      Electronics support many industries and making sure they work and are reliable is vital. Electronics are becoming smarter and more powerful all the time and the industry is forever evolving. Its not just for fun things like eVTOLs which are electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles, and jumpers that can charge your phone, but will be useful for medical applications such as implantable electronics as well as security. Electronics will also play an important part in the transition from oil and gas power to more environmentally clean power sources. Electronics have evolved rapidly and its an exciting industry to be involved with!
