Host said: How did you get your start doing component engineer work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?
Do you need a particular educational background?
There are no institutions or universities to teach one something about component engineering. Skills should be gained with personal interest, research and lots n lots of love towards electronics. To get started just get familiar with electronic components, their function, behaviour, specifications. you need to do a research on each component on working methode, types, functions of each, description, specifications and so on. And you should go through all the component manufactures website and get familiar with products, datasheets, latest updated component technologies, ordering of components. Get familiar with the environmental restrictions like RoHS, REACH and so on. If you need more help on this topicc go my web below and request for help. I will be happy to help you there.
