How would life be without Electrical Engineering?
Electrical engineering has had a major impact on both industry and everyday life. Life without it wouldn’t be the same.
That is why we have launched the International Day of Electrical Engineering on February 12th 2020.
Georg Simon Ohm proved that in a current-carrying metallic conductor, the resulting electric current I corresponds to the quotient of the applied electric voltage U and the respective electric resistance R.
Between 1832 and 1839 Robert Anderson developed the first electric car.
Nikola Tesla is born. He was one of the discoverers of alternating current.
Founding of the first degree course Electrical Engineering at TU Darmstadt
Founding of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The first microprocessor was developed by Marcian Edward Hoff.
Rudy Krolopp, Martin Cooper and Motorola launched the first mobile phone.
Industrial distribution of silicon carbide semiconductors.
Those are only some of the milestones in electrical engineering. The list of achievements is long and goes back to 2750 BC. But it wasn`t until 1600, that the first achievements in electrical engineering, as we know it today, were accomplished.
