Job Description for Lead Instrument Engineer
A lead instrument engineer is a person who is at the head of a team who uses controls and gauges to handle heavy machinery. The engineer then measures and adjusts these controls and gauges based upon working conditions. Instrumentation engineering teams are most frequently found in industries like energy extraction or electrical or aerospace engineering. The team utilizes its remote controls, readouts, and sampling when it is impossible or unfeasible for an engineer to be physically present with the actual equipment.Read More...
As the lead engineer on such a team, this employee will normally be responsible for developing equipment control protocols. These may include determining critical stop procedures, as well as developing methods for logging and reporting measurable data and results. In an energy-related field, for instance, the lead instrument engineer may be the person determining possible likely areas for exploratory mining or drilling based upon received environmental data from remote measuring equipment in the field. The lead instrument engineer also will likely be the person giving input about hiring decisions and budgetary outlays for his or her team. He or she will also work with the team to provide written reports for other departments within an organization so that gathered remote data can be best used by other teams. Finally, the lead instrument engineer helps establish calibration levels for all instrumentation and controls that the team works with. The engineer then implements systems for regular testing and inspection to ensure accuracy of operation and measurements.
Lead instrument engineers will typically earn a degree in an engineering field related to instrumentation and controls. As a team lead, this person will normally be required to have extensive practical experience as an instrumentation and controls engineer within the field of the company or organization he or she is applying to. Most lead instrument engineers work in a computer and machinery lab or office type environment. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
