    Default How To Become An Electrical Engineer

    This is a very broad question and depends on your chosen direction as an electrical engineer. Mathematical, IT and Analytical skills are just the start and the usual path is either

    a)into an apprenticeship
    b)into a college degree

    Either way works. An apprenticeship is a great route if you wish a faster entrance into a job role at a young age. College degrees can last 3 to 4 years if its a sandwich course where you spend 1 year with an employer. either way , you should check out the credentials of the trainers and lecturers. If they have a strong industry background, thats a good indicator of a quality career path.

    If its a degree, what are the college facilities like?? Are you building state of the art projects, or are you going to be struggling on a badly funded course?

    Know those aspects. Speak to someone at the course chosen and ask a lot of questions when you first meet the course tutor on your chosen direction.

    Examples are electonic engineering jobs needing ICA experience, or some other significant professional experience for the better paying roles. But, trainee positions crop up on sites like justengineers.net, reed, monster and other job sites. If you google Graduate Engineer , many will crop up.

    Have a good idea of your skills: testing and development, combining technology with creativity, are you an inventor for example. Do you enjoy watching shows like scrapheap challenge and think 'i can do that....'. Do you build electrical projects as a hobby?

    Other than design and development, you could be manufacturing electronic devices, testing and fixing power generators, repairing and building computer systems, working on TV studio floors on camera equipment, or rigging and building satellites.

    Electrical engineers are involved in all kinds of routes. The best way to become one is first to know what interests you the most so you can match your interests to the industry.

    Electrical engineers create and evaluate designs of electrical equipment, circuit boards, motors, wiring and other types of electrical systems.
    One of the most popular branches of engineering, education requirements for these engineers varies as per the level of job and the employer.
    However, in any case an electrical engineer should hold a four-year bachelor's degree in the respective field from a reputed college.

    Having a degree in physics and/or electrical engineering will definitely help in landing a job. Without it, you'll be nothing against people who have degrees in one of them or both. There are different types of jobs in this field including manufacturing products and troubleshooting. Most jobs generally pay well as far as I know, and there is definitely a high demand at the moment.

    Have you ever dreamed of designing brand new electronics? Would you like to help create the world's fastest computer? Or do you want to build a car that runs on electricity? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a career in electrical engineering might be just right for you.
