Electrical Engineers research, develop, design, and test electronic components, products, and systems for commercial, industrial, medical, military, and scientific applications (Cosgrove 749). They are concerned with devices that use small amounts of electricity that make up electronic components such as integrated circuits and microprocessors. By applying principles and techniques of electronic engineering they design, develop, and manufacture products such as computers, telephones, radios, and stereo systems (EGOE, 121).

the market”(Michael Smith).
In 1996, there were 367,000 Americans holding electrical engineering jobs (Reyes-Guerra 213). Most worked at consulting firms, manufacturing companies, business machines, data processing companies, and telecommunications companies (Reyes-Guerra 213). Employment outlook through 2006 looks very good, and the engineering field is moving faster that average with the development of new technologies (BLS 6). And as Michael Smith said, ”As long as there is new technology, their will always be engineers to discover it (Michael Smith).”
