Join Our Network of Published Engineers
Do you have electrical engineering expertise or experience that you want to share?
You don’t have to be a professor, a PhD student, or a senior design engineer. In fact, much of our content is produced by young professionals navigating the field and retirees who would like to offer guidance to them. Our priority is accessible education for all.
Our editors will help you to refine your writing skills and your technical information, and after the article is published, you get paid.
We work with engineers from around the globe from all disciplines represented in the EE field. Design engineers, professors, retired industry experts, and even engineering students all contribute to our vast portfolio of content.

Types of Content
Which type of content is right for you? Your insights can find a home in one or multiple categories on AAC.
Technical articles on 向日葵视频 are designed to help practicing engineers and engineering students solve problems they come across in the real world.
These articles address a particular theory, methodology, challenge, or concept in electrical engineering that will help your peers develop their understanding of this field.
As a writer, you can pitch topics you feel passionate about or work with our editorial team to ideate a topic that will fill a content gap. Some technical articles you might write include:
Introductions to topics ranging from high-level theory to advanced concepts in specific disciplines
Tutorials and guides on how to use relevant tools and programs
Analysis of specific circuits or design elements
Exploration of components and semiconductor-level considerations
We encourage you to write as though you are conversing with a peer or mentee, making for an easier (and, hopefully, more fun) writing experience.
AAC projects serve as a walkthrough for the creation of a hardware subsystem. Here, you can build a physical system that interests you and share the results with the rest of the EE community, providing valuable ideas and solutions to your peers.
A typical project article will include the following elements:
Stated purpose/application of the subsystem
Step-by-step guide through the project’s creation
Applicable code files
3+ images of the hardware being used
A video of the project accomplishing its goal application (e.g., video of a sensor data aggregation system processing/logging the collected data). This can be as short as 20 seconds!
The goal is for another engineer to learn how you approached your design (including how you tackled challenges you came across in the design process). This will give them the opportunity to either repeat your project or make a new version of it with different features.
As a freelance news writer, you’ll research and report on emerging tech stories to keep the AAC audience informed on the state of the industry.
News on AAC covers a broad range of topics, including:
Design trends and news
Developments in semiconductors, drones, manufacturing, energy, the IoT, wearables, etc.
Interviews with prominent engineers and electronics professionals
Reports on new components, technologies, and applications
Updates on engineering and tech conferences and events
Research and future tech
Meet Our Editorial Team
“Here at AAC, there are two priorities: First, have a good time. Second, produce top-quality content. We can help you with both.”
—Robert Keim, director of engineering and longtime contributor

Just don’t forget your Oxford commas—or else.”
—Kate Smith, editor-in-chief and amateur philosopher
"AAC readers drop by our site to pick up something practical or interesting—ideally both. We love working with writers who are eager to make sense of the basic pillars and tricky details of the EE world.”
—HANNAH DETAVIS, JUNIOR EDITOR
“As an AAC contributor, you have the unique opportunity to write about the technological trends, innovations, and topics that will inspire the developers defining them.”

Industry Article Partnerships
向日葵视频 is one of the largest electrical engineering communities in the world and is the foremost resource for EEs. We are always looking for articles catering to professional electrical engineers and welcome company contributions. Though we occasionally accept beginner’s articles, you may assume that your audience will be bright, experienced, and informed; as such, your writing will be highly scrutinized.
What We Publish
We are especially interested in Industry Articles taking a stand, exploring an industry-relevant trend, offering a controversial opinion with facts and links to back it up, providing a compelling and unique review, or giving an insider’s view on some facet of the EE industry.
Our community is more interested in informative articles than promotional content. Describing technical details, processes, and applications is much more useful and informative for our readers.
Our site is independent and we maintain that independence by rejecting proposals for marketing-focused pieces or press releases.
Industry Article Submission Guidelines
If you are interested in submitting a relevant and engaging article to our site, please adhere to the follow guidelines:
Industry Articles must be unique content unpublished anywhere else online.
Industry Articles must be 800+ words.
Anything you write should center around your field of expertise.
If you write about your company's specific products or services, do not use overtly promotional language.
Use an independent voice that adds to the overall tone of our site. Humor is welcomed. Slang is discouraged.
Include images, tables, charts, diagrams, etc. illustrating your topic. Any visual aids you supply cannot be copyrighted material from a third party.
Prior to publication, Industry Articles must adhere to the same quality checking process as all AAC content. This includes a review of the topic, editing, and optimization of titles and headers.
We ask you to monitor the AAC website and reply to comments made on your article. Your comments are your own, posted by you, and will not be reviewed or copy edited.
Company contributions are unpaid, but highly visible and an excellent way to introduce yourself to our audience. Interested? Pitch your article to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your pitch, please include your company affiliations, an abstract explaining your topic idea, and a bio (example bio).
Please note that not all articles submitted to us will be approved for publication.
Send us your résumé, topic ideas, and—if available—technical writing samples in this form.
