Electrical and Computer Engineers develop technologies including microelectronics, computers, wireless communications, control systems, and energy.
They apply these technologies to design and build a wide range of products: smartphones, microprocessors, medical devices, robots, green energy systems, and many others. Electrical and Computer Engineers provide the eyes, ears, and brains of smart electronic systems and the central nervous system of the Internet.
