An electrical engineer is someone who plans, designs and develops new electrical equipment. Electrical engineer also evaluate electrical systems, products, components, and applications by designing and conducting research programs; applying knowledge of electricity and materials.
They solve problems and tests equipment. Electrical Engineers work with all kinds of electric and electronic devices, from the smallest pocket devices, radars, navigation systems, wiring and lighting in buildings and other kinds of electrical systems and also huge power station generators. Electrical engineering deals with electricity, electro-magnetism and electronics.
