Electrical engineering technologists assist electrical engineers in process control, electrical power distribution, and instrument design. They may prepare layouts of transmission or distribution systems, supervise work flow, estimate project costs, or participate in research studies.
To become an electrical engineering technologist requires at least a bachelor's degree. Some employers will require several years of work-related experience, on-the-job training, and/or vocational training. Electrical engineering technologists earn approximately $30.38 per hour, and the need for them, grows at an average of 5% to 9% per year.
