How many electrical engineers usually work at one place?
and what kind of places hire electrical engineers?
Question answered by Ngineer
"How many electrical engineers usually work at one place?" That depends on many things - the type and size of the company, their payroll, workload, etc.
"what kind of places hire electrical engineers?" Again, that is very open ended, especially since electrical engineering has become so broad (it's much more than electric utilities), but electrical engineers work at places like:
-Computer-oriented companies: Microsoft, Dell, etc.
-Appliance companies: TVs, washers, dryers, motors, etc.
-Oil and Gas oriented companies: Baker Hughes, TransOcean, Schlumberger, etc.
-Engineering companies: Fluor, Mustang Engineering, CH2M Hill, MEP firms, Architectural/Engineering (A/E) firms, etc.
-Governments: Dept of Transportation, Facilities and Construction Departments, etc.
many many more. Too broad to cover all the places.
Is it possible to find a list of electrical engineers in NJ?
Is it possible to find a list of electrical engineers in NJ?
The IEEE website doesn't publish a membership like the NJSPE website does. Are there any other societies for electrical engineers in this location?
Level Headed, I hope
Question answered by SAWGIRL
try these sites they provide names for electrical engineers in NJ also contact the association of Electrical engineers in NJ they may provide a list of members or where to find one.
this may help
What kinds of things can electrical engineers build in the practical world?
If I got my EE degree and then decided to start a business, selling for example electric guitars, can I do that? (meaning will I have enough knowledge to do that?)
I guess what I'm really confused about is what exactly are the things that electrical engineers can do, please give me many examples if possible. I'm searching the net and everyone speaks about it to generally, like 'they make circuits' I want to know like they are making circuits for what kinds of objects?
Question answered by Special K
An electrical engineer can build the following things: (obviously, not alone, but as part of a company, or in a factory)
Power plants (gas, hydro, wind, etc.)
Anything that requires electrical power: industrial plants, factories, pump systems, amusement parks, etc.
I might add that you do not really "build" these things, but rather you participate in the planning, design and supervision of the construction of them.
You not only take part in the building of these things, you can also work in the improvement, repair or overhaul of all these apparatus. You can also work in the planning and operation of large electrical systems, in the design of maintenance plans for distribution networks, in the operation of interconnected systems (including designing protective systems, load dispatch, transient study) and many other things.
As for selling electric guitars, you don't need to be an electrical engineer, you just need training on sales. Some guitar-playing ability would be of help.
What areas of electrical engineering are there?
I just want to know some of the different things electrical engineers do. Not day to day things but actually different careers in electrical engineering. Also what is the highest paying area in electrical engineering thanks.
Question answered by Dr. Watkin,. I presume
The two main electrical engineering disciplines are:
1. heavy electrical = power systems engineering
This includes Utility Distribution Systems design - substations, transmission lines, transformers etc. all the way through to industrial and commercial installations (including lighting, heating, aircon and ventilation design) and even domestic distribution lines and cables and unusual domestic installations. Also Generation Systems design aka Power Stations such as thermal, wind, solar and specialist areas like nuclear power engineering.
2. light electrical = electronic engineering
As well as conventional analog and digital system design, this includes an ever increasing diverse range of fields such as mechatronics, autotronics, microcontroller systems, bio-medical engineering design, even some aspects of environmental engineering such as building energy efficiency engineering.
In my experience most areas can be well-paid, but the "niche" areas like bio-medical engineering are the highest paid of all.
What jobs make more money than an electrical engineer?
I am not sure what to get into but I want to have more money than electrical engineers because I am in a competition with my friend. What are the jobs that pay more than that career?
Question answered by C7S
Any field of engineering can make the same or more than electrical engineers depeinding on company, location, experience, education, certifications, and job responsibilities.
Mechanical, Industrial, Civil, Chemical, Aerospace, etc.
Doctor or Surgeons can also make more than EE's.
You can try to become famous. Some people earn money for doing nothing. Just being famous. ex. Kim Kardashian, everyone on MTV and E! shows and commercials.
How hard and long does it take to become a Electrical Engineer?
Any electrical engineers, how do you like your job?
Question answered by Tony W
4 years + on the job experience whilst studying, 2 years working, for a national phone company.
I found it boring and don't work in that area anymore.
You have to have the patience of a saint, for this line of work. But don't let that deter you from trying.
A piece of advice, If your not already good at Honours Maths & Physics, Then you might want to look at another area of Engineering.
How Do Civil engineers and electrical engineers work together ?
what are some examples of how civil engineers interact with electrical engineers ? and why its important to coordinate each other work in a project
Question answered by kasab
Electrical appliances and cables have to be fixed on some kind of structures with appropriate shelters. Heavy electrical appliances need to be installed on strong reinforced concrete foundations.
If I switch to electrical engineering, what sort of jobs can I expect to see?
I'm currently a first-year civil engineering/prearchitecture student in Iowa, and I've been strongly considering switching to electrical engineering since I enjoy my C-programming class; I've even taken up Java on the side and I've been studying more about generic electrical hardware components. My question is if I DO switch to electrical engineering, what will my career be like? IE: what are the entry level jobs like? What are some of the day-to-day operations? What different types of electrical engineers are there?
Thanks for the help!

Electrical engineering is one of the most in demand fields in Engineering right now. You can expect to have much better luck in employment with this major than with Civil or Industrial.
How much do aeronautical and electrical engineers with a B.D. or more usually make in a year?
how much do aeronautical engineers and electrical engineers usually get paid when they have a Bachelors Degree or more.
I would like to get a B.D. or an advanced degree in Aeronautical or Electrical Engineering from a college or university and would like to know about how much they get paid and what kind of work they do on a day to day basis. Thanks for any help!
Question answered by Big Blue
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, aeronautical engineers make around $96K after 10-15 years experience, and electrical engineers make around $86K after the same time.
As for day to day work, there are 70,000 aerospace engineers and 150,000 electrical engineers and every answer is different. I'll poll every one of them, compile the results in a stack of books around 50 feet tall, and get back to you in about 20 years. I hope you're not in a hurry for the answer. While I am doing that, here's a link with a very brief answer.
Is the education for an electronics engineer the same for an electrical engineer?
I want to be an electronics engineer, but a lot of the colleges/universities in my area only have degrees for electrical engineers. Do these careers have the same education? If not, which classes do I need to take?
Question answered by billrussell42
It's all terminology. Many colleges mean electronics engineering when they say electrical engineering.
Look at the curriculum for any schools you are interested in, that should be the first thing you do, not ask questions on Yahoo. They all have web sites.
