Engineering professionals specializing as Electrical and Electronics Engineers carry out tasks related to developing, preparing plans, carrying out R&D, assessing and examining electrical and electronic apparatus and devices. These professionals can have specializations in various domains including electrical installations for residential, commercial or industrial installations, electrical power generation and transmission, and instrumentation and control networks.

These people find employment in agencies providing electrical services, communications agencies, producers of electrical and electronic machinery, consultant agencies, and various private and government sector companies involved in production, development and transportation.

Main duties

A typical list of obligations of Electrical and Electronics Engineers involve carrying out listed tasks

  • Carrying our studies into the viability, design, functional aspect and performance of electrical production and distribution systems, electrical apparatus and parts and electronic communications, device installations and control machinery, apparatus, and parts
  • Developing material costing and timing forecasts, reports and design parameters for electrical and electronic systems and apparatus
  • Defining and preparing electrical and electronic systems, parts, systems and devices
  • Carrying out micro or nano-devices dry runs, preparing descriptions, process modeling and adaptation whole designing new electronic apparatus and devices
  • Monitoring, controlling and assessing commissioning process, alteration, analysis and functioning of electrical and electronic machinery and processes
  • Preparing and defining maintenance and operational  parameters for electrical and electronic networks and apparatus
  • Assessing and examining electrical or electronic snags
  • Making agreement papers and assessing tenders for construction or maintenance
  • Monitoring and controlling tasks of technicians, technologists, programmers, analysts and other engineers.
