Electrical Engineering


Originally this branch was called "electrical engineering", and was one of the precursors of the scope of engineering fields. The change of name to "electrical engineering" was necessary with the expansion of the topics discussed and studied, such as the electronic components within the electrical equipment, which made it necessary to adjust the training programs of this specialization.

The electrical engineering separates the early twentieth century from engineering industrial or mechanical, coinciding with the spread of the distribution of electricity. Electrical engineering from engineering was born in the sixties and seventies electronic engineering, the development of telecommunication systems such as radio and television. In the nineties of the twentieth century from the Bachelor of Electronic Engineering born telecommunications engineering. Electrical engineers have contributed decisively in the construction of the Italian telephone network. The courses in electrical engineering and telecommunications have more or less 40 years of separation from the course in electrical engineering. The Decree of the President of the Republic in 2001 328 draws fall in industrial engineering or electrical engineering mechanics from which it was detached 100 years before.

The first course of Electrical Engineering is the 1886 Royal Industrial Museum of Turin, then members will converge in the newborn Politecnico di Torino in 1905.

Currently the term "electrical engineering" is used to indicate specifically that part of electrical engineering that encompasses all the classical theories of electromagnetism applied to studies circuit.

In the US studies of electrical engineering, electronic engineering, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering and automation engineering are included in two unique courses, referred to as electrical engineering and computer engineering, for historical reasons and for reasons actual interdisciplinary.
