Analyses and modifies new and existing engineering technologies and applies them in the testing and implementation of engineering projects. “Engineering Technologists” is sort of catch-all term for all those engineering professionals not grouped in the conventional categories. As alternative engineering methods begin to proliferate, this group is growing. Engineering Technologists can include aeronautical, agricultural, biomedical, and environmental engineers, as well as naval architects.
As the term “Engineering Technologists” is a bit all-purpose, it is difficult to classify one particular workplace environment or condition. Engineering Technologists can work either in a traditional office setting, or in their particular field (naval settings, farmland, etc.).
