Validation engineers play a critical role in the manufacturing process, working to test and validate production systems and technology. These engineers calibrate and otherwise ensure the proper function of machinery or equipment that help maintain quality during the manufacturing process. Often, this means checking quality systems to make sure that they work according to specifications set by the company and/or external regulatory bodies. Many different manufacturing fields employ validation engineers, such as technology, electronics, biotechnology, automotive, aerospace, and pharmaceuticals.
