Career Opportunities

The advances made in electronics over the past few decades have been phenomenal, and therefore any person holding this qualification must always be prepared to keep abreast of the latest developments. The field of electronics includes telecommunications, radio and television, radar, computers, electronic control systems and industrial electronic systems, especially computer-supported equipment. Qualified persons will also be involved in the development, building and maintenance of new equipment. Companies such as the SABC, Sentech, Eskom and Telkom, the mining industry, industrial plants such as Sasol and Columbus Steel, as well as research institutions, are but a few possible employers. A person holding such a qualification could also establish his/her own business.
