Nowadays engineering is a popular and trending industry and as an electronic engineer, we will be able to work with the high level technology in the range of the sectors. An electronic engineer generally has to deal with designing, developing and testing the components, devices, systems and equipments which would use electricity as the part of the source of the power. It also includes capacitors, diodes, resistors and transistors.
We may go through any stage of a project which will include the initial brief for the concept such as design and development stage, testing of the prototypes as well as final manufacture and application of the new product of the system.
We can find the work in a variety of areas as electronics are being used in many things which include:
- Instruments in medical
- Mobile phones
- Communication via radio and satellite
Types of ECE Engineering: we can get specialize in a particular subfield of electronic engineering such as:
- Control engineering
- Signal Processing and Telecommunication engineering.
Responsibilities of Electronic Engineer:
Being an electronic engineer, we should discuss various proposals with the clients and work with the colleagues in order to design new systems, circuits and devices or develop the technologies in this field. Before finalizing the product, we should test its theoretical design as well as writing the specifications and technical reports about those products.
If we are innovating something, then we should follow the development processes and systematically improve the detailed design of the electronic equipment. It should be ensured by us that a product will work with the devices which are developed by others and they will perform efficiently in particular operating environments.
It is the duty of the electronic engineer to create the user friendly interfaces and ensure that safety regulations have been followed or not. The sufficient planning has to be done by us by preparing budgets. The one should supervise the technicians, craftspeople and other colleagues.
The task for which an electronic engineer is responsible will depend on the level at which they are working such as many incorporated engineers possess the responsibility for definite projects as well as day to day operations while on the other hand, they also have the essential role towards various projects.
