The key qualities of these engineers are perceptiveness, patience, and self-confidence.
Most students interested in this type of engineering will pursue the master's and doctor's degrees in order to develop the intellectual abilities and necessary research skills.
This engineer attempts to produce a functional device, structure, or process.
Building and testing scale or pilot models is the primary means by which this engineer evaluates new ideas.
This engineer converts the development engineer's concept or model into a full scale device, process, or structure.
They evaluate many design options, keeping in mind the cost of manufacture, ease of production, availability of materials, and performance requirements.
This engineer is responsible for designing and implementing tests that verify the integrity and reliability of a product before it is introduced to the public.
They work closely with development engineers to evaluate prototypes by simulating the conditions in which the product will operate.
Challenges include having reliable conditions and data which includes fitting devices with data collection instrumentation.
Once research, development, design and test have been completed, they are responsible for gearing up for mass production.
They will order raw materials, set up the assembly lines, and handle shipping the finished product.
In the building industry, is the same as the production engineer in manufacturing.
This engineer estimates material, labor, and overhead costs for a building.
If the bid is successful, this engineer may either coordinate all of the project, or on big projects, only individual segments such as structure, mechanical, plumbing or electrical.
This engineer is responsible for supplying all the facilities for the plant such as offices, labs or production floor.
Once the plant is operational, the plant engineer is responsible for maintenance and modifications as requirements and growth demand.
These engineers are responsible for finding and developing a market for a product.
They are the liaison between the company and consumer, a very important part of influencing a company's reputation.
The principle function is to use facilities to produce an economically feasible product.
They often make decisions affecting thousands of people and millions of dollars over the years.
In the past, typically business degrees in management, but with the increase in technology and complexity of manufacture, more and more engineers are filling these positions.
Someone interested in self-employment
These engineers operate alone or in partnerships to provide specialized help to clients who request it.
These engineers must possess a professional engineer's license before beginning practice in some fields.
Are interested in helping others become engineers and must be able to communicate abstract principles and experiences in a manner students can understand and appreciate
Emphasis in classrooms today are empowering the students to take charge of their own education.
