Opportunities for electrical engineers As the automotive market has evolved in recent years, so have the skill sets that the biggest players in the automotive industry are looking for. We have seen a growing demand for electrical engineers, for both permanent and contract roles, to help the traditional OEMs ramp up their production of electric vehicles.
The job opportunities for electrical engineers are increasingly varied, with requirements for electrical engineers at the design and concept phase of new vehicles, as well as engineering vehicle parts during the build phase. And of course, electrical engineering skills continue to be needed for projects involving traditionally-fuelled vehicles too.
Some of the most sought-after roles for electrical engineers in the automotive industry include electrical distributions systems (EDS), 3D design, design verification, systems and circuit engineers.
