Project engineering is typically the management of engineering and technical projects – this includes management of personnel, budget, and scheduling to deliver a successful project outcome that is fit for purpose. In addition to these factors, a significant consideration of the work of project engineers is the safety of the project. They will work to minimize the risks associated with engineering projects. The project engineer will act a coordinating figure, dealing with stakeholders across all areas of the project. They will interpret the needs, expectations, and limitations of each, and bring them together with the aim of successful project delivery.
What does a Project Engineer do?
The role of a Project Engineer can vary from project to project. Project Engineers can be the individual in charge of a project or they can be a co-lead or an assistant alongside a project manager, giving advice and supervision to the engineering aspects of the project. Whatever the specific set up, the project engineer will likely be the one in charge of the technical considerations and team within a project. As well as office-based time, a project engineer will likely spend a significant amount of time “on site” at the project.
