RF engineers provide focused electrical engineering services that specifically relate to the radio frequency environment. They work on or with devices that use radio wave signals, which generally involve telecommunications and the IT sector. Much of this work currently relates to cell phones and other mobile devices. These engineers perform development, design, modeling, testing, implementation, and troubleshooting services. They identify customer needs or market demands, and then help develop systems and solutions that address those needs.
RF engineers typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering or a related discipline. They should have hands-on experience with development, testing, and modeling and tools and programs used for those tasks. These roles require highly developed analytical skills, problem solving abilities, and experience using testing equipment.
