Types of Engineering Jobs

The professionals at our full-service recruiting firm have more than 30 years of combined experience filling engineering positions. No matter what specialty you’re looking for, we can help you find the right fit. Here are some of the engineering jobs we have experience filling:

Civil Engineers

These engineers are typically responsible for creating, improving, and protecting our immediate environment. Responsibilities usually include overseeing construction and building projects and maintaining roadways, bridges, tunnels, and other avenues for transportation. Civil engineers must be able to develop detailed designs, conduct feasibility assessments and site inspections, and possess excellent problem-solving skills. Most positions require an individual to hold at least a bachelor’s degree from a university that’s been accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Mechanical Engineers

Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, development, and testing of various mechanical and thermal sensors and devices. They are responsible for overseeing the design and development of many consumer products ranging from medical equipment to computer chips. Within the mechanical engineering field, individuals can further specialize in auto research, HVAC equipment, or robotics — to name a few. Individuals typically require a bachelor’s degree and valid license to be considered.

Software Engineers

One of the fastest-growing engineering segments, software engineers develop computer instructions through algorithms. They typically help improve system quality, maintain existing codebases, and implement technical designs. Software engineers also investigate the use of new technologies to maximize efficiencies and make recommendations for design improvement.

Electrical Engineers

Electrical engineers deal in the design, development, and testing of electrical devices and equipment. Such equipment may include communications devices, power generators, or automotive or aircraft electrical components. They also lead the charge on manufacturing electrical devices, systems, and equipment. Electrical engineers must also ensure that all devices and systems are in compliance with installation, manufacturing, construction, maintenance, documentation, support, and testing best practices. Individuals must be licensed and hold at least a bachelor’s degree to be considered for an electrical engineering position.

Environmental Engineers

Similar to civil engineers, environmental engineers work to improve and protect our environment. However, their focus is more on the world at large versus the manmade environments inhabited by our fellow humans. Environmental engineers may design projects for environmental protection, analyze scientific data, prepare and update environmental investigation reports, and provide guidance for corporations and governmental bodies on how to clean up contaminated areas. They conduct hazardous-waste management studies and design systems for municipal and industrial water supplies as well. Candidates must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution to be considered.
