Job roles: Embedded electronic systems design and development engineer
As an embedded electronic systems design and development engineer you could be providing products to companies in a wide variety of industries. Your work will be in high demand from buyers in the aerospace, car, robotics, telecommunications, IT and consumer electronics sectors, to name but a few.
Taking an apprenticeship in embedded electronic systems could see you working on new generation smartphones, electric vehicles, communications satellites, smart grids and bringing concepts such as smart cities into reality.
Your apprenticeship will train you to apply your knowledge of electronics and of embedded software to the design of circuits or devices that provide a useful function, are capable of being manufactured at a competitive cost, and that are reliable and safe to use. Engineers have a good working knowledge of electronics and electronic principles, and an expert understanding of how the final product will be used.
