In addition, a master field engineer must be able to work with other engineers in order to design modifications, changes, or additions to current machines and mechanisms so that maximum efficiency, safety, and durability can be achieved. Field engineers may also verify prototypes of products, develop test programs and procedures for the technology that they work on, and examine products for design flaws.
