Mechanical project engineers develop concepts into concrete project plans that are worked on by other engineers. They also communicate these plans to the accounting office, which allocates capital and operating funds throughout the project. As the plans are enacted, the mechanical project engineer monitors the team's progress and develops instruments for product testing. Their position may involve work directly on the factory floor. Additionally, the mechanical project engineer takes responsibility for compliance with local and national laws, permit requirements, and OSHA regulations. They must ensure the company is prepared to answer questions from regulators and help reduce risks to employees and future consumers.
