“If you love electronics and like finding out how things work, this could be a perfect choice of career for you.”

Electronics Engineer

Electronics engineers design and develop the systems used by machines and equipment in lots of industries, from mobile communications and computing to aerospace.

To do this job well, you will need to be good at science, maths and IT. Part of the job is about finding better ways of doing things, so you'll need to be good at figuring out problems and coming up with new ideas. You'll also need good communication skills to get those ideas across.

Day-to-day duties include preparing technical plans, estimating manufacturing and labour cost, coordinating technicians and craftspeople, testing prototypes and analysing data.

To become an electronics engineer, you will usually need a foundation degree, HND or degree in a relevant electronics subject.
