Job Description for Project Engineer

Project engineers use their technical and engineering knowledge to manage a project from conception to completion. They estimate timelines, schedules, risks, and costs related to the technical aspects of the projects. Some of their tasks are similar to management-level duties, such as supervising and training project staff. This role requires frequent visits to client sites to review projects and may involve exposure to extreme temperatures and confined spaces. The work project engineers do is mostly mental, but some physical work may occasionally be required.

Project engineers need a minimum of a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline. Some positions will consider candidates without a degree if they have enough relevant work experience, but degrees are strongly preferred. Entry-level positions prefer candidates with an engineer In training (EIT) certificate, with higher-level positions requiring or preferring candidates with professional engineer (PE) licensing and a few years of engineering experience. Knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite is generally required, and a experience with scheduling software is preferred.

Safety is key in engineering, both for employees and the general public. Project engineers must be aware of their surroundings and mindful of both company policies and governmental safety regulations. Communication skills, both verbal and written, are also important because project engineers need to understand the clients' needs and make sure the project team finishes the project completely and on schedule. Basic public speaking skills are useful when communicating with people on all sides of the project. Prime candidates for these positions are also well organized with strong time management skills to ensure all project requirements are completed on time.
