Where it Can Take You
Electronic technologists must be able to work and communicate with customers as well as scientists and engineers as well as supervise and co-ordinate skilled technical personnel. They may be involved in a wide variety of work responsibilities including research, design, construction, testing,sales, modification, operation, installation and maintenance of electronic equipment.
A technologist may work as a member of a team or be required to assume individual responsibility for a project, a laboratory or an electronic system. Many positions involve technical writing and nearly all require well-developed customer relations skills. The progressive nature of electronics means technologists can expect to be involved in frequent on-the-job-training and upgrading throughout their careers. Some positions may require field work, extensive travel, shift work or time in isolated areas.
