My Major is Electrical Engineering

1. Electrical engineering - sometimes referred to as electrical and electronic engineering - is an engineering field that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It became an identifiable occupation in the late of the nineteenth century after commercialization of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply. Traditionally electrical engineering is considered to deal with the problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission and motor control, whereas electronic engineering comprises small-scale electronic systems including computers and integrated circuits. Recently the difference has not become so sharp by the growth of power electronics. Now this dynamic, hi-tech branch of engineering covers the range of fields including electric power and machinery, computers and electronics, communications and control.

2. Working in this direction you may have a specialized job doing anything from light and power to designing and installing new hardware platforms; conducting networking and automation; operating virtual enterprises, internet and fiber-optics. Typical work environments include production and manufacturing industries. There are plenty of well-paid, cutting-edge jobs there, and the diversity of jobs allows you to choose the one that suits you best.

3. Electrical engineers must have at least a Bachelor's degree with the major in electrical engineering (a Bachelor of Science, a Bachelor of Engineering) for almost all entry-level engineering jobs. The next step in the career is to get the license of Professional Engineer. You have to get the upgraded professional skill and the required working experience. In the USA and Canada only a licensed engineer provides engineering work for public and private clients.

4. Companies seeking to recruit new graduates frequently take part in the "Milk round". This means they visit universities and colleges, invite students to attend presentations and conduct interviews with those who are interested in employment. There is competition to recruit the most able students. The "virtual milk round" is where this system of recruitment is provided over the Internet.

5. Your curriculum vitae (CV) is one of the most important documents presented to a potential employer. It lists academic achievements and work experience with relevant personal information. It must be written to hold the employer's attention and provide the essential information. Employers often ask applicants to supply a covering letter with their CV. This allows the applicant to go into more details as to why they are suitable for the job and they have the opportunity to address the employer on a more personal level.
