Responsibilities and Duties
Electrical maintenance engineers have many varied job duties based on how extensive the hiring company’s electrical systems and related equipment are. These basic core duties, however, are universal across all industries and work environments:
Perform Scheduled Maintenance
Electrical maintenance engineers perform scheduled maintenance and preventative repairs on all electrical systems, equipment, and machinery. People in this profession also review maintenance schedules and adjust them as necessary to keep systems functioning at peak levels.
Repair Electrical Systems
Electrical maintenance engineers act quickly to make on-the-spot repairs when electrical systems and machinery malfunction.
The electrical maintenance engineer in charge of any electrical system must make inspections and assess potential problems. These professionals also recommend changes or upgrades to electrical systems to increase productivity and functionality.
Supervise Electrical Technicians
Electrical maintenance engineers are responsible for supervising electrical technicians, which includes hiring and training new technician team members.
Electrical maintenance engineers perform regular tests to new and existing electrical systems, equipment, and machinery, both to spot potential problems and to ensure that systems are operating at their highest possible levels of functionality.
Required Experience, Skills and Qualifications
Electrical maintenance engineers are professionals with a high degree of mechanical skill who can successfully manage others and also work independently to solve problems with electrical systems. Hiring companies seek out electrical maintenance engineers who have the following qualifications:
Leadership skills – electrical maintenance engineers have leadership skills that allow them to supervise themselves and others by managing their own time well, doling out tasks to staff members, and making tough hiring and firing decisions when necessary
Physical stamina – in a normal workday, electrical maintenance engineers must lift heavy equipment and work in uncomfortable positions and places, such as high areas and confined spaces, which requires the physical ability to carry out these tasks
Computer skills – electrical maintenance engineers have a basic grasp of computer skills in order to work with their own equipment and tools and to perform tests on electrical systems of all types
Communication skills – electrical maintenance engineers consult with other staff members on ways to meet project and equipment goals, alert supervisors to potential problems or needed upgrades with electrical systems, and supervise other staff members, all of which requires strong communication skills
Attention to detail – electrical maintenance engineers spot and isolate potential problems with systems, so they are highly detail-oriented and have keen observation skills
