Wind Energy Engineers

Work Environment

Wind energy engineers work full time, usually 40 or more hours per week. They spend some time working indoors in offices and in laboratories. They also travel frequently to inspect turbine installations, wind turbine manufacturing processes, or to assess sites for wind farms and wind energy systems. Overseas travel is often required because many of the biggest turbine manufacturers are located abroad. For outdoor inspections and industrial environments, engineers wear protective clothing and gear. The job can be stressful at times, particularly when working on projects with tight deadlines and with managing teams of engineering workers.
