Electrotechnology

Almost every aspect of our lives is impacted by this industry including lighting and power in our homes, schools, hospitals and workplaces, everyday appliances, entertainment, transport (including cars, trucks, trains, aeroplanes and ships) and manufacturing industries.

The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) is the peak industry body that represents the best interests of the electrical and communications contracting industry in Australia. Their website has valuable information on pathways to a career in electrotechnology. They are also involved in training through the College of Electrical Training.

The ICT WA careers website has a very informative section on Electrical and Electronic Engineering including Universities, TAFEs and Private Colleges offering training in this field.

Training in this industry is often by way of an Apprenticeship.

Higher level careers like Electrical or Electronics Engineers require university level education.
