Challenges of Being an Electrical Engineer?

  1. Feb 9, 2010 #1
    This is to all the practicing EEs out there.
    What are some of the challenges of electrical engineering work? Is it varied? What is your role (esp. wrt to EE technologists/technicians)?

    Preferably, answers will come from various specialties and roles (please state them).
    For example: power systems, communication, electronics, control, electromagnetics/RF, photonics...

    I think that I am missing something by reading Wikipedia, US BLS, and university dept websites.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS Don't worry if you are a different kind of engineer. I will probably post a similar question for you later.
