As a licensed electrician, I have noticed a few weaknesses of electrical engineers (EEs). EE's are not required to attend update classes, or any other training to keep up with code changes and equipment updates.
EE's design home, commercial and secondary distribution systems, but they do not pull permits, which a licensed electrician does.
By Michigan Law, a licensed electrician is the only one who pulls permits, installs electrical devices and can accept the work. EE's that are not up to date pull shortcuts, and do not follow the electrical codes, which make the electrician's life difficult and make jobs cost more.

EE's are very BOOK focused, and if it's new or not in his books it's wrong!
They tend to be very bigoted and unable to walk on new or virgin ground! Are so book smart that they forget the sun was once TAUGHT it went around the earth, and 98% are this way, too!

However this is not the only group with this "God Like" attitude for it is common all Phd's and others, too.

This is the very reason "The Durants" came up with that question about the tree I posted. For the farther down the tree you see the better you would would be in research, where the books help but do not rule.

The best I've seen on that question (other than my partner and I) saw the trunk of the tree!

For a true analytical mind or one with a very high degree of logic and reasoning is very uncommon and most say it's very rare.

Answer that question honestly and be honest, or your cheating yourself only.
However that was given to me by Charles Durant, and even though I'm not positive, I believe that question originally came from his grandfather "The World Renowned" and "Award Winning" "Will Durant" He died in 1882!

Also check out the difference between Apple and IBM, for that was logic and reasoning in it's purest form!

They should have a list mentally prepared of your greatest strengths like

  • Quality Control Analysis
  • Judgment and Decision Making
  • Systems Analysis

They should have weakness in the following task:

  • Critical Thinking
  • Complex Problem Solving
  • Equipment Maintenance
Its depend on how you complete your education and from where. Nagpur Engineering colleges give the best education, so there is no chance of weakness.

They could have weakness in:

  • Equipment Maintenance
But its depend on from where you complete your education, If you complete your education from Nagpur engineering colleges then I hope you don't have any weakness.

Hi, guys! I don't know at all about the features of the electrical engineer profession. I was studying marketing specialty. And now I'm not so good at all this electrical equipment etc. It is not convenient in everyday life, because sometimes I have such issues. But I found the solution. I'm using the help of real professionals from New York in this sphere. Do you want me to share? Not a problem. Try it on your own. Wish you good luck!

In today's world Electrical engineering is a wide open field involving work in both electrical, electronic and electromagnetism engineering. Prior to the existence of computers most electrical engineers worked in the design and building of electrical systems. Systems providing power transmission and motor control.

Today electrical engineers are involved in fields such as digital electronics, artificial intelligence, computer science, analog electronics and signal processing to name a few.

Electrical engineering includes electronic engineering, which deals with the study and design of small electronic systems such integrated circuits and of course computers. Electrical engineers are concerned with electricity itself, while electronic engineers are concerned with the use of electricity in the field of electronic communications. William Gilbert is considered to be the father of electrical engineering, while Ben Franklin is credited with the discovery of electricity.

An electrical engineer must possess a college degree with a major in electrical engineering. During the four to five years of college he/she would study math, physics, computer science, project management and many topics dealing with electrical engineering. Electrical Engineers also must receive a Masters Degree through research or coursework. Work experience is also a requirement for receiving certification a through degree program.

The work of electrical engineers is governed by laws and regulations in many countries. Electrical engineers are responsible for electric power generation needed in the wide range of technologies in our world today. They design, test, develop, as well as supervise all types of telecommunications systems, electric power stations, and wiring and lightening commercial buildings. They design many household appliances such as televisions, radios, and other appliances found in our homes.

The basic strengths of electrical engineers lie in their knowledge and ability to use electricity, as a means of improving the lives of people. The only weaknesses in electrical engineering would be in failing to live up to the principles and ethics of this field, and use ones knowledge to improve the lives of people.
