The Industry

With the commercialization of electric power supply and the electric telegraph in the late 19th century, the need for designing, manufacturing, and maintaining electric lines, devices, and appliances created opportunities for specialization in this field. Electrical engineering, a field of engineering that deals with electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism has since become a full-fledged discipline. It covers a range of subtopics like telecommunications, power, electronics, signal processing, and control systems.

Electrical engineers understand power supply and generation, which allows them to design, develop, test, and maintain electronic equipment or install electricity in our buildings, vehicles and aircraft. They work in industries such as construction, aerospace, IT, telecommunications, energy, automotive, manufacturing, and design.

The Career Options

Electrical engineers have many possible career paths across many sectors in the economy. Within manufacturing and construction, an electrical engineer could work for an engineering services firm and develop sophisticated consumer electronics. Within research and development, an electrical engineer could develop distribution systems for new technologies such as solar arrays or communication technologies. In the building industry and services, an electrical engineer could install and maintain lighting, heating, and ventilation systems. Electrical engineers might also work in the transportation industry, in the production and distribution or power industry, or advance to a project management position.

The Internship

To enter the field of electrical engineering, you need an engineering degree and demonstrated technical skills. You need to learn or at least be familiar with programming languages such as C, C++, and Matlab. You should be able to use CAD tools such as AutoCAD and Sonnet EM software.

An electrical engineering internship will complement your classroom learning by exposing you to real-world applications and cutting-edge technological developments. You’ll have the chance to work with and learn from electrical engineers and use the tools you learned about in the classroom. You’ll also master the specific tools, especially CAD tools, in a particular field, which will set you apart from the competition and allow you to jumpstart your engineering career.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of electrical engineering jobs is expected to remain about flat over the next decade.
