Rudy’s Answer

Hi Saifullah
What you do as an Electrical Engineer will change over time.
At a high level:
* At the beginning, fresh out of University you will very likely be assigned a mentor and provide support to senior engineers as you learn more and become more confident in your skills
* After a couple of years, you may be assigned a small project or given part of a project. You will continue to work within a team, but with more autonomy.
* Later, as you continue to demonstrate your skills, learn the business and processes you may become the lead engineer of large projects.
* Eventually, over many years you may lead an organization full of engineers. Mentor new ones, etc.

So, your level of responsibilities will change over time.
As far as the technical work, that will depend on the industry you go into. Electrical engineers do different, but related, things depending on the products and systems of your chosen industry.
For example, if you go into consumer industry the things you do as an EE will be different than if you go into Aerospace industry.

You could apply reverse engineering to any technology and help improve it or disover a new way of doing things more efficiently and effective.

SM’s Answer

It's likely you would only get to know the specifics of your first job when your interview with prospective employers. Hence, I would recommend you start with some research into potential employers in your area and identify those whose products or services align with your career interests.

Once you identify the companies or firms you are interested in, I recommend you start building a professional network of contacts who are working in or familiar with the corresponding fields including employees in the identified companies or firms. You can start finding the first tier of contacts from faculty members in your department, your school's placement center assuming it has one or similar, or attending related conferences.

While it takes time to build such a network, it will be worthwhile even during later part of your career.

It's likely you may need further guidance on this journey. Do not hesitate to post further questions if any.
