Electrical engineers in the petrochemical industry are assigned to operating or manufacturing units where you review electrical systems and motors to improve efficiencies and reduce costs, and work with the team to develop budgets. You identify opportunities for applying power and control engineering capabilities to add long-term economic value. You provide effective engineered solutions through software development and maintenance, assist in managing the technical support needs of the business and determine engineering requirements for power and control systems and related applications. Strong math and science skills required.
Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Prior related summer intern or co-op experience such as commissioning of instrument/electrical control systems, wiring/schematic designs, control/production relaying, etc. is a plus. Equivalent years of military service may be acceptable, in lieu of experience.
