Basic Electrical Engineering Interview Questions

1.What is your opinion on traditional lecture-based learning vs. problem-based learning? Which practice is most beneficial in your eyes for a student interested in an electrical engineering discipline?

2.How has the electrical engineering discipline changed over the years?

3.When first practicing as an engineer was there a cultural language you had to work to understand? In other words is there a difference in the way you speak to a fellow engineer and some other person?

4.If you had the ability to change something to improve the field of electrical engineering, what would it be? How would you do it?

5.What do you think is the most common misconception about the field of electrical engineering?

6.What has been the most difficult aspect of your work?

There is not such thing as electrical engineering, any more.

It’s electrical engineering with electronics.

Even electricians come in contact with electronics – circuit breakers, dimmers, fluoro starters, fan speed controls and many more.

Well, somebody apparently messed up on my diploma, then….

Nope thats what the industry demands now Tim They want it all ways which to be fare doesent ideally always point to proffesional as you cant possibly be that specialist in any one field

Regardless of how much I know I still have to refer to Text books and I still have to look things up no matter how hard i try to remember all of this I have to revise constantly practice constantly, learn constantly read constantly

I dont care how clever you are You will always make a mistake here and there or get confused, cross refernced on something These its a need to know basis So you learn as when you need to know during which time you partially forget what you have learnt and have to go back and brush up again Hence computors will never be perfect no point in even trying to think they will be After all they are designed by people who are not error free in the first instance

Correct right or wrong some one somewhere will make an error

Just as well perhaps dont you think so?

While I would agree with most of what you said, I don’t think that electronics and electrical engineering should be seen so far removed from each other. Since the advent of the transistor, it is simply another tool to be used by the engineer. It is, however a large field requiring a lot of knowledge, and knowing where and how to look for answers is the key, since, as you said, no one could specialize in the field of electronics. You can’t specialize in a tool, just in a technique to use the tool.

Yes this is true now Electical emginneering is no longer just electrics Its electronics plus electrics but in the field its still module, replacement bourd, replacement

In the design area the electronics module is an empty box with input

The electronics engineer designs that box of electronics and has to know about ac thoery together with power devices, mico opamps and programming

Back on the bench if they even bother these days which nine out of ten they dont “All part of this magnificent throw away age, the waste age i call it “ The electronics engineer is the person that initiates the service or repair of that bourd to component level if it can be done

However these days they dont anymore which highlights how wastefull society has become how extravagant companies have become and also indicates why enginneers these days lack the practical skills which so many electrical electronics engineers used to have

Also why the level of unemployment is so high Not down to engineers as such but down to companies who wont provide that backup anymore

In fact as some one quoted but to the wrong person a few days ago the” technical salesperson “not realising I think that some people here have had more hands on experiance in most enginnering related fields than he is ever likley to have in his entire lifespan or is ever likley to see again inclusive mechanical encapsulated within this as well

Quite a sad day I think looking at trade and Industry as a whole and the way companies co operate very sad day

1.

When parallel resistors are of three different values, which has the greatest power loss?
A. The smallest resistance
B. The largest resistance
C. They have the same power loss.
D. Voltage and resistance values are needed.

Answer: Option A

The answer lies in which resistor will dissipate the most heat so the answer is A since the resistor that will pass the most current will be the smallest

If you wanted to be exact the voltage drop acoss all is the same only the current varies

Parallel resistors will have the same voltage across them — P=E**2/R — therefore, because ‘E’ is the same for all resistors in parallel, the greatest power will be dissipated in the resistor with the lowest resistance.
