Career Expectations

The main duties of an electrical or electronics engineer include:

  • Planning electrical systems and products for any applications, including industrial (such as automotive or aviation), medical, military, and commercial.
  • Designing new ways to use electrical power to create or enhance products.
  • Executing detailed calculations to improve manufacturing standards.
  • Maintaining and modifying electronic systems for safety, performance, efficiency, and standards.

Job Outlook

According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, the overall median annual wage of electrical engineers in May 2014 was $95,780. The lowest 10 percent of electrical engineers earned $59,140, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $143,200. Employment of electrical and electronics engineers is projected to grow 4.5 percent.  Job growth is expected because of electrical and electronics engineers’ versatility in developing and applying emerging technologies (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
