"I just meant that, as I looked down through the graphics, I also recongnized the integration of EE with for other disciplines - mechanical, materials, chemical, robotics, and the list goes on"

Eldredge, I understood that you have a degree in EEE and you can be proud of it.

HM, physics, chemistry etc are not engineering subjects. They are pure science subjects.

@Haiely: I am an EE. But it is vrey important to first acknowledge others too, explicitly. If not, I may not like to include myself.

@Hailey - The whole point of the infographic is to celebrate the contributions of the EE discipline, and rightfully so. I think the whole village can celebrate that!

@Eldredge, it's a good point...and i'm sure we could also point to a lot of technologies that should be represented on this graphic as well. It takes a village and all that.

_HM, i don't think it's a matter of taking all the credit...i think it's a good reminder of how important EE's are to many of the really great technoogies that have come along.

@Jacob - No doubt, the EE discipline and it's offspring play a major role. I have a degree in EE, so I don't intend to downplay it's importance, and highlighting the contribution of the EE discipline in all of the identified technologies is the point of the infographic. I just meant that, as I looked down through the graphics, I also recongnized the integration of EE with for other disciplines - mechanical, materials, chemical, robotics, and the list goes on.

@Jacob: It not only EE and CS. It can have following more:

 

- Physics

- Chemistry

- Chemical

- Optics

- Material Science

- Mechanical

 

and many more.

"I was thinking the same thing. Certainly, all of the innovations and technologies identified in the infographic involved contributions from the EE discipline, but most also involve the integration of multiple disciplines."

Eldredge, computer engineering and electronic engineering are evolved from electrical engineering. Now also in most of the universities, these two branches are under EE departments. So EE can take the credit as mother of these two branches.
