Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Industrial Electronics Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Industrial Electronics Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Operation Monitoring. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Industrial Electronics Technology majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Programming, Technology Design, Management of Material Resources, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Mathematics, Persuasion, Complex Problem Solving, Science, Service Orientation, Time Management, Critical Thinking, Reading Comprehension, Learning Strategies, Coordination, Management of Financial Resources, Judgment and Decision Making, Monitoring, Instructing, Active Listening, Negotiation, Operations Analysis, Writing, Speaking, Active Learning, Social Perceptiveness, and Management of Personnel Resources.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Industrial Electronics Technology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Installation is very distinctive for majors, but the Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Repairing, Troubleshooting, Reading Comprehension, Equipment Maintenance, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Active Listening, Operation and Control, Monitoring, Judgment and Decision Making, Systems Analysis, Equipment Selection, Installation, Speaking, Writing, Coordination, Systems Evaluation, Time Management, Active Learning, Persuasion, Service Orientation, Social Perceptiveness, Mathematics, Learning Strategies, Science, Instructing, Technology Design, Management of Personnel Resources, Negotiation, Management of Material Resources, Operations Analysis, Programming, and Management of Financial Resources are the three most important skills for people in the field.
