This entity based on microchips is called embedded systems. Industrial production processes are also often electronically controlled.

An electronics fitter who has completed advanced studies in electronics or a field of expertise knows how to do structural design, assembly, programming, and testing work of electronic devices related to electronics production and the proto-manufacturing phase that is especially part of it. He knows how to properly handle the components and materials needed in electronic installations and uses the necessary work and measuring tools.

The competition is individual.

Skill requirements

More precious competence requirements for the Taitaja competition can be found in the following modules of the electronics assemblers:
