They must always stay up-to-date with new developments in their field in order to create the most effective piping designs, and they may also be in charge of carrying out feasibility testing and estimates.
Senior piping designers are often given budgets, and must carry out projects within these constraints and ensure that designs adhere to environmental regulations. Although much of the work in this position is done on the computer, some on-field exploration may be necessary for duties such as technical research. In-depth knowledge of pipe workings, such as the various types of pipes, their fittings, valves, support mechanisms, and insulation, is very important in this position, and knowledge of the equipment used to install piping is essential to determine feasibility. A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in engineering is generally required, and some employers may require a master’s degree.
