The most common lines list Electrical Engineering as “The branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity, especially the design and application of circuitry and equipment for power generation and distribution, machine control, and communications.”

The reality is that Electrical Engineers are people who live in a world of jargon that nobody else understands. A situation where rules are many but mistakes can be few. A place where metaphor and simile are required to allow others to comprehend and, despite that fact that electricity lights the world and drives most forms of innovation, a discipline that you can’t see or smell. Then there is the downside…It has a desire to kill you if you touch it.
