Electrical Engineering deals with the application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism towards developing and deploying production, generation, and distribution of electrical energy systems. Its scope continues to expand in India as per capita availability of energy is still very low in the country
Energy along with the environment are major areas of concern as well as of activities for human beings and their importance is not likely to come down in days to come. The activities in the area are dominated by the development of Intelligent Grids, Power and Grid Control Systems, High Voltage Systems, Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Management and Pollution issues etc.
The complexity of the field leads to the considerable scope of higher education and further specializations within or outside the country. The no. of programmes and the variety available from various institutions in the country is very large.
Much of the world does not separate electrical engineering from electronics engineering and that adds to additional possibilities of new careers at the intersection of two disciplines.
