Electronics Engineer

How to become an Electronics Engineer

For an entry level position, an engineering undergraduate degree is usually required. Sometimes, an applicant with a natural sciences or mathematics degree may get an entry level job, but that is not nearly as common. The curriculum for engineers at colleges and universities tends to be a highly regimented one with requirements not only for what courses must be taken, but what sequence they must be taken in and in specific combinations. The curriculum emphasis is on math, the specific electrical engineering field, physics and other hard sciences. Students often take an extra year to complete their degrees due to the rigor of the programs, and like other engineering programs, there are always a few areas that pose consistent and high levels of difficulty for students.

Although a person could become a part of an engineering company or department and be considered an electronics engineer in general, the formal engineering designation is Professional Engineer (PE), which means that one is licensed by a particular state to offer their services directly to the public. In other words, the role of an engineer is broad, but the title of "engineer" is specific. There is no specific PE area of electronics engineering, but there are electrical and computer engineering areas of focus, both of which are often closely associated - and in some cases synonymous - with electronics engineering. As an additional note, not all PE categories are used in every state.

To become a PE, there are a number of requirements, including graduating with an undergraduate degree from a specially program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), four years of experience, and an exam. There are two stages of becoming a PE, each categorized by passing exams. Upon completion of the first exam, (Fundamentals of Engineering), the PE candidate is called an "engineer in training" or "engineer intern". The second exam (Principles and Practice of Engineering) is usually only able to be taken after some years of work experience. Site licensing varies and some states require continuing education while others do not. Independent from state and other governmental regulators, there are other professional organizations that offer certification in special areas of engineering, like electrical and computer engineering.

What does an Electronics Engineer do?

Although the tile of "engineer" can seem to be quite technical and specific, there are many areas of engineering; some of these areas are very different and some of them overlap quite a bit.

Electronics engineers work technology devices that often go into consumer electronics products or telecommunication devices, all devices that have some kind of computing function or which are often related to computers. Electronics engineers differ from electrical engineers, in that electrical engineers work on the design, manufacture, improvement and mai...
