    Electrical Engineering The field of electrical and computer

    engineering is primarily involved with the

    tasks ofgeneration, transmission,processing, and storage of informationor electric power (signals). Theunderlying factor is the use of electricity orelectromagnetic waves (such as light) andsound.
