Electrical engineering is a broad field with many broad applications. This means that it's a great field to get into if you want to have a lot of career opportunities to choose from, and if you want to be able to work in different industries without having to start your career from scratch every time you change jobs. Many industries require the services of an electrical engineer in order to stay relevant and technologically up-to-date. If you become an electrical engineer, you will likely have to do difficult work, but at least you will have lots of opportunities to choose from.
One of the most obvious industries that employ electrical engineers is electronics manufacturing. Without electrical engineers to design products that require electricity to function, the products wouldn't work. This is especially important in areas where technology and electricity meet. Most people don't care what a product can do if the battery life of the product isn't good enough. An electrical engineer can help a Research and Development department to find the perfect balance between cool functions and a long enough battery life. The battery doesn't need to last forever; just long enough so that recharging it as often as necessary doesn't become a nuisance.
The energy industry also employs its fair share of electrical engineers. And electrical engineer can do everything from designing electrical systems to maintaining power grids to repairing malfunctioning equipment. They can work on something as large as a turbine or something as small as a computer circuit. It's the electrical engineer's versatility that makes him or her such an asset to the workplace. If you are thinking about becoming an electrical engineer, just make sure to pay attention to all of the details. Having such a broad variety of careers to choose from comes with a price; you'll have to make sure that you have a firm grasp of the fundamentals so that you can apply them in all different circumstances.
