작업 설명

Since the advent of electronics, modern consumer products have become increasingly enhanced with technological features. From circuits to sensors, we’re surrounded by goods that have electronic components embedded inside. Such intricate components require highly-trained Electronics Technicians to install, maintain, and repair them, as needed. 

These specialists work with a wide range of product types — everything from computers and microwaves to sound, security, and avionics systems. Some technicians specialize in one area, while others are able to troubleshoot and repair just about anything. They may also be tasked to replace old components or systems and entirely replace them with upgrades.

  • Keeping electronic systems running smoothly and safely
  • Preventing potentially costly or harmful disruptions
  • Getting to work on a variety of electronic parts and systems
  • Potentially landing a job requiring a security clearance (which may mean more pay)

기대와 희생

Electronics Technicians are relied upon to ensure electronic components and systems operate as intended. Depending on the issue, electronic failures from overheating, stress, incorrect voltage, or other factors can be costly or even dangerous depending on the situation. Technicians are required to be thoroughly knowledgeable in their field and able to perform duties correctly and efficiently. 

That said, they aren’t expected to know everything! Technicians often need to study manufacturer technical manuals to troubleshoot and fix items they haven’t worked on before. Thus, there is a constant learning curve, even for those who have been in the business for a while. 

For techs who work in roles requiring a security clearance, they must maintain it through exemplary personal conduct. This may necessitate taking extra care about posting on social media, managing debt, and generally staying out of trouble.

현재 동향

As with every technology-related industry, the field of electronics is changing and advancing. For starters, electronics are being incorporated into more and more products every year. From electric vehicles to wearable technology that connects to the Internet and the cloud, designers and manufacturers keep finding ways to enhance their goods with the help of electronic components. Indeed, the Internet of Things concept seeks to digitally connect all manner of objects via sensors and software — which should translate to plenty of electronic work opportunities for many years to come. 

이 직업에 종사하는 사람들은 어렸을 때 어떤 종류의 일을 즐겼습니까?

Electronics Technicians may have enjoyed tinkering with electronic devices and gadgets when they were younger, disassembling them to see what’s inside while referencing books or videos to learn how they operate. They were probably always comfortable working with small hand tools, immersed in whatever projects they were fixated on. Most likely, they were relatively patient and able to maintain focus for long periods while applying problem-solving skills and paying close attention to little details.

교육 및 훈련 필요

필요한 교육

대학에서 찾아야 할 것들
  • Electronics Technicians don’t need a four-year degree from a university to get started. Students can complete an associate’s at a local community college or vocational training school
  • General considerations for any program include tuition costs (in-state/out-of-state rates), discounts, scholarships, and course delivery options (on-campus, online, or hybrid program). Some electronics courses may be best suited for in-person learning so you can get hands-on training
  • Ideally, you’ll want a degree from an ABET-accredited program! 
고등학교와 대학에서해야 할 일
  • High school students can prepare by taking classes in English, math, physics, and computer science
  • Decide if you want to apply to an associate’s degree program at a community college, vocational school, or university. A university’s tuition rates will likely be higher but decide what’s right for you
  • Think about areas you might want to specialize in, such as avionics, fiber optics, automotive, wireless communications, or other fields
  • Look for optional, entry-level certifications to complete that can boost your credentials
  • Talk to teachers or counselors about opportunities where you can pick up real-world job skills as you learn
  • Apply for part-time jobs working with electronics, so you can gain experience and cite some work history on your resume
  • 향후 직업 참조 역할을 할 수 있는 연락처 목록(전화번호 또는 이메일 포함) 유지 
  • Check out hobby books, read articles, and watch video tutorials about safe electronic repair 
  • Stay inspired by reading about successful tech entrepreneurs who started out by tinkering with electronics
  • Due to safety risks, don’t attempt to work on electronics without the supervision of a professional
  • Get a few basic electronics repair hand tools, a workbench, lamp, magnifier, anti-static mat and wrist strap, and other supplies you might need to tinker at home — but again, make sure you have a trained person around to help 
    • One of the keys to safety is planning ahead and thinking about potential hazards. Make sure you closely follow all safety protocols to avoid exposure to shocks, burns, or harmful heavy metals like lead or mercury
  • Hop online to engage in electronics forums where you can ask questions and learn  
  • Get started on a draft resume early, so you don’t forget anything
