An electrical engineer is someone who designs and develops new electrical equipment, solves problems and tests equipment. He deals with electricity, electro-magnetism and electronics. It also covers power, control systems, telecommunications and signal processing. These engineers are usually concerned with large-scale electrical systems such as motor control and power transmission, as well as utilizing electricity to transmit energy. Electrical engineers may work on a diverse range of technologies, from the design of household appliances, lighting and wiring of buildings, telecommunication systems, electrical power stations and satellite communications. They may plan their designs using computer-aided software or they may also sketch ideas by hand.
There are many sub-disciplines of electrical engineering. Some of them specialize exclusively in one sub-discipline, while others specialize in a combination of sub-disciplines. Students obtaining this occupation need to have units in physics, math, computers and project management. Electrical engineering courses are a mix of design and lab work. Students are taught to design and develop different solutions to a variety of real life situations.
Electrical engineers need to be logical, detail-oriented and need to work well in a team setting. They must also be creative and be able to think outside of the box. They must be able to communicate their ideas to their team and also need to understand engineering in general before specializing in electrical engineering in particular.
Electrical engineers usually work in a lab, an office, a mine or in industrial plants. An electrical engineer usually can pursue a technical career in any industry. An electrical engineer also spends a lot of time doing project management, such as meeting with clients, determining budgets and preparing project schedules. Engineering projects usually require written documentation, so strong writing and communication skills are important.

Food Processing and Production
Nowadays there is a growing need for engineers who are familiar with the fundamental problems m food processing and production. In the near future many of the food production engineers will be recent university graduates. The students of the Ternopil National I. Pul'uj Technical University will apply their theoretical and practical knowledge at different food industry enterprises after completing their course of study at the University. The level of specialists training will allow them to develop competitive and qualitative technological equipment for food production and processing factories and plants, to conduct reconstruction and technological installation of food production enterprises, to provide technical maintenance of the equipment, its assembling, diagnostics and repair.
The Department of Processing Technologies in Food Industry was founded in 1995 and today it includes two chairs: food technologies equipment and food biotechnologies and chemistry. Educational process and scientific research are provided with all necessary installation in special laboratories (laboratory of food industry processes and apparatuses, canning technologies laboratory, technical microbiology lab., refrigerating technologies lab. and many others). The students are taught and assisted by highly-qualified lecturers, including Doctors of Sc., Candidates of Sc. and Assistant-Professors.
As engineers make the vast contribution in design, assembling and maintenance of new types of equipment we need their analytical frame of mind and their imagination. They may design an instrument or device themselves; invent new model, test it, its components, analyze its performance and make a mathematical analysis. So they must be aware of making drawings and specifications. They may be concerning themselves with the development of a new production process, or the adaptation of current process to a new product. Besides, food industry engineers must have a deep knowledge of foods, their components and processing technologies. They may utilize their engineering know-how in determining the best processes and equipment for the mass production of high-quality products. They may be project engineers in charge of the design and installation of a highly automatic conveyer system for handling different kinds of parts between various assembly stations.
Being a student of our university you have a chance to get a wide range of necessary knowledge in exact humanitarian sciences, marketing and management, to learn one or two foreign languages.

When studying economics for the first time, it is necessary to know what economics is all about. Unfortunately, it is not possible to define the subject by a single word. Economics was defined as the study of humankind in the everyday business life. This means that economics deals with production, distribution, exchange and consumption. It answers such questions as: How do we produce all the things we need? How are prices determined? Economics is also concerned with unemployment, inflation, international trade, the interaction of business and labour, and the effects of government spending and taxes.
Economics does not stop with the description of economic activity because description alone leaves unanswered many important why and how questions. Economics is a social science like history, geography, politics, psychology and sociology. It is the study of human efforts to satisfy what seems like unlimited and competing wants through the careful use of relatively scarce resources. Economists study what is or tends to be and how it came to be. They do not in any way pretend to tell what ought to be. People must make up their own minds about that. Economics is therefore concerned with activities relating to wealth, i.e. production, consumption, exchange and distribution.
For our own purpose, we shall define economics as the study of man in his attempts to gain a living by utilizing his limited resources.
