Can someone elaborate on E.E research topics and current-active research programs? I have read about photonics, optical computing, quantum computing and semi-conductors. I plan on doing a project and small research on an undergraduate level. I tried to do a research on tokamaks and confining plasma but it is not a main topic in E.E, even though it is related somehow; I also wanted to assemble and build a small plasma reactor but the ideas that I wanted to test were a bit too advanced and complex. Suggesting a book, lecture or documentary would be good. Note: I haven't completed calculus and calculus based physics yet.
