What is Main Difference b/w Electrical and Electronics Engineering?


According To Wikipedia;

Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.

Electronics engineering, is an engineering discipline where non-linear and active electrical components such as electron tubes, and semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, are utilized to design electronic circuits, devices and systems.

but this is the main difference between electrical and electronics engineering is:-

Electrical Engineering = Study and Utilization/Application of Flow of Electrons.

Electronics Engineering = Study and utilization/Application of Flow of Charge ( Electron & Holes).

As we know that we study only the flow of Electrons in a Conductor and insulator,
but in case of Semiconductor, we study both of flow of electrons ( Negatively Charge) and hols ( Positively Charge).

Also Note that ” Electronics Engineering is one of the Field/branch of Electrical Engineering.
