The following industries employ electronic technicians: computer industry, consumer electronics industry, robotics industry, utility companies, home security, home automation, healthcare, broadcast, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, mining, office equipment, waste-treatment, and any other industries that use electrical/electronic systems.

The employment of electrical and electronics engineering technicians will likely grow in engineering services firms as companies seek to contract out these services as a way to lower costs.

Electrical and electronics engineering technicians also work closely with electrical and electronics engineers and computer hardware engineers in the computer systems design services industry. Demand for these technicians is expected to be sustained by the continuing integration of computer and electronics systems, especially automation systems. In addition, computer, cellular phone, and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies are being included in automobiles and various portable and household electronics systems.
