Electrical engineers design, develop and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment. They can work on any one of the millions of products that use electricity – from medical instruments to microwaves. Their skills can be applied in many disciplines and they play an increasingly important role in the transport sector. As an electrical engineer, you could focus on:
- Developing airline navigation systems;
- Improving the performance of electric motors, which are now used more than ever in the electric car industry.
- Your work would improve the efficiency and usability of electric cars, thereby helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector.
