Electronic Systems

electronic systems engineering

Engineers who specialize in electronic systems work with electronic circuits and devices such as those in computers.


Electronics engineers design, develop, test and keep electronic parts working and up to date. These parts can be found in computers, video games, and GPS systems, and many more.

Electronics systems engineers:

  • Use computers to control things like the thermostats in hospitals
  • Make computer parts for satellites. These parts have to be able to work in space.  

In your community

Today just about everything we use has some kind of electronics in it. For example, snowmobiles, televisions, computers, refrigerators all work because of electronic systems engineers.

In your community what happens when these things break down? By studying to become an electronic systems engineer you could help your family and friends save money when their electronic things stop working. This also saves the environment, so you don’t have to go out and buy new things, you can just fix the old ones!
