Career options for Electrical (EE, EEE, or EIC) Engineer
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS are concerned with the generation, distribution, use of
electrical power, control and instrumentation. They work with equipment that produces and
distributes electricity such as generators, transmission lines, transformers, lighting and
wiring in buildings. They design electric motors, machinery and ignition systems which are
required by automobiles, aircrafts and all kinds of motorized vehicles and equipments
Brief information about tools to be learned by EEE graduates:
PLC-SCADA: PLCs Along With Certain Other Necessary Ingredients Like Sensors, Motors, Actuators, Valves, Conveyors, Boilers, SCADA Systems, Computers & Many More, Makes A Real Automated Manufacturing Plant.
MATLAB: More than a million engineers and scientists in industry and academia use MATLAB. It is a powerful language of technical computing.
Labview: It is system design software that provides engineers and scientists with the tools needed to create and deploy measurement and control systems through unpreceden-ted hard ware integration.
ECAD: It is created for electrical control systems. This tool includes all the functionality of Auto- CAD plus a complete set of electrical CAD features.
PSCAD: It is software developed for analyzing and designing Analog, Digital Electronic and Electrical circuits and Power Electronic systems also.
Mi-power: Mi-power is a highly interactive user-friendly based power system analysis package.
dSPACE: It is a Prototype hardware and software. Industries like automotive, aerospace, defence, commercial and many others rely on dSPACE systems to develop and test electronic control units.
EMTP-RV (Electromagnetic tran-sient program): It is for simulation and analysis of power system tran-sients.
ARM: It is a family of instruction set architectures for computer proce-ssors based on a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architecture developed by British company ARM Holdings.
A RISC-based computer design approach means ARM processors require significantly fewer transistors than typical processors in average computers.
