Electrical engineers conduct research, develop and design and tests electronics systems. Electrical instruments like electric motors, machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings, navigation systems, communication systems, and power generations.

Also into designing the power of automobiles and aircraft systems. Also supervises broadcast and communications and computer functioning.

What I mean here is that your work deals with electrical boards and gadgets.
Now depending on the industry you work with and the rate of production and use of the equipment, your work timing would be fixed.

Electrical Engineer
Like say if you are working in a hospital, then all the machinery etc would depend on the function of the electrical gadget and system, so you would have to be 24/7 ready to deal with any kind of mishap or circuit issues. Similarly in the production or manufacturing or border security duty.

But say an industry like the computers or IT firms, you may have to troubleshoot, but you may have a fixed hour of working, unless it is a BPO, where work is more important during the night shifts.

So your job mostly would have flexible timings, and since there would be a group of engineers in the industry, the work is well divided amongst all. But high alert and on the spot dealing with the issue is the major role.

Wish you all the very best. Choose an industry whereby you could work successfully.....
