Electrical engineers, abbreviated as EE, design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment. Electrical & Electronic engineers design things such as power systems, electronics/microelectronics, signal processing, instrumentation & control systems, computers, and computer networks.

Electrical Engineering Subtopics
Electric Wire Materials
- Copper electrical wire - Copper (Cu) is considered the standard in wiring. Most homes and appliances use copper for two reasons. It is easy to mold or bend and it is a good conductor. Copper is rather easy to come by but not as easy as other conductor metals.
- Aluminum electrical wire - Aluminum (Al) is also easy to mold and bend but less of a conductor than copper. If you decide to use aluminum wire that will carry the same amount of electricity as a copper wire, the wire needs to have a larger diameter. Since aluminum is more abundant than copper, it makes it the cheaper of the two.
- Silver electrical wire - Silver (Ag) is the best conductor of electricity for high temperatures. However, it is hard to bend and expensive.
- Alloys in electrical wire - In manufacturing, an alloy may sometimes be used. Aluminum and copper can be used for cost and conductibility.

- Amp - Amp is a unit of current.
- Breaker - An automatic switching device that disconnect the power to a circut when the current or heat exceeds a certain level for a certain amount of time.
- Conductor - A material through which heat passes.
- Current - The rate of flow of electricity in a circuit, measured in amperes.
- Horsepower - A measure of power or the rate of doing work.
- Ohm - A unit of resistance.
- Ohm's law - The relationships between power, voltage, current, and resistance.
- Power - The rate of doing work and is measured by the amount of foot pounds of work done in a particular unit of time.
- Resistance - The ability to resist or prevent the flow of current.
- Switch - A device that opens and closes electrical circuit.
