The Mechanical Engineer is responsible for interpreting, organizing, and executing engineering assignments.
This involves exploration of mechanical engineering requirements, definition of scope, selection of problems for investigations, and development of concepts and approaches.
In addition, this role is responsible for acting independently on technical matters pertaining to mechanical engineering. This role guides design and may be a discipline lead on a project.

Familiarity with process system design and equipment including pumps, fans, heat exchangers, cooling towers, boilers, chillers, conveyors and air handlers is also important.

Internal and external training may be provided as necessary to increase proficiency and competency.
Supervision received is essentially administrative, with assignments given in terms of broad general objectives and limits. This role has a responsibility to mentor less experienced engineering and design staff and share knowledge.
