The job markets for engineering professionals today are booming. The future certainly looks bright for engineering professionals. There are variety of careers that require any engineering degree and anticipate requirements for electrical, mechanical and chemical engineers as well. The electromechanical engineers are one of the highly in demand engineering professionals.
What is Electromechanical Engineer?
Electromechanical Engineers visualize, design and create the many devices that are usual in our lives. It is the combination of electrical and mechanical engineering. Electromechanical Engineers carry the principles of electrical and mechanical engineering to the place of work. All kinds of products, from pop bottling machines to computer monitors to high-tech satellite systems are both electrical and mechanical in nature.
Duties of an Electromechanical Engineer
- The responsibility of an Electromechanical engineer is that they are mainly involved in designing, developing and maintaining broad range of electrical/electronic and mechanical systems or components by focusing on safety, economy, reliability, sustainability and quality.
- Implicated in a project from the idea and detail of the design to completion, testing and handover.
- Design products, systems and conducts a test.
- Make examples and models of products
- Identify the needs of the customer
- Research correct solutions and estimate timescale and costs.
- To monitor the product and improvise it for future features.
Work condition of an Electromechanical Engineer
- Study engineering designs of logic and digital circuit, motor controls, instrumentation, and data purchase for implementation into new or existing automated, servo mechanical, or other electromechanical systems.
- Team up with engineers to execute electromechanical designs in industrial or other settings.
- Transform electromechanical drawings into design specifications, applying principles of engineering, thermal and fluid sciences, mathematics and statistics.
- Install and program computer hardware and machine software in microprocessor-based systems.
- Fabricate mechanical, electrical, and electronic works and assemblies.
- Maintain inventory, records, and credentials systems.
Educational Requirements of Electromechanical Engineer
This profession may require a background in the following science; technology, engineering, and mathematics. (Bachelor’s degree (BS or B A) 4 years in college or university).
- 2-3 years experience preferred
- must know how to use Microsoft office, AutoCAD or any design software (2d, 3d).
- Good understanding of electrical, electronic and mechanical system
- knowledge with PLC, HMI, motion control, and drive programming
Occupation and Progress of Electromechanical Engineer
Electromechanical Engineers can go forward by specializing. Some Electromechanical Engineer is working on contracts and most of them were employees of big companies. Or even work as a supervisor or manager of a group of engineers/technicians or other employees. Most of Electrical Engineers advance by becoming sales representative or instructors/teachers.
