The word Electronics is originated from the word electron which is a branch of science dealing with theory and use of devices in which the electrons travel through a vacuum, gas or a semiconductor medium. Electronics is that field of science which deals with the motion of electrons under the influence of applied electric and/or magnetic field.

Electronics can be classified into two branches: Physical Electronics and Electronics Engineering. Physical electronics deals with the motion of electronics in a vacuum, gas or semiconductor. Whereas, electronics engineering deals with the design, fabrication and application of electronic devices.

Alternatively we can define Electronics as the science of how to control the electric energy, energy in which the electrons have a fundamental role. Electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes, integrated circuits, and associated passive electrical components and interconnection technologies.

Commonly, electronic devices contain circuitry consisting primarily or exclusively of active semiconductors supplemented with passive elements; such a circuit is described as an electronic circuit.
