De fleste jobs vil dog være at finde inden for forskning, forvaltning og rådgivning samt undervisning og formidling i den private eller den offentlige sektor.

Elektroteknologi-ingeniører får job inden for en lang række fagområder, lige fra ingeniørmæssig eller naturvidenskabelig grundforskning i samarbejdsprojekter mellem forskningsinstitutter, Godkendte Teknologiske Serviceinstitutter (GTS-institutter) og industrien, til forsknings- og udviklingsprojekter i industrien og som produktionsingeniører. Herudover er mange elektroteknologi-ingeniører beskæftiget som konsulenter ved GTS-institutter eller hos patentbureauer.

Hvis du brænder for formidling af elektroteknologi kan du fx undervise på seminarier samt ved forskellige former for voksenundervisning. Uddannelsen er ikke direkte møntet på jobs i gymnasiesektoren, men ønsker du at blive gymnasielærer, skal du gennem dine tilvalg sørge for at opnå den nødvendige undervisningskompetence.

Endelig er en del civilingeniører i elektroteknologi beskæftiget med formidling af viden inden for medie- og forlagsverdenen samt i bank- og forsikringsverdenen. Uddannelsen er nøglen til mange forskellige typer arbejde overalt i samfundet.
