Design engineers: creating concepts, drafts and models

Design engineers have a broad range of diverse tasks. They apply their profound knowledge of production and materials not only to the development of plans but also to the creation of models. Design engineers who are flexible and creative definitely have an advantage when performing their job.

Which opportunities do design engineers have on the labour market?

Design engineers analyse departments’ or entire companies’ needs considering costs and material expenses. They derive concepts and models allowing the management board to forge new paths in planning and production. Due to the rapidly changing technology in our world of work, design engineers are still highly sought-after experts.

What are the tasks and responsibilities of design engineers?

Design engineers are responsible for the concept and design of new products, operating equipment or even entire plants. For this purpose, they exploit the available sources of information and create 3D models (convertible into 2D drafts) by using CAD systems. These models can also be created in graphical form, e.g. as photo-realistic representations. Furthermore, design engineers prepare technical specifications, parts lists and presentations and create virtual simulations.

  • Creation of 2D and 3D concepts, drafts and models
  • Construction of prototypes
  • Work organisation
  • Collection of production-related data

Which hard skills and soft skills should design engineers have?

To successfully and timely meet the requirements, design engineers must have a high degree of professionalism and expertise. Furthermore, they must have completed a basic training in the technical field and must possess good spatial thinking skills. Good work organisation skills, team spirit and reliability are required as well.

  • A qualification in the technical field and a completed further training to become a design engineer 
  • Knowledge of administration, HR, materials and production 
  • Good spatial thinking and organisation skills
  • Reliability and resilience

What is the average salary of design engineers?

The tasks and thus the average salary of design engineers strongly depend on the industry and the company size. Whether or not their work is project-related plays an important role as well.
