Name: Joe Tubbritt

Courses completed: Higher Cert in Electronic Eng, B Eng in Electronic Eng and BSc in Electronic Eng  2010 to 2016

Current employer: Analog Devices

Current role: Test Development Engineer (Vehicle Electrification Group)

As a Test Development Engineer, a good knowledge of hardware and software is crucial. The hardware skills I learned throughout my time in WIT are applied every day, whether it is soldering components onto test boards, working out cut-off frequencies of filters, or even just basic Ohm’s law calculations.

Programming is a major part of my job, so the fundamental programming language concepts I was taught (functions, variables, loops etc) are very beneficial. Other aspects of the Level 6 and 7 courses are also important such as schematic design, and board layout. To be able to combine hardware and software, and use and understand both to test semiconductor devices, is a critical skill which I was taught in WIT.

For anyone with a particular interest in the “practical” or “hands-on” side of electronics, I think the Level 6 and Level 7 is the best way to start and you can still get a Honours Degree
