Job Description for Electrical Engineer

Electrical engineers are responsible for implementing and designing components for any device that uses electricity, as well as the devices themselves. Engineers have to focus on the generation of power to the device or product. These devices can include anything that runs on electricity. Electrical engineers also focus on researching, creating, and improving products and devices.

Due to the nature of the engineer's job, they often work in teams to solve the complex issues they are dealing with. Oftentimes, these teams consist of engineers with an expertise in different areas, so the group is better-equipped to arrive at a solution to an electrical need in a product. Therefore, it is important that engineers are team players. They must also be able to communicate ideas, take direction. They must be adept at math and science, be excellent problem solvers, able to think creatively, comfortable working on a computer, and comfortable speaking to a large group.

Becoming an electrical engineer does have some educational requirements, including having at least a bachelor’s degree. Most businesses won't consider someone for this position unless they have a degree, and most firms require a master’s or doctoral degree in electrical engineering.
