Electrical engineering is a real-world application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. Electrical Engineers work on developing, designing, testing and supervising the manufacturing of electrical equipment. This includes electric motors, communications systems, radar systems, power generation equipment and more.
As engineering goes, electrical is one of the newer branches, dating back to the late 19th century. Electrical Engineers work on a range of devices, systems and components from tiny microchips to huge power station generators.
In more recent years, Electrical Engineers have had the opportunity to help us reduce our carbon footprint by developing renewable energy solutions such as smart energy grids and electric vehicles. If anything is a real-world device that produces, uses or conducts electricity, it will most likely have been designed by an Electrical Engineer.
Some famous Electrical Engineers throughout history include Thomas Edison who invented the electric light bulb, George Westinghouse with the alternating current, Nikola Tesla who designed the induction motor and Philo T. Farnsworth who invented the television. These electrical innovators turned concepts into pioneering practical devices and systems which greatly helped initiate the modern age.
CAL International is a modern engineering consultancy that combines high-quality traditional engineering principles with cutting edge technology to provide innovative solutions. Electronic engineering sits at the interface between the two and it is for this reason that we have such a strong electronics design and production division. At CAL, we specialise in the design, firmware development and production of cutting edge printed circuit boards to solve the most unique challenges.
