Electrical engineers are also often educated in specializations, which makes you worth more to some companies and departments than others. Some of these specializations can vary from control systems, microprocessors, signal processing, telecommunication, et cetera. However, all of these specializations hold similar responsibilities with applying their scientific knowledge to create goods, products, installations and services to better the world around them. The nature of engineering brings forth a significant amount of overlap between fields such as mechanical and computer engineering. Engineers can apply their expertise to other fields from consulting and legal affairs, to education and human resources.
The primary departments seen with electrical engineering are Research and Development, (R&D) testing, manufacturing, management and maintenance. (CC: Daily Life) In the field of R&D, electrical engineers begin with an idea usually brought on by necessity, such as the need for a new kind of battery technology to support a power-hungry device with powerful hardware. They then design and discuss prototypes and their viability for production or cost effectiveness. After said research is complete electrical engineers work to apply the knowledge or technology in a practical design. This is usually done in the later stages of development. In some cases, R&D is separated into both of their respective fields, typically in a larger company or organization. (CC: Daily Life)
