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
