Many electronic goods are manufactured using automated processes. Both the end product and the manufacturing equipment that creates them need trained technicians and engineers for development and maintenance.
Advanced manufacturing jobs might require external design of a product, the electronic circuits on the inside, or the automated equipment that assembles the product. Applications include a wide variety of manufacturing and robotics-driven processes as well as business fields with complex computer systems such as banking and commerce.
Automated systems are used to produce electronic devices used in all industries – including manufacturing, computer-aided design, information technology, communications, medical and surgical devices and defense. With technology changing almost daily, highly trained workers are needed across all fields that require automated manufacturing skills.
