Automation Engineers

Work Environment

Employment settings for automation engineers range from quiet offices to noisy and bustling manufacturing plants. Some engineers are required to travel as part of their jobs. An engineer might be tasked with visiting his or her company’s manufacturing facilities to identify processes that can be automated or work on ongoing automation projects. Others might be required to visit the offices of potential or current clients. On the other hand, the Internet of Things, augmented reality, and, of course, the Internet allow many engineers to do at least some of their work remotely. They can provide advice to a technician in the field or consult with clients and coworkers from the comforts of their office or home.
