Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Electromechanical Engineering field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Electromechanical Engineering majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Electromechanical Engineering majors need more than the average amount of Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Mathematics, Quality Control Analysis, Technology Design, Troubleshooting, Management of Personnel Resources, Negotiation, Coordination, Time Management, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Instructing, Persuasion, Programming, Monitoring, Active Learning, Operation Monitoring, Writing, Science, Systems Analysis, Reading Comprehension, Social Perceptiveness, Service Orientation, Critical Thinking, Learning Strategies, Speaking, Active Listening, Systems Evaluation, Operations Analysis, Operation and Control, Equipment Maintenance, Equipment Selection, Installation, and Repairing.

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 Electromechanical Engineering 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 Management of Financial Resources is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Complex Problem Solving, Mathematics, Critical Thinking, Judgment and Decision Making, Writing, Active Listening, Speaking, Time Management, Coordination, Active Learning, Monitoring, Social Perceptiveness, Management of Personnel Resources, Instructing, Negotiation, Persuasion, Systems Analysis, Service Orientation, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Science, Operation Monitoring, Operations Analysis, Troubleshooting, Technology Design, Programming, Operation and Control, Equipment Maintenance, Equipment Selection, Installation, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
