What are the mundane tasks of electrical engineering? I know that every career has the best parts, in the case of electrical engineering, for me it would probably be doing math and designing circuits, and every profession has its worst and most mundane parts. What are the elements of electrical engineering that you don't like to do?
An electrical engineer specializes in the physics and mathematics of electricity, electromagnetism, and electronics to design and develop new electrical equipment and systems, to solve problems, and to test equipment.
Electrical engineers can work on various projects and do different tasks, from designing household appliances, to designing large-scale electrical telecommunication systems, electrical power stations, and satellite communications systems
Electrical engineering specifically deals with electricity, electro-magnetism and electronics. It also covers power, control systems, telecommunications, and signal processing.
Electrical engineers work in various industries and the skills required also vary. These skills can range from basic circuit theory to those required to be a project manager.
Based on online resources. An electrical engineer's job duties may require:
Evaluating electrical systems, products, components, and applications
Designing and conducting research programs
Applying knowledge of electricity and materials
Confirming system's and components' capabilities by designing testing methods and properties
Developing electrical products by studying customer requirements
Researching and testing manufacturing and assembly methods and materials
Developing manufacturing processes by designing and modifying equipment
Assuring product quality by designing electrical testing methods
Testing finished products and system capabilities
Preparing product reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends
Providing engineering information by answering questions and requests
Maintaining product and company reputation by complying with federal and state regulations
Maintaining product data base by writing computer programs and entering data
There are many sub disciplines in electrical engineering:
Signal Processing Engineer
Power Systems Engineer
Control System Engineer
I did my undergrad in electrical engineering and ended up settled in wireless telecommunications field.
When i was in college, i didn't like Electronics Subject as it was hard for me or i didn't bother to make it simple.
Hope this helps and wish you all success in your future endeavors!!
The precise definition of the product can be a lengthy and sometimes tedious process as the requirements and cost are balanced to meet the function. Mechanical requirements can constrain the electrical design. Cost constraints can cause frustration but perhaps should be considered a challenge asking for creative solutions. Firmware and software can take a long time to be developed and validated. Internal product testing and then agency qualification such as for UL and other industry agencies can be a long process.
It's important to realize that there are many important aspects to a project and that you should embrace and contribute to the overall success. A good company will manage your talents and interests efficiently, but engineers with an open perspective will have better careers.
If you find a career that is exciting all of the time, please let me know.
