our role is to develop solutions for our clients and improve on existing systems.
Sometimes you have to design from absolutely nothing and sometimes we just put together off-the-shelf items to solve a problem. The design engineers is usually involved throughout development: the first step in solving any design problem is determining what the problem really is.
Necessary skills- creativity, drawing, good organising, some team management, and more. I an a technologist so i even manufacture all the stuff i design unless it can't be done in house, the engineers usuall just produce a drawing and hand it to an artisan then they take part when changes should be made.
There's more to it, what you actually do will depend on the industry and company you're in.
