What Can You Do with an Electrical and Computer Engineering Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with an Electrical and Computer Engineering Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with an Electrical Engineering Degree?

Students who earn degrees in electrical engineering technology will likely find work helping engineers design, develop, test, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment. They might go into the manufacturing of communication equipment, computers, medical equipment, or even navigational equipment. They might also find work repairing electrical and electronic equipment. Many engineering technicians go to work for the government (91,000 in 2008).

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 164,000 electrical and electronic engineering technicians employed in 2008. The number of electrical and electronic engineering technician jobs is expected to decline by 2 percent between 2008 and 2018. Even though there is an increase in demand for electronic equipment, there is much foreign competition in design and manufacturing. Employment in this area is also influenced by economic conditions. Opportunities in this field will definitely be best for those applicants with degrees.
