Job Description for Electro Optical Engineer
Electro optical engineers are responsible for completing engineering tasks related to electronic and optical devices, as well as creating optical designs and facilitating the user of laser optics. They develop and engineer sensors based on project specifications and typically use a personal computer to create design measurements, change design plans, and create concepts, and they're also tasked with integrating system sensor development.Read More...
These engineers help verify that all engineering processes are followed correctly, and should be organized and pay close attention to detail when working in a laboratory setting to measure quality output for optical devices. They may help align and calibrate optical and electrical equipment before and after use, and also help set up test beds and provide maintenance to all optical devices. They assist in management and analysis efforts to reduce data and help write documentation based on their observations, and also help test custom machinery, and should work well with other engineers to achieve goals in a timely manner.
Electro optical engineers use specialized tools to complete electrical tasks and must verify that all optical devices work as required. They should be proficient with blueprints, schematics, and drawings, and must follow strict safety procedures to minimize accidents while handling electro optical components. They often use protective gear such as goggles, hard hats, boots, and gloves, and report their progress to an electro optical supervisor. A bachelor's degree in an engineering-related field is generally required for this position, and prior experience in the industry is highly beneficial. Industry certifications are also helpful.
