Electrical Engineering

  1. 1. Electrical Engineering<br />Team #6 Project: 0<br />Team Leader: John Sullivan<br />Team Members: ShaMaula, Karl Laguerre, Chris Pyman<br />
  2. 2. Electrical Engineering:At a Glance<br />Electrical Engineering is an extremely broad discipline that encompasses all forms and uses of electricity. <br />Electrical Engineers are also responsible for numerous areas of technology as well.<br />
  3. 3. What is Needed to Become an Electrical Engineer?Pre-Collegiate Preparation:<br />A strong background in both Mathematics and Science is a must.<br />taking physics, chemistry, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus should prepare you for college level mathematics and sciences.    <br />
  4. 4. Collegiate Preparation:<br />A B.S. in Engineering will suffice in order to obtain employment, but to further study in the field, perform research, or to teach in the field, a Master’s Degree is needed.<br /> A Doctorate’s Degree is needed to participate in any advanced research. <br />
  5. 5. BS from Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) or other accredited 4-year institution in an engineering curriculum<br />Certification as an "engineer-in-training" as a result of an 8-hour NCEES fundamentals of engineering examination<br />4 years of experience under the direction of a licensed professional engineer<br />Then, you may apply to sit for the examination in the state you plan to practice in<br />Professional Certification (US)<br />
  6. 6. What Does an Electrical Engineer Do?<br />Design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment that includes:<br />Electric motors; machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings; radar and navigation systems; communications systems; and power generation, control, and transmission devices used by electric utilities. <br />Design the electrical systems of automobiles and aircraft. <br />Specialize in areas such as power systems engineering or electrical equipment manufacturing.<br />
  7. 7. What could an average day be like for an Electrical Engineer?:<br />Travel<br />System design calculations<br />Training others or being trained<br />Figuring out how your competitor does something, then figuring out a way to do it better<br />Meetings...all kinds of meetings. some are even interesting.<br />You may spend time in the field, or in the lab, or maybe your office is a cable spool turned on its side in a petrochemical plant...<br />Basically, there is no 'average day<br />A Day in the Life:<br />
  8. 8. Job Outlook<br />According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: Electrical Engineering is expected to experience 2% job growth between 2008 and 2018.<br />Job growth should be spurred by strong demand for electrical devices—including electric power generators, wireless phone transmitters, high-density batteries, and navigation systems.<br />International competition and the use of engineering services performed in other countries will limit employment growth.<br />Electrical engineers working in firms providing engineering expertise and design services to manufacturers should have the best job prospects.<br />
  9. 9. States with Highest Employment Rates for Electrical Engineers<br />Estimated Occupational Employment Statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of May 2009.<br />
