Kuliah I
Engineering is the profession in which a
knowledge of the mathematical and
natural sciences, gained by study,
experience and practice, is applied with
judgment to develop ways to utilize,
economically, the materials and forces
of nature for the benefit of mankind.

-- ABET Handbook, 1996

Engineers and Scientists

 “The scientist explores what is. The engineer

creates what has not been.”
-- Theadore Von Karmen

 Engineers :
A Definition of Technology

 Technology comes from three Greek

words with the same root:
 Tekhnetos: man-made
 Tekhne (noun): skill
 Tekhnasthai: to devise artificially.

 Electrical Engineering is only 100 years old

 Electrical engineering is a discipline that
integrates many other disciplines, such as
physics, chemistry, mathematics, computers,
electronics, optics, electromagnetics
communications, analysis of signal and
images, remote sensing…….
Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering, the discipline that

employs the largest number of engineers,
covers everything related to electrical devices,
systems, and the use of electricity. Electrical
engineers work on power plants, computers, and
other electrical devices. Electrical engineers are
designing the dashboard computers that will
monitor engine functions on automobiles of the

What is electrical engineering?

The study of ELECTRICITY along with its

numerous applications
A brief history
In 1600, William Gilbert called
the property of attracting
particles after being rubbed

De Magnete was a treatise of

electricity and magnetism,
noting a long list of elements
that could be electrified.

Gilbert invented the versorium,

a device that detected
statically-charged bodies

William Gilbert, arguably the first electrical engineer
