Historical Background of Electrical Engineering
Scientific interest in electricity spread from the early 17th century. William Gilbert is the first electrical engineer, who designed a machine to detect objects with static electric charges. It distinguishes between magnetic and static electricity.
Benjamin Franklin invented the lightning conductor, in the mid-1750s, where he published the results of his experiments entitled “Experiments and Observations on Electricity.” In the early 1980s, Alexander Volta designed his first battery, the Volta Column, after admiring an experiment conducted by Luigi Galvani in 1792. Erasmus Kittler at the Technical University of TU-Darmstadt established the specialization of electrical engineering. It was the first time to study in Germany. The duration of the study was four years
