Define/ what is electronics engineering - design and develop everyday devices like the mobile phone, portable music devices and computers. Electronic engineers continually improve the quality of our lives through the development of new equipment in the fields of medicine, communications, computing, security, business and entertainment.

Details of electronics engineering

  • Electronics engineering deals with electronic devices, behavior and study of electrons in different conditions, electronic systems and so on.
  •  Electronics engineering requires electrical power as a driving force, whereas electrical engineering in incomplete without the study of electrons included in it.
  • The electronic engineering also deals with various other fields of technology such as the instrumentation, which deals with various electronic instruments, telecommunications deals with the communication techniques and so on.
  • The prevalence of electronic engineering in various types of security systems and communication systems. It is used excessively in security forces such as radar, sonar, laser, which are electronic discharges that behave in different ways under different directions and conditions.
  • There is a slight difference though the two types of engineering are interlinked and a part of each other.

 Difference between electrical and electronic engineering

  •  Electrical Engineering deal with the problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power generation and transmission and motor control. Electronic Engineering - deals with the study of small-scale electronic systems including computers and integrated circuits. It includes the design and building of electronic circuits based on the flow of charge through different materials
