1. Walk me through a complex electrical engineering project you have worked on in the past? What was your role, and what challenges did you face?

2. How do you stay updated on the latest trends and advancements in the field of electrical engineering?

3. Tell me about a time when you had to troubleshoot and solve a particularly challenging technical problem in your previous role?

4. How do you approach collaborating with other team members, such as software engineers or project managers, on a cross-functional project?

5. Give me an example of a successful project where you had to balance technical requirements with budget constraints?

6. How do you ensure that your work complies with industry standards and regulations in the field of electrical engineering?

7. Tell me about a time when you had to lead a team of engineers on a project? What strategies did you use to ensure successful project completion?

8. How do you prioritize and manage multiple projects with competing deadlines in a fast-paced work environment?

10. How do you approach continuous learning and professional development in the field of electrical engineering?

Always thoroughly review the candidate's resume and any other relevant materials before the interview.
