Power engineers are in charge of making sure that the electrical operations are running effectively and efficiently for their organization. They ensure electricity is properly generated and delivered in a steady, safe manner. A passion for innovation is important in this job, as some power engineers are required to develop solutions for more efficient electricity delivery. Power engineers need experience with electrical testing systems, and they must continuously carry out tests to make sure that operations are running smoothly and safely. They also need to conduct analyses of why failures occurred, determine how to fix them, and develop effective prevention methods as necessary.
