What Does an Electronic Systems Technician Do?
Some careers seem to have ambiguous names or titles that give little indication of what the job actually entails. Perhaps some enjoy this air of mystery, but in reality, there isn't too much hiding behind the title "electronic systems technician." The name is so vague, though, because these professionals are generalists. They work on a wide variety of electronic systems in both residential and commercial settings. It would simply do the career, and their work, a disservice to label them anything more specific since they are so multi-talented. Still, if you prefer to imagine that the name is so vague because electronic systems technicians double as James Bond-like spies, we won't stop you.
While they may not be fighting off bad guys, electronic systems technicians perform work that touches nearly every part of our day-to-day lives. Nearly everything we use these days relies on electricity, and that means there will always be wiring to set up, glitches to fix and room for advancement in renewable energy. Lincoln Tech’s Electronic Systems Technician program focuses on prepping students for installation and service of residential, commercial and industrial systems. In this field, electronic systems technicians work at construction sites, homes, large corporations and anywhere someone with technical skills in low-voltage technology is needed. Students will practice installing cable support structures, drilling pathways for wiring and cables, installing pathways and spaces for installation of low-voltage wiring, copper and fiber-optic work, programming digital components and user training.
If you are interested in getting your foot in the door of this highly desirable electric world, a career as an electronic systems technician would be a great place to start. You will be able to understand a wide variety of tasks and systems and gain the on-the-job experience that many other advanced electrician jobs require.
