Electronics engineer jobs

Electronics engineer creates and tests different electrical systems, that could include anything from satellites to iPads and everything else in between. Electrical engineers and electronic engineers often do similar work and in some countries, the titles are interchangeably used.

But in reality, there is a difference between the two engineering jobs. Electrical engineers are more concerned with creating and fixing electrical systems whereas electronic engineers handle electronic gadgets, their individual components, circuitry and other working parts of these devices.

In addition, electronics engineers are more concerned about processing information and changing the energy from one to another to make the gadgets work.

To become an electronics engineer, you need a Bachelor's degree in electronics engineering, though degrees in other related fields are also accepted. Many organizations also prefer to hire candidates with licenses from reputed organizations and even small projects that they have done, especially during college days, if you're a graduate engineer. For experienced electronic engineers, work experience can add to their advantage.

Some of the everyday tasks and responsibilities of an electronics engineer are:

  • Design electronic or computer-based gadgets
  • Consider the use of green technologies and how to make an existing product more environment-friendly.
  • Talk to technical people and get their help in preparing designs and operational plans.
  • Communicate technical information to concerned parties such as suppliers, vendors, and regulatory agencies.
  • Troubleshoot electronic equipment and identify the possible problems. Fix them if possible or reach out to the technical and design teams for help.
