Some assist engineers and scientists in research and development. Others prepare specifications for materials, devise and run tests to ensure product quality, or study ways to improve manufacturing efficiency. They may also supervise production workers to make sure they follow prescribed procedures.

Electrical technicians usually begin by performing routine duties under the close supervision of an experienced technician, technologist, engineer, or scientist. Although it is possible to qualify for some engineering technician jobs with no formal training, most employers prefer to hire someone with at least a 2-year degree in engineering technology.

As production of technical products continues to grow, competition will force companies to improve and update manufacturing facilities and product designs, and that means plenty of opportunities for electrical and electronics technicians.
Apply electrical and electronic theory and related knowledge, usually under the direction of engineering staff, to design, build, repair, calibrate, and modify electrical components, circuitry, controls, and machinery for subsequent evaluation and use by engineering staff in making engineering design decisions.
