Electronics Engineers research, design and develop electronic equipment ranging from radios and televisions
through to satellite guidance and communication systems. They design individual electronic components and the
ways these components fit together and communicate to achieve the desired result. When developing new
technologies, electronics engineers must test them rigorously, to ensure they work properly and consistently, and in
some cases, that the technology will work in devices developed by other engineers. The technologies that electronics
engineers develop can be used in areas such as communication, entertainment, defense, and manufacturing and
wherever else equipment is electronically controlled.
Electronic Engineers focus on the manufacturing of various types of electronic equipment, including communications
and navigation systems, motors and power generation equipment. To manufacture these pieces of equipment and
Electronic Engineers create designs and build prototypes. Most work is accomplished in offices, although site visits
are sometimes required. Electronic Engineer Design electronic components, software, products, or systems for
commercial, industrial, medical, military, or scientific applications, Analyze customer needs and determine the
requirements, capacity, and cost for developing an electrical system plan and Develop maintenance and testing
procedures for electronic components and equipment. They Evaluate systems and recommend design modifications
or equipment repair. They also inspect electronic equipment, instruments, and systems to make sure that they meet
safety standards and applicable regulations.
Planning and developing applications and modifications for electronic properties used in parts and systems in order
to improve technical performance is done by electronic engineer. Although specific duties may vary, many of them
prepare necessary criteria, procedures, reports, or plans for successful conduct of the project with consideration
given to site preparation, facility validation, installation, quality assurance, or testing.
Most Electronics Engineers work in offices and laboratories in the Perth metropolitan area. They usually work in
clean, well-lit environments, to make working with very small components easier. Some travel to work sites and
clients’ offices for to carry out installation and servicing work.
