MORE DECKS TO EXPLORE
By: Rowan Senence
Nature of the Career
Uses technology to understand light information and the use of light energy.
The tools to help understand and use light are materials like image systems, lasers, fiber optics etc.
Photonic Engineers try improve systems and products. Making cutting edge technology for high tech companies to use.
NAture of The CAreer
The science of photonics is the generation, transmission, modulation, and detection of light.
For example Photonic Engineers try to improve light sources, manufacturing, defense, telecommunications, and medicine.
Nature of the Career
The main goal of a Photonics Engineer is to make better products for everyone to use.
Photonic Engineers shape the future of the world, using more advance ways to utilize products.
Making easier products to use but in a very efficient scale using lasers and lights.
EDUCATIOn/ Training Required
Education could range upon Bachelor's Degrees or even PhD's, depending on how advance the position you are aiming for. Also must have a School Diploma.
You must have knowledge like CADD, CAM to operate systems. Mechanical engineering, engineering science, electrical engineering degrees are required as well.
Training could involve things such as being a assistance to the more experience Photonics Engineer.
Other traits needed should be creative, analytical, inquisitive and detailed oriental.
Attire/Uniform For Proffesion
The Photonic Engineer typically works indoors.
Photonic Engineer like other Engineers needs to look professionally. There is no need for flashy outfits but you shouldn't wear a casual shirt like a T-Shirt to work.
A polo and a good set up pants to work efficently but also looking professionally.
Depending on your education, you can advance greatly in this field.
Having a bachlor's degree can get you a median job. But if you get a master's or PhD you can manage or even teach Photonic Engineering.
Usually being an assistant, then regular worker, manager and then even a professor in the field.
Getting a Photonic Engineer job is a very moderate to hard job to acquire. Depending heavily on how your education is on math and science.
.Photonic Engineers are in moderate demand and moderate employment, although demands after 10 years are above average.
The wages earned is very dependant on your type of education.
A typical Photonic Engineer can earn $94,310 per year.
Salaries can start at $49,140 and rise to $144,000! Depending on the company and amount of education you have aquired.
Why This Job?
This job helps create a better future for our world by making new products to help in our everyday lives.
Subjects like math, science and computers are a preferable topic to study and work with.
Great money gain with teamwork and effort, instead of indivdual workers.
All in all, a Photonic Engineer works with lights and lasers to make better products.
The job is interesting using science, math and computers in a team to shape the future.
