As a Bachelor of Engineering (DH) Electrical Installations you will resolve technical problems and issues related to practice in electrical installations using appropriate procedures and in the most cost-effective way possible. You will normally specialise in a technical area of electrical installations/electronics. Four main areas are available to choose from:
- Information technology
- Electrical energy technology
- Metrology, control engineering and automation
- Microelectronics and microsystems technology
Typical roles for electrical installations engineers (f/m) are:
- Research and development: Simulating, calculating, designing and testing new electrical/electronics assembly parts, units, machines, installations and systems
- Process technology: Product manufacturing processes, creating test systems, assembly, commissioning, maintenance and operating electrical installations and systems
- Sales/product management: Technical customer service and support, identifying trends in technology and implementing these with the administrative departments
- Purchasing: Technical procurement, interface to the development team and production areas
- Operations scheduling and quality assurance, business organisation and management
- Further training
Your role also encompasses the application and further development of engineering skills, taking into account commercial considerations on the one hand and statutory and safety regulations and standards on the other.
The role is predominantly based in research and development laboratories, design offices and other office environments, but also on the production or manufacturing floor.
