Electronic Engineering Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EE) is a general term for electronic engineering and electrical engineering. Some schools combine electronic engineering with ComputerEngineering (CE). This is called Electrical & Computer Engineering(ECE). Electronic and electrical engineering represents a wide range of engineering fields, including the generation and transmission of strong electricity in electronic engineering in addition to the traditional electronic circuit, communication and other fields.
Electronic and electrical engineering in the United States is offered under the School of Engineering, with more directions: communication and network, signal processing, electronics and integrated circuits, computer science and engineering, system control, photonics and optics, electromagnetics, power technology, materials and devices, biological engineering, microstructure, etc. In terms of application, the school is more inclined to students with electronic and electrical engineering related major background, of course, there are also students majoring in physics, biology and other fields to apply for a change of major, if they can take some EE related courses, they can also apply. The core courses of EE include digital circuit, analog circuit, signal and system, power electronic technology, automatic control theory and so on.
Electronic and electrical engineering is second only to computer science in science and engineering, and the market demand is still quite large. However, with the rapid development of computer science, more and more EE related positions require certain software knowledge, so more and more students choose some CS related courses during their postgraduate study. EE graduates can go to power companies, computer factories, electronic technology groups, and research institutions related to power, etc., and the positions are generally hardware or software engineers or scientific researchers.
