How much do Electrical and electronic engineers engineers earn?
Quite an irrelevant question coming from a medic, you might say, but I am interested in how much you guys earn.
Would an engineer earn more or less than a Dr or a lawyer?
What are the hours like - the two above are quite intensive - is engineering the same?
What sort of sectors are the most popular - railways or road etc. ?
I am talking about graduates here, not so-called engineers who are really repair men.
Question answered by whycantigetagoodnickname
Graduate engineer about £18 to £20k, an hourly rate a bit higher than lawyer or doctor, however after a few years practice a doctor should be earning lots more than most engineers. Lawyers depend on the type of law they practice.
Hours for engineer are typically 9-5 unless they are working on site, when it is typically 10-12 hour days. Junior doctors used to work 95 hour weeks but I believe that has been cut to about 45 now.
Electrical engineers work in all industries and I can't say where most are
Which are the most useful languages for an electronic engineer to learn?
My mother tongue is spanish, but I also speak English. I think I should also learn chinese, which languages are best for electronic engineers?
Question answered by The Open University
I imagine that your question relates to improving employment opportunities and will answer therefore from that perspective.
For general information on a career in Electronic Engineering, have a look at the Prospects graduate website at http://www.prospects.ac.uk/links/signposts - select Electrical/electronic engineering from the drop-down list. This brings you to various links that are worth checking out; for example, job options, further study and career areas.
'What next?’ has a section on ‘working abroad’ - it includes fairly general guidance though, rather than specific information on language requirements.
The link to ‘contacts and resources’ is also worth following up for contact details of various professional bodies. For example, it would be worth contacting The Engineering Council UK (the regulatory body for the engineering profession) at http://www.engc.org.uk/ for information about specific language skills that will enhance your CV and job prospects.
Incidentally, the Prospects site also has information, on applications, CVs and interviews that may be useful when searching for employment: http://www.prospects.ac.uk/cms/ShowPage/Home_page/Applications__CVs_and_interviews/p!eefmd .
You may have already done so but if not, contact the careers service at the university offering this course as information regarding skills, included useful languages for this professional area, should be available there.
Allow some time for your research as you may want to check out other links. I hope this helps answer your query.
How is an Electronic Engineer related to renewable energy?
What skills and qualifications do you need to become an electronic engineer?
What are the duties involved in that job?
What would be the best enjoyment of having this job?
can u please try to answer all 4 questions =]
Question answered by N a e
An electronic engineer is related to renewable energy mainly in the fields of electricity. I would say wind energy and Photovoltaics.
Regarding the other questions:
1. The qualifications depends on the country and university. but i would say it would be great if you are interested in electronic systems and eletronic applications. You should be in love with the field you want to live 3/4 your lifetime in (My personal Motto).
2. Duties mainly involve design, research, studies, installation and comissioning of wind turbines, Photovoltaic cells...
3. Renewable energy is a very interesting topic. it is the topic of the near future. I work in renewable energy and i do know how wonderful work here is. As for electronics, I am not actually in this field, but i assume it is as interesting as mechanics.
How does one become a Professional Electronic Engineer in the UK ?

What softwares should electronic engineer know, what is primavera and matlab?
Being an electronic engineer what softwares should a person know? I know some softwares name like matlab, pcb123, multisim, auotcad, primavera etc. Do I need to learn all these softwares? What is the purpose of matlab and primavera softwares?
Question answered by WtchTwr
Matlab is a programming software generally used to simulate simple programs. the syntax is very user friendly and from my memory it wasn't as fussy as programming in C++. The program is very user friendly and is actually pretty good for some basic programs, and can even hold its own when dealing with some more in depth programs.
Primavera as I know it is a program primarily used for project management. I wouldn't concern myself with this as you can always learn it later on for use in your career.
Any CAD program is good to have as a background in all engineering disciplines as you may have to look at drawings at some point in your career, but you will probably leave the actual drafting to a drafts person.
Focus mainly on learning the fundamentals and principles. Worry about software later on in your education. If you don't have a solid knowledge of the theory, you can never fully understand the software.
How can I work for the federal government with a degree in electronic engineering technology?
I am currently enrolled in college pursuing a bachelor's of science in electronic engineer technology. So, far I am in my second year completing my main English core requirements and one humanities out of the three required. My question is what are the course requirements to take in college that would allow me to work for the federal government? Do I need to take a law course as part of my degree as well as ethical and legal issues for my humanities?
Question answered by Jay
There are plenty of opportunities for electric engineers within the Federal government. Certainly, the military has great need. But also NASA (the shuttle program has ended, but this doesn't mean that they won't be working on the next great thing), Department of Energy, the Patent and Trademark Office (they NEED engineers to review technical parent applications), and elsewhere.
Law courses are not required unless you plan to practice law for the government.
Can a mechatronic engineer work as a mechanical, electrical OR electronic engineer?
Does a bachelor in mechatronic teach enough for the graduate to find a job as a mechanical, electrical OR electronic engineer?
Does a mechatronic engineer has any good job prospect or is a mechanical or elecrical engineer far better? So a mechatronic engineer is not at all an expert in both mechanical and electrical and electronic engineer?
Question answered by mariskalen kampf Strudl v.Wurst!
Absolutely. Actually, nowadays, an engineer is almost required to have multiple skills which a mechatronic engineer already has.
No engineer can know everything, but he should be able to "makeup" what he does not, as needed. In addition, no two jobs are equal, so, it is impossible to have all the skills needed after graduation.
How good is it to select Electronic Engineering as you career?
I have got admission in BS Electronic Engineering. I want to ask that is it a good field to chose? Are there abundant jobs for the Electronic Engineers? How good or bad would be my future?
Question answered by Thet
You can't tell the future.
I graduated as a Civil Engineer in 1975. For the next 15 years I kept my eye on the job markets, even though I had a mediocre jobs working at shipyards, the highway dept., and corps of engineers.
I wished I had chosen EE as my carreer. There were many more job opportunities in this field. The want ads was loaded with EE ads, where CE ads were just a few. This use to piss me off. If I only could go back and change it.
Also, knowledge of anything electrical will help you in other fields besides just engineering. My degree was more restrictive in regards to oportunities.
The future might hold more opportinities for EE's than the past, but this is just my guess.
Is electrical engineering and electronic engineering the same or studied under the same major?
I'm finding it hard to find a university that offers electronic engineering as a major.
Question answered by Sun
Electrical Engineering may or may not include Electronics Engineering. It depends on a university's policy. So it is better for you to call the university to see whether or not Electronics Engineering is included in Electrical Engineering.
Can I take Neuroscience and Electronic Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin?
I'm learning towards a interest in taking Neuroscience and Electronic Engineering. My main goal is to create electronic devices (with knowledge from Electronic Engineering) for the brain (Neuroscience) and all it's workings.
I want to make sure that I've selected the right education paths and that I'm able to do them both.
Question answered by Matt
I think you need to a lot more research.
For example, are you asking if you can double major at UT Austin? Use Google and find out. Are you asking if they offer both of those majors? Same deal.
Are you even aware of the state of any kind of brain implant technology? Because, for someone with such a very specific career in mind, it doesn't really seem like you are, nor does it seem like you really understand what kind of education you'd need to actually do that.
Have you ever considered biomedical engineering?
It honestly seems like you just picked stuff at random, two majors, a career goal, and a school, which is why you REALLY need to do your own research. We can't do it all for you.
