The birth of electrical engineering as a discipline can be traced back to the time of Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell. In 1882, Edison opened the first commercial power plant in the USA, after which the demand for skilled workers in this area grew. In the autumn of the same year, MIT established the first electrical-engineering course.
Before the Second World War, electrical engineering was commonly known as radio engineering, with its main focus on the modern aspects of communication at the time. After this, the discipline grew to include computers and microprocessors.
Today, the topic, known as electrical engineering, can be studied at universities across the world. Examples of modules in a master’s degree in electrical engineering include:
Electrical Machines and Drives
Power System Dynamics and Quality of Supply
Advanced Integrated Electronics
Mobile Networks and Physical Layer Protocol
Sensor and Measurement Technology
Techniques for Research and Industry
