17-3029.04 - Electronics Engineering Technologists
Green occupations will likely change as a result of the green economy. Green economy activities and technologies are increasing the demand for occupations, shaping the work and worker requirements needed for occupational performance, or generating new and emerging occupations.
This is a Green New & Emerging occupation — the impact of green economy activities and technologies is sufficient to create the need for unique work and worker requirements, which results in the generation of new occupations.
Electronics engineering technologists work in the following green economy sectors:
- Manufacturing — This sector covers activities related to industrial manufacturing of green technology as well as energy efficient manufacturing processes.
- Research, Design, and Consulting Services — This sector encompasses "indirect jobs" to the green economy which includes activities such as energy consulting or research and other related business services.
They perform these tasks important to the green economy:
- Assemble or analyze electronics technologies to be used in electric-drive vehicles.
- Evaluate operational aspects of green consumer electronics applications, such as fuel cells for consumer electronic devices, power saving devices for computers or televisions, or energy efficient power chargers.
- Participate in the development or testing of new green electronics technologies, such as lighting, optical data storage devices, or energy efficient televisions.
- Test solar photovoltaic products, such as inverters or energy management systems.
