Electrical engineers apply the basic sciences of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and materials science to control and transform energy and information in ways that are vital to the operation of modern society. Electrical engineers design huge power-generating systems in dams as well as tiny electronic circuits that keep spacecraft on correct trajectory a billion miles from Earth. They create the electronic components that run computers, television and VCR sets, CD systems, and automated factories; improve the transmission of messages by laser light through fiber optics, and work to develop computers that mimic the functions of some biological systems. Typical career paths: The study of engineering fosters the development of quantitative, analytical, and problem-solving skills which are very useful in many different career areas. On average, 70% to 80% of graduates with a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree choose employment in private industry; federal, state, and local government agencies; and in private practice. Approximately 15% to 20% of the electrical engineering graduates will choose to continue their education toward a master’s degree or Ph.D., and a few graduates will choose to attend law, medical, or business schools. Students who earn advanced degrees in engineering usually pursue a career in advanced research or as a faculty member in a college of engineering.
