2 What is Electrical Engineering  Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Electrical engineers can work on power systems, circuits, telecommunications, and more

3 A Few Sub-Disciplines in Detail Power Power engineering deals with the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity as well as the design of a range of related device. Median pay - $84,000/year Control Control engineering focuses on the modeling of a diverse range of dynamic systems and the design of controllers that will cause these systems to behave in the desired manner. Median pay - $83,000/year Electronics Electronic engineering involves the design and testing of electronic circuits that use the properties of components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes and transistors to achieve a particular functionality. Median pay - $78,000/year

4 Sub-Disciplines CommunictionComputer Hardware Computer ScienceControl Systems ElectromagneticsElectronic Design OpticsPower Systems Remote Sensing and Space SystemsSemiconductor Devices Signal and Image Processing The Electrical Engineer major offers many areas of specialization

5 Education  The education requirement to become a Electrical Engineer is to obtain a bachelor’s degree.  Electrical Engineers make up 11% of the engineering workforce.

6 Career progression  There are no set or easily defined routes for career progression for electrical engineers. It can be a matter of choice and preferred specialist area. Some decide to stay in a purely engineering role or work in research and design (R&D), but other options include:  going into project management;  taking on a management role;  an academic career;  becoming a consultant or contractor

7 Breakthroughs in Electrical Engineering

8 Smart Pens  Blind students are about to speed up their learning curve thanks to a new "smart" pen. Did you know, just three characters of Braille take up an inch on a page? This new pen can condense that information into just one smart dot. This is made possible by sensors and chips in the pen

9 Artificial hand that feels to the touch  European researchers have created a robotic hand that gave an amputee a sense of touch he hadn't felt in a decade. It works by sending electrical signals through the remaining nerves in his hand to his brain. So he can feel shapes, textures and pressure.

10 suntracker  The purpose of the wayne state suntracker project is to develop technology for calibrating solar cells in the stratrosphere under near air mass zero (NAM0) conditions using low-cost helium balloons and state-of-the-art communication technologies

11 How to become a licensed engineer  Interships  Pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam  Minimum of four years of experience after obtaining bachelors  Some other exams may required for sub-disciplines

12 What Wayne State Electrical Engineering degree gets you  an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data  an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams  Graduates will have computer skills for effective use in engineering. They will possess a working knowledge of modern programming languages, as well as operating systems and software packages for design, analysis, and simulation  Graduates will be able to work hands-on in laboratories with state- of-the-art facilities and equipment to accomplish assigned tasks and projects

13 Senior Electrical Engineers  Move into management or administrative positions.  Requires licensing and often a masters.  Some engineers with masters or PhD’s go on to teach or do research

14 Opportunities  From 2010-20 the Electrical Engineering field is estimated to grow by 4%  The student org, ieee, provides additional networking opportunities to future Electrical Engineers.  The average civil engineer’s starting salary in 2012 was $89,630, or $43.09 per hour
