Electrical Engineering Technicians

Tasks and Duties

  • Provide technical assistance and resolution when electrical or engineering problems are encountered before, during, and after construction.
  • Assemble electrical and electronic systems and prototypes according to engineering data and knowledge of electrical principles, using hand tools and measuring instruments.
  • Install and maintain electrical control systems and solid state equipment.
  • Modify electrical prototypes, parts, assemblies, and systems to correct functional deviations.
  • Set up and operate test equipment to evaluate performance of developmental parts, assemblies, or systems under simulated operating conditions, and record results.
  • Collaborate with electrical engineers and other personnel to identify, define, and solve developmental problems.
  • Build, calibrate, maintain, troubleshoot and repair electrical instruments or testing equipment.
  • Analyze and interpret test information to resolve design-related problems.
  • Write commissioning procedures for electrical installations.
  • Prepare project cost and work-time estimates.
  • Evaluate engineering proposals, shop drawings and design comments for sound electrical engineering practice and conformance with established safety and design criteria, and recommend approval or disapproval.
  • Draw or modify diagrams and write engineering specifications to clarify design details and functional criteria of experimental electronics units.
  • Conduct inspections for quality control and assurance programs, reporting findings and recommendations.
  • Prepare contracts and initiate, review and coordinate modifications to contract specifications and plans throughout the construction process.
  • Plan, schedule and monitor work of support personnel to assist supervisor.
  • Review existing electrical engineering criteria to identify necessary revisions, deletions or amendments to outdated material.
  • Perform supervisory duties such as recommending work assignments, approving leaves and completing performance evaluations.
  • Plan method and sequence of operations for developing and testing experimental electronic and electrical equipment.
  • Visit construction sites to observe conditions impacting design and to identify solutions to technical design problems involving electrical systems equipment that arise during construction.
