My Specialty is Electric and Power engineering
I study at the Correspondence Department of the Vladimir State University. This University provides training in different specialties. For example together with other specialists it trains engineers for different kinds of industry. I am going to be an electrical and power engineer.

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment. Some of this equipment includes electric motors; machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings; radar and navigation systems; communications systems; and power generation, control, and transmission devices used by electric utilities. Electrical engineers also design the electrical systems of automobiles and aircraft. Although the terms electrical and electronics engineering often are used interchangeably in academia and industry, electrical engineers traditionally have focused on the generation and supply of power, whereas electronics engineers have worked on applications of electricity to control systems or signal processing. Electrical engineers specialize in areas such as power systems engineering or electrical equipment manufacturing.

Power Engineering deals with the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity as well as the design of a range of related devices. These include transformers, electric generators, electric motors and power electronics.

The power grid is an electrical network that connects a variety of electric generators to the users of electric power. Users purchase electricity from the grid so that they do not need to generate their own. Power engineers may work on the design and maintenance of the power grid as well as the power systems that connect to it. Such systems are called on-grid power systems and may supply the grid with additional power, draw power from the grid or do both. The grid is designed and managed using software that performs simulations of power flows.

Power engineers may also work on systems that do not connect to the grid. These systems are called off-grid power systems and may be used in preference to on-grid systems for a variety of reasons. For example, in remote locations it may be cheaper for a mine to generate its own power rather than pay for connection to the grid and in most mobile applications connection to the grid is simply not practical.

I think that the profession of electrical and power engineer is very important nowadays because it is concerned with electric power supply. Our life is practically impossible without electricity. Electric power has become universal; its applications now cover all fields of human activity from washing machines to the latest laser devices. Truly electricity provides mankind with the energy of the future. Alongside with other systems of life support electric power supply forms the basis of modern economy. All the industrial, transport and communication enterprises; office, public and residentional buildings are full of electric power supply systems. And electrical engineers are required to design, install, operate and maintain all these systems.

The Vladimir State University has been training electrical engineers since 1997. According to the curriculum students going to become electrical engineers study general educational and specialized subjects. In the process of study the future electrical engineers obtain enough knowledge and are taught to design, construct and operate up-to-date electric power supply systems. Much attention is paid to computer application to electric power supply. Engineers specializing in electric power supply also get (receive) training in designing and maintaining state-of-the-art electromagnetic, electromechanical and electronic instruments, devices, machines and electric power supply systems.

Electrical engineers can easily find an employment in various companies in Vladimir and the Region, because not a single enterprise (from a small farm up to huge industrial giants, space-launch complexes and flight control centres) can work properly without electrical engineers. They are in great demand everywhere; there is the shortage of them in the Vladimir Region. So I am sure to find an interesting, worthy and well-paid job.
