TRY IT NOW!

Electrical engineers play a vital role in manufacturing because of complex electrical components

Primary electrical project duties often include:

  • Concept and development
  • Create technical drawings of schematics or prints
  • Working with electrical components
  • Build electronic control panels or wire cabinets
  • Create an electrical system or electronic device
  • Supplying power to equipment
  • Read and interpret blueprints or technical drawings
  • Establish communications between PLC and automation devices
  • Troubleshooting or debugging client equipment
  • Safety verifications
  • Testing equipment
  • Validate electrical components communications systems

As a contract electrical engineer, you must be very hands-on with your work as customer projects are often quite demanding.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS ARE ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT SAFETY

CONCEPT AND DESIGN

Electrical engineers design the drawings or schematics and make sure they meet electrical codes. A contract electrical engineer can also design an electrical system, equipment, or electronic device.

ALWAYS CAUTIOUS

Electrical engineer works with their hands on their projects; therefore, they need to be extremely cautious, especially when working with dangerous voltage and amperage levels. Nevertheless, these engineers respect electrical power to keep themselves and others safe.

VALIDATION

Often electrical engineers will be responsible for the control systems performance testing and qualifications of any electronic device, electronic components, or electrical system. Any electrical equipment is under the direct supervision of the on-site electrical engineer. 

TROUBLESHOOTING

These engineers will fix or repair any electrical issue that may emerge. Troubleshooting an electrical system is often difficult if other electrical components are not labeled properly. However, troubleshooting electrical components is a skill that is often mastered after years of work experience, on many projects, during one’s career in electrical engineering.

SAFETY

When working in manufacturing, electrical engineering professionals must ensure all electrical parts meet electric codes and client specifications. This ensures that the systems and products are safe and also operate. These engineers develop electrical components, electronic devices, and electrical systems to meet all safety regulations.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEER SALARY

As the world becomes more electrified, the demand for electrical engineers will continue to grow, and so will the salary.

Those who have work experience with multiple electrical devices, controls, or systems, can earn a much greater salary than other electrical engineering professionals.

A senior electrical engineer is expected to lead an electrical team and have a broad knowledge base of electronics, which will allow them to have a higher average salary.

Contract electrical engineers will find that hourly rates vary per project and are dependent on experience, the specific electrical skill required, and location.

BECOMING A SELF-EMPLOYED ELECTRICAL ENGINEER

ANALYZE

Electrical engineering requires one to examine all electrical components or products for a client properly. In addition, the engineer must review the electronic equipment and control systems, ensuring they function without fault.

DIAGNOSTICS

Debugging electronic equipment and establishing communications play a key role in their day-to-day operations. Determining where electrical power failures have occurred, then finding a solution is why electrical engineering experts are paid a great wage. 

DOCUMENTATION

It is important to keep client records updated and document any changes to technical drawings. These engineers will often work with a software engineer to adjust the hardware or software configuration. It is critical that proper records of these changes are documented, which will later help with any troubleshooting or future diagnostic tests.

SOFTWARE

It is important to have some software engineering knowledge and have the ability to learn new software programs. This is a skill that should be learned when working with control systems or design modeling software. 

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

Having a good understanding of general mechanical or manufacturing systems will help any engineer become a more well-rounded expert in their field. When using any power electronics, working with a mechanical engineer is common, as the electrical and mechanical components must work together in the system.
