Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It is subdivided in a wide range of subfields including power engineering, signal processing, electronics, telecommunications radio-frequency engineering, etc. It covers a wide range of areas from devices to systems. The emphasis on practice infused with fundamental science and mathematics offers ample opportunities, both theoretical and experimental, at the forefront of the field and its interdisciplinary applications.
Skills and employment opportunity
Graduate students from Polytech in Electrical Engineering are trained to master and manage the electrical energy, including its production, exploitation and utilization. These engineers are capable of conceiving electronic systems for the management of the electrical energy, with a permanent concern of innovation, productivity and environmental protection. They work in a very wide range of industries and the skills required range from circuit theory to the management skills required of a project manager. The tools and equipment that an individual engineer may need range from simple and top end analyser to sophisticated design and manufacturing software.
