Electronics, or electronic engineering, is a small but significant part of the world of engineering. It’s a discipline where non-linear and active electrical components such as electron tubes and semiconductor devices are utilised to design electronic circuits, devices and systems.

This broad engineering field covers important subfields such as analog electronics, digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics. In this field, engineers design and test circuits that use the electromagnetic properties of electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes and transistors to achieve a particular functionality, for example, the turner circuit which allows the user of a radio to filter out all but a single station.

Work is usually carried out in project teams, with colleagues in electronics and other branches of engineering. Electronics engineers work on a project through all its stages, from the initial brief for a concept though the design and development stage, to the testing of one or more prototypes, and through to final manufacture and implementation of a new product or system. Duties typically include discussing proposals with clients, testing theoretical designs, writing specifications, project planning, preparing budgets and writing technical reports.
