*(I'm new so please feel free to correct me if I do anything wrong )*

1) I'm just about to leave high school and start my first year at UW-Platteville, a engineering focused college, and I'm very adamant about going into Electrical engineering. The problem I'm coming up with is I cant pinpoint exactly what I will be doing on a job cite after college. My high school makes you research your possible majors and the websites I found say things like "you could work at a power plant" but I'm not actually clear on what that means. If anyone has any first hand experience you would like to share or any clarification on what you might specifically be doing I would

__greatly appreciate it a lot!__

I do a lot of regular electrical work with my dad and I find a great deal of pleasure in learning about how outlets, light ballasts, and wiring houses works. My dad also works at the local power plant and tells me about the interesting electrical things he fixes throughout his days at work. I've kind of recently been fascinated in electrical grids and figuring out how power is locally distributed around a city or municipality, or even understanding how a coal powered turbine at a power plant generates electricity and brainstorming ways to improve the process to make it more efficiently produce energy.

TL;DR: can anyone offer insight on what specifically you do as an electrical engineer either at a power plant or circuit wise.

**Thank all of you for taking the time to even read this and to help me out!**
