Skills & interests required for an Electronics engineer
An electronics engineer needs to be technically skilled in engineering techniques, capable of applying them to small-scale products. Turning complex ideas into clear concepts is key, too. Most electronics engineers will work with tiny components, so you need an eye for detail and also extreme accuracy. You will often be working alongside non-technical colleagues so will need to be able to explain technical ideas in clear and simple ways.
