Electronic engineers

Electronic engineers design and develop the electrical and electronic equipment we use every day, from mobile phones to microwaves.

Electronic engineers try to improve our everyday lives by making innovative equipment for use in communications, healthcare, computing and entertainment. Using a combination of hardware and software skills, these engineers research, design and test new electronic products.

Electronic engineers also develop high-tech information systems for use in areas like navigation control, weather forecasting and industrial robotics. They can also work on microelectronics – the design of very small electronic parts for use in circuits or chips.

Electronic engineers use their problem-solving skills to…

1. Design cutting-edge consumer gadgets such as virtual reality headsets or augmented reality glasses.
2. Improve navigation control systems for aircraft, ships and trains.
3. Enhance the design of medical devices such as hearing aids or pacemakers.
4. Develop high-speed microchips to make mobile devices run faster and more efficiently.
5. Design artificial intelligence systems for computers and devices.
