Electrical engineering is one of the most popular engineering disciplines with a wide range of areas of study: power systems, microelectronics, communications and signal processing, embedded systems, control systems, and others. Most electrical and electronics engineering positions require at minimum a Bachelor of Science degree, but almost all major engineering colleges offer graduate degree programs as well, often up to a Doctorate’s degree.
