Electrical engineering

As we move into the future, the technology that surrounds us will continue to expand and electrical engineers are leading the way. Electrical engineers design, develop and maintain electrical control systems and/or components to required specifications, focusing on economy, safety, reliability, quality and sustainability.

Involved in projects from design concept through to implementation, testing and handover, they design and manufacture electrical equipment for use across many sectors, such as the construction industry, and services including lighting, heating, ventilation, transportation and transport networks, manufacturing and production and distribution of power. For example, they may work on the design of telecommunications systems, the operation of electric power stations or the lighting and wiring of buildings.

While the nature of the role varies according to industry or sector, most electrical engineers will find themselves working in a team including engineers from other specialist areas as well as architects, marketing and sales staff, manufacturers and technicians. Along with technical knowledge, electrical engineers need to be able to project manage and multitask. They also need to have commercial awareness and as careers progress, team leadership and management skills.
