Jobs of the Future – Electrical & Electronic Engineers

Matriculation students today are faced with a very difficult choice - at the age of 17, you have to make a decision about what you want to do for the rest of your life and then study it.

That's tough!

Auston College Myanmar is here to help you discover some of the jobs that will still be in demand and will be useful for the future. Read more below!

Electrical & Electronic Engineers, often known as EEE, are sought after all over the world. But why? The titles are so broad and as a young student considering this as a career, you may not know what implications it has for the future!

Let’s dive in.

Electrical and electronics are best separated by one common element:
The wall socket.

Electrical engineering is anything from the this wall socket backwards to the power plant. This includes the process of
– electrical cables
– distribution boxes
– long distance power cables
– traditional power plants
– renewable power generation
– distribution of power and transmission

This entire segment is what we call high voltage, that is, power in excess of 240v.

Then there is the Electronic engineering segment which is from the wall socket onwards to any device that becomes attached. This side of things is broadly the devices that we plug in or use, and the elements inside of them.

Example of a devices that we use on a daily basis that are considered electronics:
– air conditioners
– smart phones
– computers
– televisions

but within these devices are components such as:
– semiconductors
– micro controllers
– resistors
– capacitors
– voltage regulators
– infared sensors
– gyroscopes
– and many more

So why are EEE engineer a job of the future? To determine this we believe in a simple trend analysis.

1. Are more people using mobile devices now than in the last 3 years? How about in the next 5/10 years?
Designing, testing, producing these devices are largely down to industrial designers and EEE engineers.

2. Are more people connecting to the internet now that in the last 3 years? How about in the next 5/10 years?
Connecting to the internet needs internet service providers and telecommunication providers like (AGD, MPT, OOREDOO, TELENOR and etc). At the core of telecommunication providers are also EEE engineers.

3. Are more people going to use SMART devices and Artificial Intelligence?
SMART devices are only made SMART by a series of microcontrollers and semiconductors that take constant measurements from their surroundings and then match those measurements against a set of rules and guides that were programmed earlier. Designing the semiconductors, programming the microcontrollers and intergrating most of these parts together are mostly the work of EEE Engineers.

Another huge opportunity that Auston sees for all countries that we are in is the field of industrial automation. This is covered in our programmes as a Mechatronic focus.

In the past, factories that produced all kinds of products such as food, garments, car parts and more, were powered by human labour. This human labour was tough, low-wage, and required long and tedious work. In 2018, most countries and developing nations are pushing towards making their entire factories become run on robots. Why?
– quality is more consistent
– delivery is more reliable
– robots work more than 12 hours a day and do so consistently
And of course, they become more profitable.

This also frees up the humans to do more effective and interactive work that robots are unable to do.

It’s a win-win-win situation. However the catch is that you need someone to transform your factory for you. Going from an offline, human based factory, to an online, machine-powered factory is a huge change. Everything changes, in small steps but ultimately, everything needs to be adapted. This role is performed by 2 people:
– Electrical & Electronic Engineers
– Mechatronics Engineers (or System Integrators)

This represents a MASSIVE opportunity for Myanmar students who are keen on this as the future for such individuals who are ready to seize the opportunity.
