Career Expectations

The main duties of an electrical or electronics engineer include working with multimedia, telecommunications, electric power, signal processing, and control systems. All of these skills help produce remote control cars, robots, electrical systems for planes and automobiles, new forms of wireless communication, and other not-yet imagined products and software. There's no limit to how electrical engineers can improve and invent ways to help make life easier and safer!

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).
