Electrical Engineering is a diverse, fast growing and exciting field of engineering. Electrical Engineering is arguably the widest field in all of engineering, and is represented in virtually all sectors of modern industry. With applications that span the very small, such as nanotechnology and implanted biomedical devices, to the very large, such as the exploration of outer space and study of remote stars, Electrical Engineering has been and continues to be a corner stone in every new technical development in our life. Electrical Engineering includes power generation, transmission and distribution, control, communication systems, electronics, instrumentation, robotics, biomedical engineering and many others. Electrical engineers are involved in almost every part of our day to day life. The Profession of Electrical Engineering is the main driver behind generation and delivery of electricity to our streets, homes, factories, offices, hospitals, schools, and many other places. Radio, TV, cellular phones, computers, wireless communication and medical equipment such as CT and MRI scanners, are just few areas electrical engineering has helped flourish. The technology that surrounds us will continue to expand and electrical engineers are leading the way.
Electrical engineering is a versatile discipline which offers a wide range of employment opportunities. Almost every industry and every company needs services of Electrical Engineers. The job of an Electrical Engineer usually involves design, feasibility studies, cost analysis studies, installation, operation, and maintenance of plants, processes or equipment. All these areas are in great need for electrical engineers in the fast growing economy of the state of Qatar. Electrical engineering graduates find employment in Qatar in the booming industries like power generation and distribution, gas and petroleum industry, chemical and steel companies, consumer electronics, telecommunications, biomedicine and many others. The opportunities outside Qatar are in similar industries and beyond. Think of companies like Microsoft, IBM, AT&T, Siemens, Nokia, ABB, General Electric, Nokia, CISCO, Alcatel-Lucent, Intel, Sony, and many more whose core business is Electrical Engineering.
