These design engineers are tasked with developing drawings which coordinate with industry guidelines and state building laws, as well as analyzing mechanical systems to ensure they are functioning properly, researching design proposals, manuals, and other valuable information to understand the feasible costs of construction on projects, and modifying products to ensure they comply with engineering designs and performance specifications. They must also maintain and provide technical information and reports to their direct supervisors when necessary.
Most employers require applicants to have at least a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, and some may also prefer those who have two or more years of experience in a relevant field. Aspiring mechanical design engineers should also have strong verbal and written communication skills, knowledge of computer hardware and software, and some sort of background in material selection and application and mechanical design. The ability to perform tasks independently with minimal supervision is also highly beneficial. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
