Electrical engineering deals with electricity—from the tiniest computer circuitry to large-scale electronics systems. They design, develop, and manufacture equipment that produces and distributes electricity, as well as equipment such as electric motors and machinery. They may also design and develop devices made up of electronic components. Work could be in consumer electronics and optics, power efficiency and storage, telecommunications devices, broadcasting systems, analog circuitry, or many other areas.
