Electronics Engineering Technicians

There is good reason to believe that the electronics industry will remain one of the most important industries in the United States through the next decade. Consumer products such as large screen and high-definition televisions, DVD players, personal computers, handheld devices, and home appliances with solid-state controls are constantly evolving and in high demand. Two areas showing growth are computer systems design and related services and telecommunications. Multimedia and interactive products are expanding rapidly, and many new products are expected in the coming years. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) reports that "demand for these technicians overall is expected to be sustained by demand for workers in this industry because of the continuing integration of computer and electronics systems. For example, computer, cellular phone, and global positioning system (GPS) technologies are being included in automobiles and various portable and household electronics systems."¬†In addition, increasing automation and computer-assisted manufacturing processes rely on advanced electronic technology.¬†Electromedical and biomedical subfields dealing with technical hospital machines have also been identified as high-demand areas.
