Electronic Technicians work with electronic engineers. Their duties are more limited in scope and more practically oriented than those of engineers. They use their knowledge of electronic circuits to help in the design, development, troubleshooting, and manufacture of electronic equipment such as radar, sonar, television, industrial, and medical measuring or control devices, navigational equipment, and computers. Electronic Technicians follow mathematical formulas to build, test, and modify experimental electronic circuits and components. They may also construct, modify, and install laboratory test equipment and maintain the automated equipment used in the manufacture of electronic products.
