It is no surprise that electrical and computer engineers enjoy some of the highest starting salaries out of all disciplines of engineering. Circuits are all around us. Oftentimes the word "technology" itself has become synonymous with the electric circuit. Introductory physics classes give a flavor of how to work with electrical circuits, starting with their most fundamental components. After you learn the types and uses of resistors, capacitors, inductors, batteries, and others, you can begin to understand these little things we call circuits that have become so deeply engrained in our modern world.
