Electrical engineer


Engineer, Electric vehicles and charging

General description

Electrical engineers design, plan, study, evaluate, and test electrical equipment and systems. They help develop electric vehicles and charging stations by designing various components (e.g., traction control and speed regulator for electric vehicles and cables and energy meters for charging stations). They also serve as a technical resource to present diagnostics and advise clients. They are in high demand due to the burgeoning electric and smart transportation industry. They have the opportunity to work on the latest technology within a multidisciplinary team that includes enthusiastic and qualified engineers and technicians. They also help create a range of electrification strategies and develop innovative charging stations to support electric mobility!
