Branches of electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism in all of their forms. 
Whenever you go to flip a light switch in your house or even check the time on your smartphone, it took a series of electrical engineers to make that happen. The everyday things that we take for granted – like being able to turn on a light when it’s dark – are actually the result of hundreds of years worth of work by dedicated engineers.
There are a number of sub disciplines related to electrical engineering, including: 
• Power engineering: deals specifically with electricity as a utility, including the • generation, transmission, and distribution thereof
• Control engineering: deals with the design and implementation of controllers of various systems from commercial airlines to jet propulsion
• Electronic engineering: deals specifically with the design of circuits and their components such as resistors, capacitors, and inductors. This branch of electrical engineering was previously known as “radio engineering.”
• Microelectronics: deals with the design and creation of very small circuits, often requiring chemical fabrication. 
• Signal processing engineering: deals with the analysis and manipulation of both analog and digital signals. 
• Telecommunications: deals with the transmission of data across a channel, including coaxial cables, optical fiber, or space. 
• Instrumentation engineering: deals with the design of measurement devices such as those used on aircraft, involves physics heavily
• Computer engineering: deals not with computer programming but with the design of the electronic components of computer and computer systems.
