Job Description for Mechanical Engineering Technician

A mechanical engineering technician works with other engineers to develop (and/or improve existing) products and machinery. These technicians play an important role in the manufacturing process, as they can improve efficiency and worker safety by evolving existing processes. Additionally, a mechanical engineering technician can add functionality to products by creating parts and processes that make them more useful. They also help diagnose and remedy existing mechanical processes that appear prone to higher-than-acceptable failure rates.

Typically a mechanical engineering technician analyzes existing schematics, products, and/or machinery. They look for opportunities to make the item more efficient, such as through increasing the speed of the mechanical process works or reducing the energy input required. In a manufacturing setting, the technician typically speaks to workers who use a particular piece of machinery to develop ideas for how it could work better or allow the workers to use it more safely. In the case of developing new products, the engineering technician works closely with the designers and developers to ensure a good match between process and outcome.

The technician then develops drawings and creates prototypes for the mechanical processes he or she is working on and initiates testing. The technician must be mindful of the materials used, availability, and compatibility with other processes and workers that come into contact with it. Upon the completion of quality testing, the technician signs off for the final fabrication of whatever process has been created.

To work as a mechanical engineering technician, a person must typically possess at least an associate's degree in mechanical engineering, although many larger companies that work with intricate manufacturing processes will often prefer individuals who have a bachelor's degree. Technicians typically work in a manufacturing plant, office environment, and/or testing laboratory.
