What is electronics engineering?

Beginning late in the 19th century with the telegraph, electronics engineering became an important part of technology development. The telephone and radio were soon to follow the telegraph in the 20th century, which then led to the television and of course the modern day electronics.

The term electronics engineering did not emerge until the 1950’s. Prior to that time, the industry was referred to as radio engineering. Today the industry encompasses designing and testing of electrical components to achieve a functional product that can be used by people and businesses worldwide.
