Electrical and electronics engineers are primarily concerned with how electricity is produced, transmitted and used. They design and test electrical and electronic equipment and systems.
As an electrical engineer in a mill, you will work closely with technical and operations personnel to monitor and optimize processes. You could also find yourself coordinating projects and trials to increase production, improve quality and reduce costs. You will also work to maximize mill uptime and the need for reliable power systems. Unexpected outages can create problematic amounts of waste, so you will work to prevent downtime so the mill can maintain production.
A degree in electrical engineering from a university is required.
