    I meant history on how the job was developed and how it started.

    What do you mean, 'Job'? A specific project? You didn't specify anything in particular except the history of electrical engineering.

    Like most fields, it's sort of hard to define a start. The earliest "electrical engineers" were just scientists discovering electricity and how to manipulate it. Ohm, Faraday, Edison, Tesla are names that come to mind.

    If you're asking when it sort of exploded as a career, I suppose sometime after that as telegraphy and electrical distribution spread.
