Electrical Engineering (EE) is an umbrella term covering a wide range of engineering fields related to electricity, electromagnetism, and electronics.  Since EE is built on the previous scientific knowledge about these natural phenomena, it both continues the research on the fundamental questions from the academic perspective and investigates the possibility of applying that knowledge.  Ever since the 19th century and the development of electric power systems along with the first telecommunications devices, electrical engineering has played an important (some would say crucial) part in technological development all around the world. Although people mostly associate EE with general-purpose computers, it is only one of the several most common subdisciplines: computer engineering, power engineering, electronics, telecommunications, control systems, and signal processing. In fact, the objects in EE greatly vary in scale: on one hand, engineers deal with integrated circuits, i.e. microchips, and on the other hand with design and control of water turbines for hydropower plants.

Electrical engineering is a starting point for many other industry and research specializations – primarily related to power engineering, system engineering, electronics, signal processing and telecommunications – therefore the courses include some or all of the following topics:

 

  • Fundamentals of mathematics: calculus, linear algebra, probability theory, statistics
  • Fundamentals of electrical engineering
  • Electrostatics, electrodynamics, electromagnetism
  • Programming languages (C/C++, Python, MATLAB, VHDL/Verilog, R, Assembler, etc.)
  • Information theory
  • Power engineering
    • Power generation, transmission and distribution
    • Machines and transformers
    • Power electronic converters
    • Testing, commissioning and maintenance of electrical equipment
    • High voltage engineering
    • Power electronics
  • Automatics
  • Control system engineering
    • Control theory
    • System modeling and analysis
    • Controllers
  • Laplace and z-transform

  • Signal Processing
    • Image processing
    • Audio and speech processing
    • Biomedical signal processing
    • Time series analysis
  • Fourier analysis: Fourier transform (FT), discrete Fourier transform (DFT), short-time Fourier transform (STFT)
  • Computer Systems
    • Computer vision
    • Operating systems
    • Compilers
    • Coding and cryptography
  • Economics for engineers
  • Entrepreneurship

There is almost no need to emphasize the importance and presence of electrical engineering in the everyday world around us. Modern communications that started with the telephone and now are primarily done by the internet wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for explorations in this field. Let us consider what you are reading right now! It wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for consumer electronics and microelectronic circuits present inside your phone and on our servers. Further, those circuits require electrical energy to function, so it needs to be generated and transferred from the power plants. Finally, to enable the data transmission over the internet, we require physical cables designed using wave propagation theory, various routers and switches in between, and TCP/IP communication protocols on the application layer.

Apart from the materials supplied by your school, there is a vast number of online books, presentations, and lectures to get a better understanding or further explore electrical engineering. Let’s first start with a few MOOC from various academic institutions:

 

  • Coursera offers various electrical engineering topics.
  • A comprehensive, step-by-step course is offered from Khan Academy, taking you from a general introduction all the way to making home robots.
  • A number of EE classes from several universities can be found here.
  • edX has courses on electronics.
  • Starting course in EE from MIT.
  • MIT’s introductory class in electronics, signals and measurement can be found here
  • A Series of EE lectures can be found at Yale.
  • A course focused on topics relevant to alternative energy sources, such as solar power (English with Mandarin transcripts) can be found on this link.

...and many others.

Some miscellaneous resources that are also good to have in mind:

 

 

Thanks to the diverse and extensive base of tutors available on our website, we offer specialized help in any of the mentioned subtopics. So far, we have assisted students in problems ranging from more formal requests like derivations from Maxwell’s equations, antenna construction or DC/AC circuit analysis, to more practical questions such as programming a simple microcontroller or reducing noise in medical images.

 

To fulfill our tutoring mission of online education, our college homework help and online tutoring centers are standing by 24/7, ready to assist college students who need homework help with all aspects of electrical engineering. Our engineering tutors can help with all your projects, large or small, and we challenge you to find better online electrical engineering tutoring anywhere.

Question of the Week

If an address bus needs to be able to address four devices, how many conductors will be required?  What if each of those devices also needs to be able to talk back to the I/O control device? The solution of the previous question of the week can be seen below. The maximum aggregate I/O transfer rate of the system is equal to: 700Kbystes/s + 700 Kbytes...
