Automotive Engineers

Work Environment

Automotive engineers do the majority of their work inside an office. They often are assisted by clerical support staff or research and technical staff members located in offices nearby. Many times, automotive engineers are required to spend at least part of their time on a specific work site. They may find themselves at manufacturing sites or on an assembly line to work on special projects, or to oversee the production of a specific component. People interested in becoming automotive engineers should be flexible about work sites and adjust easily to different types of environments. Some travel is expected, especially to manufacturing plants or contractors located abroad, or to attend automobile conventions or trade shows.
