Transcript of Electrical Engineers
Engineering An overview of the Elecrical Engineering discipline. Description Interview Elecrical Engineers belong to a discipline of engineering involving
the designing and testing of new electronic equipment and circuit
boards. In 2009, 318,700 Electrical Engineers were employed in the
U.S. alone. This was second only to Computor Software Engineering. Electrical Engineering
Sub-Disciplines There is a very broad range
of sub-disciplines that are
covered by Electrical
Engineering. Some of these
disciplines include... Power Engineering Control Engineering Electronics Engineering Signal Processing Telecommunications Engineering Instrumentation Engineering Computer Engineering Most Engineers will focus on more
than one of these disciplies, giving them a more diverse field of knowledge. However some engineers concentrate solely on one particular field. Job Availability
Outlook The job availability should
stay steady or slowly rise
up until at least 2018.
There is future prosperity
in this field. Where are the
Jobs? An Electrical Engineer has many options,
given their flexibility. These potiention
job positions range from car design to
circuit board assembly to global positioning
systems to working with Aerospace Engineers
to design commercial and military aircraft. Estimated Salary As of 2009, the average Elecrical Engineer,
directly out of college with a Bachelor's
degree, will have a starting salary of around
$60,340 dollars a year. After college, the average
salary jumps to anywhere
between $61,880 to $103,480 Responsibilities Electrical engineers does not have direct job responsibilities, but are expected to do a little of everything. Engineers will discuss project time frames and budgets with clients while senior engineers will often manage teams of scientists, technicians, and other engineers. College Courses Many colleges offer specific courses in electric engineering. Purdue, being one of the larger engineering schools has a lot of options. Some of these options are... Circuit Analysis Digital Fundamentals Intro to C Programming Analog Signal Processing Project Design ...and many more are also available. High School
Preparation Many major colleges require Algebra I, II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Chemistry, Physics, and all 4 years of English in order for a student to take any engineering course. Also, colleges recommend that incoming freshmen take a math course their senior year of high school. To better understand this career, I decided to interview Bill Whiteman, my father. He has an Associate in Applied Science for Electrical Engineering Technology degree from Purdue University. Bill Whiteman is Vice-President and Director of Engineering at JPD Controls. His company engineers, designs, and manufactures circuit boards for various customers. In particular, Bill manages 50% of the customer accounts in the areas of marketing his company, helping customers with design issues, quoting design and assembly services, overseeing the manufacturing process, and quality assurance. The reason he choose his particular career path is because, when he was younger, he took everything apart in order to figure out how and why it works. The one item he couldn't understand by disassembling was electronics. His curiosity led him to pursue his degree. If there was any advice he could give to anyone else interestd in any field of engineering, it would be to find an internship or a part-time job that will reinforce the concepts you're learning in the classroom and continue working towards your degree. Don't stop until you have the degree you want. Biblyography
