Electrical Engineering vs. Electronics Engineering

Electrical Engineering Electronics Engineering
Developing electronic products Electronic component development along with software.
Manufacturing and installation are the prime activities Here, it is testing and maintenance.
If there is any complaint from the client, it is managed and solutions are offered. Improvement of technical performance is focused on. 


Then why electrical and electronics engineering come together?

Every circuit developed is a combination of both these branches. So, in order to know the programming of the circuit one has to also learn its programming. This will let the student understand the machine function.
