Electrical Engineer Jobs

Electrical Engineers are responsible for designing and implementing power distribution systems.  They will constantly be reviewing new trends and technologies to design the most innovative and functional power systems, working on both construction and renovation projects. Employers will be looking for electrical engineers with consulting experience in the design of electrical systems including new services, distribution, grounding, lighting and fire detection systems.

What does an electrical engineer do?

Electrical Engineer duties can include field investigation, design, production of contract documents, specification writing and construction administration services. For more senior Electrical Engineers, or where working as part of a team, project management responsibilities may also be expected.

Electrical Engineers can be employed on a contract basis or permanently as part of an engineering company.  Many companies also employ their own on-site Electrical Engineers where duties tend to revolve more around troubleshooting and maintenance of power distribution systems.  Electrical engineer jobs can be working with power systems dealing with anything from 13.8kV down to 480V, including substations, raceways, switchgear, and motor controls. Some work also includes fire alarms, lighting, and routing of telecom and computer cabling. 

Electrical Engineers will use CAD packages as part of their work.
