History[change | edit source]
The first universities in the world taught philosophy and then science. With more learning they had to start teaching new parts of these sciences. When humans made industry, we needed to study mathematics, physics and chemistry to help support it. When electricity was used more, they had to make a new branch called electrical engineering. Big subjects in electrical engineering are power generation, automation and control, semiconductors, and information technology (high frequency and computer). These change in different countries. Since then electrical engineering has allowed us to study new forms of engineering, such as electronic engineering and software engineering.
