Electrical and Electronic Engineering is perhaps the most rapidly expanding discipline in the world to-day. It is so ubiquitous that there is hardly any aspect of our lives that has not been touched by it.
The discovery of the transistor and advances in semiconductor technology coupled with the development of integrated circuit have revolutionized the way we live and carry-on our daily activities. The often mentioned phrase of the world being ‘a global village’ has come about because of the advances in the electronic technology.
The broad field of Electrical Engineering encompasses; Electrical Power, Electrical Machines, Control, Electronics, Telecommunications, Computer Engineering and several others. The discipline therefore offers the greatest opportunity for future development and lifelong employment for any youth or adult who takes any of the ever expanding area of it as a field of specialization.
