Electrical engineers work with systems that generate, transmit, distribute, store, control or use electromagnetic energy or electrically coded information. They may be involved in the development, manufacture or application of a wide variety of electrical and electronic devices, circuits, systems, products and equipment. They must apply and comply with known standards and may be involved in the development of standards.
Electrical engineers may specialize in (But not limited to) :
- Communications engineering (for example, the compression, transmission, routing and reception of numerical, audio, video or digital data information)
- Computer engineering (for more information, see the Computer Engineer and Software Engineer occupational profiles)
- Control systems engineering (for example, the control of chemical processes such as those in petroleum extraction, refining and delivery)
- Electronic materials and nanotechnology (for example, the integration of semiconductor devices and Nano-Scale sensors)
- Electronics engineering (for example, radio, television, navigational or automotive instrumentation)
- Power systems engineering (the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy).
In each of these fields, electrical engineers may further specialize in one or more of the following:
- Maintaining and troubleshooting existing systems
- Conducting research
- Specifying, designing, implementing and testing products and systems
- Designing and simulating electronic product prototypes (models)
- Designing manufacturing processes
- Developing test and quality control procedures to ensure that products meet quality specifications and safety standards.
- Will be required to prepare contract documents such as drawings and specifications for project construction.
- Supervise and co-ordinate the work of others.
Electrical engineers generally work in an office environment but also may be required to travel to operating sites, construction, infrastructure sites, and manufacturing facilities. They may work long hours and experience a great deal of pressure to meet deadlines and design standards. In rare circumstances, electrical engineers may be exposed to chemical gasses or work in severe climate conditions.
The Ideal Candidates:
- Natural inquisitiveness and good observation skills
- An analytic thinker with problem solving skills
- A strong aptitude for mathematics and science
- The ability to pay close attention to details
- Good organization and time management skills
- Excellent oral and written communication skills
- The ability to work effectively in teams of people from varied backgrounds.
The minimum education requirement for electrical engineers is a four year bachelor's degree in electrical engineering.
