Project engineering is typically the management of engineering and technical projects – this includes management of personnel, budget and scheduling to deliver a successful project outcome that is fit for purpose. In addition to these factors, a significant consideration of the work of project engineers is the safety of the project. They will work to minimise the risks associated with engineering projects.
The project engineer will act a coordinating figure, dealing with stakeholders across all areas of the project. They will interpret the needs, expectations and limitations of each, and bring them together with the aim of successful project delivery.
