Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. The Electrical Engineering degree is offered at top electrical engineering schools nationally. The field first became an identifiable occupation in the late nineteenth century after commercialization of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply. Electrical Engineering Majors cover a wide range of subtopics including power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications.
"Computer engineers specialize in the design of computers, computer systems, and other digitally based hardware devices. Computer engineers must also be proficient in software design. Applications of computer engineering can be found in communications systems, transportation vehicles, robotics, and consumer electronics, to name just a few."
