What does a Deputy Chief Engineer do?

Engineers are highly skilled specialists who use math and science to solve both simple and complex everyday problems. They make use of new discoveries by taking relevant information from prior scientific discoveries and finding where they apply to the more practical settings and uses. Engineers' valuable innovations strive to advance the way humans utilize products or perform tasks. Engineers are the professionals directly involved in the invention, design, and the maintenance of various machines, structures, or data systems.

Engineers work with various objects and items, from massive construction project work sites to lending their expertise to development of the human genome. Often, they are responsible for the innovation and developments of new products or services, or a new type of technology or process. Engineers use science, technology, or math to solve problems and design machinery, build skyscrapers, and oversee public works. They also address society's needs and problems, including preserving clean water, development of drug delivery systems that work inside cells, or cleaning up oil spills. Engineers need a bachelor’s degree in engineering from a school accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology and must pass the Fundamentals of Engineering and the Principles and Practice of Engineering exams
