Electronics Technicians work very closely with Engineers, as assistants to the Engineers.
Duties vary depending on the particular job, and can include tasks such as setting up assembly or test lines in manufacturing, estimating costs, inspecting and testing completed products, instructing production workers on assembly, and testing new products and repairing equipment at the customer's site.
Electronics Technicians apply electronic theory to design, build, test, repair and modify developmental, experimental or production electronic equipment. This work is done in industrial or commercial plants, and is used by engineering personnel in making engineering design and evaluation decisions.
Technicians usually work as part of a team, and more senior Technicians will often assist the more junior Technicians.
