Course Title: ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AS A COURSE.
Electrical Engineering is a branch of engineering and a course that involves the study of applying electricity, electromagnetism,and electronics. to function in various systems, devices, and equipment s . It is used in a variety of industries which include the transportation industry, inventing robots, to mention but a few. Micheal Faraday is the father of electricity he discovered electromagnetic induction in the year 1831
Electrical engineering started in the early 17th century from the year 1880. William Gilbert was the first engineer to give a differentiation between magnetism and static electricity.
