a non-profit organization. The IEEE, or Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology. It was formed in 1957 when AIEE and the institute of radio engineers merged. The South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE) was formed in 1909 and is comprised of over 5,000 members.

Well-Known Projects:

Well-Known Projects Local: Vogtle 3 and 4 in Waynesboro, Georgia National: One World Trade Center (Freedom Towers) (pictured) International: The U.A.E. Embassy was completed in 2010. The main contractor was C.R.J.E.
