I am not a fan of the term “electrical engineering”. I think there are two distinct but overlapping disciplines in electrical engineering; mechanical and electrical engineering. These two concepts are often used interchangeably, but they are not interchangeable. Mechanical engineering looks at how the mechanical system works and electrical engineering looks at the electrical system.
The term electrical engineering is much older than its counterpart mechanical engineering. In fact, even before the advent of the electric motor, people were using the term to describe just about everything that they thought was mechanical and mechanical engineering was just another term for electrical engineering. As you can probably tell, it’s not exactly my thing.
There are two basic types of electrical engineering and it’s important to understand them.The first type is the most familiar to us and it’s called “electrical.” The second type is what we know now as electrical engineering. Electrical systems are all about how energy moves through a device. Electrical systems go up and down, through and around.
Electrical engineering is, of course, a subset of electrical engineering. But in fact most electrical engineers are mechanical engineers with the added benefit of electrical engineering. As a mechanical engineer, you apply physics principles and techniques to your design to make it work. With electrical engineers, you apply engineering principles to your design and make it work. Electrical engineers go up and down.
Electrical engineers go through a device. Mechanical engineers go up and down. Electrical engineers move through a device.
While electrical engineers go up and down, mechanical engineers go up and down. But electrical engineers move through a device. They apply physics principles and techniques to their design to make it work. With electrical engineers, you apply engineering principles to your design and make it work. Electrical engineers go up and down.
I always think it’s funny that electrical engineers take such pride in being mechanical engineers. I mean what is the difference between a mechanical engineer and an electrical engineer? In a word, it’s very little. They are the exact same thing.
Electrical engineers are highly skilled at making things work. They spend a significant amount of time on the design. They are the ones who get the job done. They are not afraid to ask questions, they are not afraid to be wrong. They are highly efficient. They do not care about the reputation of their coworkers. They are extremely conscientious, and are hard workers. They are a bit of a self-deprecating group. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty.
Electrical engineering is the art of making things work. It’s a specialized field of engineering that’s concerned with making things work better. However, electrical engineers are not good at making things work well without a lot of effort. It’s a little more complicated than that. Electrical engineers are not great at getting things done. They are also really bad at getting things done. Electrical engineering is a bit of a misnomer. Electrical engineering does not necessarily mean “electrical engineering.
Engineers are people who use tools to solve problems. Electrical engineers are people who use tools to solve problems. In the context of electrical engineering, the term is used to describe engineers who work with electricity. However, electrical engineering is very much a subset of engineering. Electrical engineers are not involved in the process of laying cable, for instance, and they do not work as a team. Electrical engineers do not have to worry about the intricacies of wiring. Electrical engineers just need to solve problems.
