Computer aided design (CAD) engineers are responsible for creating technical design drawings using specialized software. They are in charge of effectively conducting field surveys. They review and integrate requests into the computer-generated designs, and they must follow company policies and industry procedures when incorporating technical specifications into master files. The CAD engineer's expertise helps them decide if a project is feasible and helps to avoid future issues when recreating the design in real life. They develop design flows, back up files to prevent data loss, review tools, and select specific software for design functionality.
