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.

  • 1826

    Ohm’s law

    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.

  • 1832

    First E-Car

    Between 1832 and 1839 Robert Anderson developed the first electric car.

    1832

  • 1856
