BASIC CONFUSION(in Electrical and Electronics engg..)

       Most of the electrical and electronics engineering students who joined their course at first will have a big conflicts on the difference between electrical and electronics.
     Here it comes, "Electronics is the field in which there will be the study of controlled flow of electrons in different media and in vacuum whereas the electrical is the field that deals with the generation, transmission and distribution of electric power".

     The electrical and electronics engineering is an engineering field that deals with the study of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism in USA and in other countries like India. But this was not accepted in UK and other European countries.In most of the european countries they are providing electrical engineering and electronics engineering as a separate disciplines.

     I spent most of my college life without knowing this simple concept.At the starting stage of my course, I thought Electrical is concerned with AC and Electronics is concerned with DC. After some time knowing the real difference, I found myself the most dumbest person in the world. But still now most of the students were thinking that Electrical is the field that deals with electric power of high range or ratings and electronics as the field concerned with small ranges of electrical power.
