About Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineers are involved with everything to do with electricity – from installing and maintaining equipment in houses, businesses and within communities, to making sure we’re up to date with the latest ways of generating and distributing electricity, and have the latest technologies, such as mobile phone signal and gadgets!

You might be the kind of person who wants to help people directly, by installing or fixing equipment directly in houses, or travelling around keeping the electricity grid running or you may prefer working in a lab on the latest technology. Whatever you’re into, this sector has it!

Why not start your career pathway now by starting your research here?!

The Wireless Power Lab at Imperial College London is engaged in research that will enable devices to be charged or powered at a distance without the need of a power cord or a battery. Use the Force, Luke!
