The Electrical Engineering deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics converters, motors, panels and various circuits, which includes all large-scale electrical systems mostly, power transmission, motors and control drives. Electrical Engineering has gone from simple electric circuits of Edison and Tesla through Rocket science of Bode and Nyquist to the complexity of IC. The demand of electrical energy in our country is increasing at a very fast rate and this necessitates the need to generate more power. Thus, the role of electrical engineers becomes all the more important in today’s scenario.
