Qualities sought after in a Design Engineer Role #

What does a design engineer do? These are the most common abilities and qualities sought after by recruiters. They cover 3 main areas. A design engineer must be able to integrate, communicate and perform key tasks.

In the area of integration, companies are seeking engineers who can integrate computer-aided engineering results and feedback effectively.

As with most roles, communication is important and companies want their design engineers to be able to communicate.

Key areas of communication are:

  • ability to articulate design
  • championing tasks
  • articulating technical discussion
  • conveying complex concepts and
  • mentoring others

Finally, what are the key tasks that design engineers are expected to do? They are:

  • Multi-tasking and managing competing priorities
  • Effective problem solving
  • Application of mathematics and engineering to problems
  • Conceptualising mechanical components
  • Conducting experiments
  • Customising Design Rule Checking
  • Debugging issues and troubleshooting failures
  • Defining problems
  • Driving design thinking
  • Driving decision
  • Driving root cause analysis
  • Identifying Optimisation opportunities
