Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity. It involves the study and application of physics and mathematics in electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.
Electrical engineers design electrical equipment and electronic products - from microchips & computers to electric power networks - and any other products that process information and transmit energy.
The primary tasks of Electrical Engineers, say in designing an electronics product is circuit designing or Schematic diagram.
Circuit designers have the responsibility of designing electronic circuits that make up electrical systems. Other responsibilities circuit designers have include designing different types of circuits and boards and creating signal processing filters. The minimum educational requirement is a bachelor of science in engineering, some employers require a master's of electrical engineering. Since circuit designs change frequently, this career requires a great amount of continuing education to keep up with technology updates.
Electrical Circuit desingers work in a variety of engineering industries including aerospace, automotive, chemical, construction, defence, electronics, consumer goods, marine, materials & metals, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, power generation, rail, telecom, and utilities.Because circuit technology is constantly changing, new and updated circuits are continuously needed. For this reason, circuit designers should expect good employment opportunities in years to come.
The Role of CAD
An Electrical CAD software can automate all design tasks and facilitate drafting productivity. You can easily create electrical and electronic diagrams, schematics, control circuit diagrams, and documentation.
It would be as easy as placing electrical symbols and attaching the wires. You can then number the symbols, wires and tag components - doing so manually will be time-consuming and will not be accurate. CAD software will have a library of all electrical symbols, and they catch problems instantly.
In short, CAD software can save your time, reduce errors and enhance design communication.
