Electrical engineers design and build the electrical systems that power… well, everything.  For a world that is plugged in 24/7, this means that electrical engineers are in high demand across the nation—especially in high energy and production areas like Mississippi.

On an average day, an electrical engineer will oversee the creation of communications systems, motors, and production equipment.  The best engineers will be able to draw up intricate blue prints, communicate effectively with team members, and analyze and solve problems along the way.  They are creative, analytical, and teamwork-oriented.

Across the state, employers are paying electrical engineers an average of $80,000 per year, plus benefits.  Salaries quickly grow beyond six figures with experience, however.

Employers require a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, with some requiring a professional engineering license through organizations like the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying.

The spark behind the machine. For those who like knowing how things work–and can make it happen.
