What are the differences between electrical engineering and electronics engineering?
Electrical engineering deals with heavy current and high voltage circuits, control, machines, communications, power systems, power electronics, math, and computer technology related courses. Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline that deals with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism. Its practitioners are called electrical engineers.
Electrical engineering is a broad field that encompasses many subfields. Electrical engineering has many subfields dealing with the various aspects of electromagnetism. Some work directly with Maxwell’s equations to manipulate RF signals, some with power, and some with signal manipulation. (Power engineering deals not only with electricity generation, electric power transmission, and electricity distribution but also with electrical circuits and materials (e.g. insulators, semiconductors) that need to withstand high voltages and
Electronics engineering deals with light current and low voltage circuits, control, communications, integrated circuit, signal processing, math and basic courses on power system, power electronics, machines, and computer technology related courses.
Electronics engineers design and test electrical networks (more commonly known as circuits) that take advantage of electromagnetic properties of electrical components or discrete/elements (such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, diodes, semiconductors) to achieve the desired functionality. One of several ubiquitous examples is the tuner circuit, which allows the user of a radio to filter out all but a single station, corresponding to a desired signal frequency (such as those in AM and FM radios).
