What is the difference between mechanical and electrical engineering?

I’ll give you an overview of the important subjects that are offered in Electrical Engineering ( Indian context )

Year 1:

The course is not that extensive. Electrical Engineering specific is taught in this school year. The only topic to be taught in this year is Basics of Electrical Engineering, which is a continuation of the knowledge you learned in the class 10-12. This is an excellent opportunity to discover which area appeals to you. There is a possibility to slide branches in a variety of universities.

Year 2:

  1. Network Theory Consider Kirchoff’s Loops Thevenin’s Theorem and more. The most fascinating research papers.
  2. The measurement and the instrumentation process: Fundamentals for Instrumentation. Meggers Voltmeters and Bridges. Imagine it as an instruction course in which you learn about the equipment used in labs.
  3. Electromagnetics: Another expansion of what you’ve learned. Different Co-ordinate systems, Field, Field Intensity Different theorems and equations.
  4. Electric Drives : Speed, Torque, AC/DC Motors, Traction, etc.
  5. Signal and Systems: Basics to Control Systems
  6. Electrical Machines I and II* Motors and Generators level Plus plus.
  7. MATLAB is the programming language used by Electrical Engineers. Fantastic language, which is also used in Mechanical Engineering too.

Year 3:

  1. Electrical Power Systems I and II*: GTD in short: Generation Transmission, and Distribution.
  2. Electric Machine Design: Electric Machines that are contained in a separate bottle.
  3. Control Systems II and I: It’s quite new to me, and I’m not sure what to say to a student in 12th grade. It’s very interesting, I’m sure of it.
  4. Power Electronics: Thyristors, Diodes, Rectifiers, Level Plus Plus.
  5. Switchgear and Protection Relays, Circuit Breakers to protect the Power system, short.

Year 4:

  1. Project: Final Year Project
  2. Electrical High Voltage: Lightning Surges, Generation and Measurement of high voltages.
  3. HVDC: HVDC Transmission, advantages, generation, etc.
  4. Facts: AC Transmission.
  5. Other optional options.

A lot of courses could be offered in an entirely different year or semester. I have not included the subjects associated with electronics engineering in response to your question. There are numerous electives, and it will be an exhaustive list. You can get an idea of the subject here page on vnit.ac.in.
*The foundations that make up Electrical Engineering.

These are the most fundamental classes for Electrical Engineering. If they sound vaguely
You might find this interesting, so take a look. I don’t know much about mechanical engineering. I hope this has helped.
