Electrical Engineering – An exciting field

Electricity is all around us. More than the cables and towers which power the grids and our daily lives, electricity is found in nature, objects and humans. From the lightning that illuminates storm clouds and the shock at our fingertips when touching something charged to our central nervous system, electricity is inescapable.

When it comes to academics, electricity is dominated by the fields of science and engineering. In the professional sphere, the electrical engineering field is the key applicator of electrical principles. Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that relates to the study and use of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. As an occupation or hobby, electrical engineering requires a deep and sophisticated understanding of the components of how electricity can be used and manipulated. Electrical engineering courses and the many other courses related to this field, teaches the individual to work with and manipulate this amazing property of nature and to do so in a safe, controlled manner.

Training and Courses in Electrical Engineering

For professional electrical engineers and electricians, training is a critical aspect of securing and maintaining work in the industry. Electrical engineers are often required to complete undergraduate and possible master degree programmes with additional training throughout their careers. On the other end of the spectrum, electricians are able to work hands-on in the maintenance, troubleshooting and management of electrical systems with specialised vocational qualifications.

Beginners in the field may start with formal training in electrical theory. Advanced courses can span from comprehensive lab workshops to seminars on the latest advancements in theory and technology. For electrical engineers, apprenticeship positions are also available as a flexible and hands-on way to build new skills and gain valuable experience. Courses tailored to electricians will cover topics such as electrical theory, health and safety on the job, electronics and electrical installation, maintenance and inspection. Comprehensive training packages will typically include practical activities performing electrical work in tandem with theoretical tuition. By combining the two critical components of understanding, delegates will develop a holistic understanding of electricity and its purposes.

The professional has an endless number of study options to choose from. Electrical engineering courses range from degree courses to masters, PhD's and professorships. There are also countless other courses providing speicialisation in specific fields ranging from technical to managerial and HR. The MBA for example, is a popular option for qualified engineers as many choose to take a more hands on approach to running an organisation.

Related Areas of Expertise

Professionals with technical knowledge of electrical engineering have the option to branch out into numerous specialised areas of the sector. Among these, are electronics development, power generation, system installation (such as Heating System Installation) alarm systems, fire alarm installation, telecoms, utilities and more. If you would like to continue in your field as you develop skills to expand, take a look at the complete list of online engineering courses.
