Electrical Engineer What is it? Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment. They specialize in areas such as power systems engineering or electrical equipment manufacturing. Equipment Some of the equipment include electrical motors; machinery tools, wiring in buildings, and lighting. Systems include radar, navigation, and communication. Power generation, control, and transmission devices are also used by electric utilities. Education and Training A bachelor's degree is required for almost
all entry level engineering jobs. Most engineering
degrees are granted in electrical, mechanical, and civil
engineering. A license requires a degree from an ABET accredited
engineering program, 4 years of relevant work experience, and a
completion of a State examination. In a 4 year college, the first 2 years are spent studying
mathematics, basic sciences, introduction to engineering, humanities, and social sciences. The last 2 years most courses are in engineering. Employment/Job Outlook In 2008, electrical engineers held about 157,800 jobs. They are expected to have an employment growth of 2 percent. By 2018, electrical engineers will have about 160,500 jobs.
