Electricity- how it works and why is it so intriguing? If you have chosen Electrical Engineering to find answers to these questions, you have taken your first step to being an Electrical Engineer. In the graduate and post-graduate level Electrical Engineering course, students learn to design, device, and manage electrical systems and devices that use electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.
Electrical Engineers deal with the technology of electricity during their professional career. So, you might work on a wide range of components, devices, and systems right from microchips to power station generators.
Electrical Engineering Eligibility Criteria
- Candidates willing to pursue Electrical Engineering (BTech) must have 50% marks in aggregate from a recognized school or university or equivalent in class 12 in PCM/PCMB group.
- Candidates who want to pursue Electrical Engineering at post graduate level need to have a BTech degree in electrical engineering from a recognized University.
Critical Skills for Electrical Engineer
For you to pursue a career in electrical engineering, the critical skills one must have included an in-depth understanding of electrical and electronic theory, mathematics, and materials. Having these basic skills enable electrical engineers to design circuits to perform specific functions and meet requirements for safety, reliability, and energy efficiency, and predict how they will behave before a hardware design is implemented.
So, it is only natural that the focal point of studying electrical engineering is learning the core concepts of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism in detail.
To thoroughly learn electrical engineering, you should also know the best books that offer wide coverage to all the topics included in the subject. Here is the list of all the books that should come in handy for learning electrical engineering for the students.
