Most PCB designers work in air-conditioned offices or laboratories and have access to the latest computer-aided design (CAD) software. They typically work a regular 40-hour week, although overtime may be required to meet deadlines.
PCB designers may work on teams with other designers, engineers, and technicians, or they may work independently. They may also interact with clients to discuss the design of the PCB and make revisions based on feedback. PCB designers must be able to work well under pressure and meet deadlines while ensuring that the quality of their work is high.
