The electronic engineer have the question)

  1. Mar 23, 2008 #1
    hi all. I am from Russia. I want to ask a question as called my specialty. I am going to work in Canada. My speciality in Russia called designer radio electronic equipment. Now my responsibilities at work are: the choice of future device design, spatial layout comprising elements modeling hull parts, the development of documentation. In the Canada's N.O.C. it is Major Group 21 (2133 electronic engineer). But what next? Electronics - a vast industry. How can I describe my specialization for the future of the Canadian employer?

    PS: I apologize for my English, I have been actively studying now. Please write if meet grammatical errors.

    Welcome to PF, Rip... and welcome to Canada.
    I can't help with your question because I don't know the protocols of the industry. You seemed to explain your specialty pretty well in your post. Your English seems very good. The grammar structure is a bit off-kilter, but still understandable. The structure will come with experience once you're here, so don't worry about it. Your accent might be more of an issue. Most Russian or Slavic people that I've heard speaking have very 'thick' speech in that same way that a Scottish brogue is thick. If you try to 'lighten' the accent by enunciating every word individually, you should have no problems. Don't be offended if people ask you to repeat yourself.

    Thank you Danger. Thank you for your reply, assessment and advice.
    But my question is still relevant.

    Given your situation, I wouldn't get hung up too much on terminology. It is well understood that there are differences in how countries operate. Why not just use exactly what you already used? I would think that a very brief job description of what you did on your resume will suffice to get the ball rolling. From there anyone interested in your abilities will ask you directly.

    I didn't mean to imply that it wasn't; merely that I don't know the answer. Sorry if it appeared otherwise. :smile:

    2FredGarvin: Do you mean that there is no such classification of specialization? Mean it is simply described in the resume.

    I can't say I have ever seen an "official" title like that. What I would expect to see is someone that is an electrical or electronics engineer who specializes in radio electronic equipment.

    "electronics engineer who specializes in radio electronic equipment"

    I like how it sounds)
    I realized there is no such classification of occupations, as in Russia
