"As the need for electricity to power the many devices that were being fabricated by the mechanical engineers grew, the progression of electrical engineering prospered...The profession started with magnestism and electrical phenomenon, but it has also grown more recently in new directions as new requirements have been imposed by modern society."

Electrical engineering "[designs] and [analyzes] systerms that apply electrical energy." Electrical engineerings "is devoted to the design and analysis of electrical circuits to meet a wide range of purposes, from melting metals to keeping food frozen, from projecting visual images to powering cell phones."



Our Anti-Theft Design was constructed using electrical circuits. An electrical circuits contains electrical componenets including resistance, charge, current, and voltage. Two important laws to consider while constructing elecrical circuits are "Ohm's Law" and "Power Law". Circuits can either be constructed in parallel or series. In addition, switches can be used to "produce magnestism, and the use of electric charge to control the flow of current."
