Helping you find a career in the Electrical engineering industry

Electrical and electronics engineers work to design, develop and build electrical components and systems which can be used in a variety of different industries, from construction to nanotechnology, and from medical technology to power systems. Many larger technology or telecoms businesses will have substantial numbers of electronics or electrical engineers.

Apprenticeships are a great route into electrical/electronics engineering. Many larger firms will recruit a number of apprentices at both Advanced Apprentice and Higher/Degree Apprentice levels. Employers can be manufacturing businesses, construction firms, or technology businesses among others.

Quite often electrical and electronic engineers will work as part of a broader project alongside engineers from other background (for instance structural or production engineers). Electrical engineering positions are available in both the private and public sector, while electronics engineers tend to be more concentrated in the private sector.

Electrical engineers will focus on large-scale electrical systems from factories to motors and supplying homes and businesses with electricity. Typically, this will involve working on problems of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. Electrical engineering is crucial to both infrastructure projects, as well as the design of household and business appliances.

Electronics engineers work on smaller-scale systems and components. Electronics engineering has grown enormously in recent years, with the growth in the size and sophistication of the technology sector. Electronics engineers will specialise in a specific sub-section of the profession (e.g. signal processing or telecommunications engineering).

Electrical and electronics engineers can work in a variety of different working environments, from laboratories to construction sites or in offices. Often you will work alongside non-specialists on project teams and may also meet with clients or customers to discuss their solutions and to understand their needs and requirements. You will usually need to explain highly technical information to non-experts, or to write reports. You will also need to be able to understand complex data and produce useable product and systems specifications.


Skills & interests required for a career in Electrical engineering
You will be expected to have a passion for new technologies and approaches using electronics or in the ways in which electrical systems can be built and improved. You will also need to have a flexible and innovative approach to using systems and problem-solving skills to solve complicated industrial problems.

Some level of technical knowledge will be expected from applicants for positions in electrical or electronics engineering. You will also want to have strong problem-solving skills, numeracy and the ability to analyse large data sets.
Electrical engineering apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers
Most large-scale employers of electrical or electronics apprentices operate structured Apprentice training programmes on an annual basis. Typically, these programmes will run over a 2-4 year period, offering apprentices the opportunity to rotate across a number of different areas of the business before choosing their specialisation. Once completed you will usually attain an NVQ Level 3 or 4, plus a technical engineering qualification.

Smaller-scale businesses may recruit electrical/electronics engineers throughout the year, though training for apprentices at smaller businesses might receive less formal training and will get more hands-on experience quicker than at a larger business.

Once you have completed your training, many firms will offer you the support to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status via the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), or through another Engineering Council-approved institution. Securing CEng or IEng status can be critical to ensuring that you progress your career in the industry, enabling you to lead and manage projects.

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you may specialise in a particular sub-discipline of electrical or electronics engineering, or within a particular business unit (e.g. Research & Development – R&D). There may be opportunities for you to gain commercial skills (e.g. in marketing and sales, or project management), which can help you progress to more senior levels.
Tips for getting into the field
Arrange a meeting with your careers advisor to discuss your interest in working in electrical or electronics engineering.

Work experience can be highly beneficial in securing your first position in the industry as an apprentice. Explore opportunities with local businesses to see whether there might be opportunities for you to get some experience of the sort of work an electrical/electronics engineer might do

Become a student member of the IET to make sure that you are up-to-date with the latest developments in electrical or electronics engineering. This will help you stand out in your applications and at interview stage.
What do Electrical engineering professionals get paid?
The average starting salary for an apprentice electrical/electronics engineer is £12,000 per annum. Once you have completed your apprenticeship you might expect a salary between £20,000 and £30,000 per annum. Larger businesses may offer salaries at the higher end of this range.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Electrical engineering?
If you are planning to apply for an advanced apprenticeship should have, or be expecting, a minimum of 4 GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade 4 (C) including maths, English and science.

If you are applying for a Higher/Degree Apprenticeship should have a BTEC National Certificate/A-Levels in a relevant discipline.
