5 Common Career Paths For a Research Engineer

Process Engineer

A Process Engineer is responsible for coming up with innovative ways to process particular raw materials into different kinds of products. They can also modify various existing machines or maintain their quality by monitoring its functions and conducting tests and examinations. A Process Engineer must do numerous analyses and research to gather data that would help determine possible improvements or decisions to uphold. Furthermore, A Process Engineer also has the task of procuring and installing new equipment, collecting and interpreting data, assessing risks, and ensuring that tasks are done safely.

Project Engineer

A Project Engineer develops the plan that the entire team or company will undertake. The project engineer develops the plans, strategies, and goals of a project and then gives it to the management for approval and allocation. The Project Engineer will also recommend material, equipment, and the type of personnel needed. This position is integral in the smooth flow of any project, so hiring someone to hold this position will decide the success of a project.

Software Engineer

A software engineer is a computer science professional who is responsible for the development of information systems, designing and building computer systems software and applications software. They often prefer to call themselves as a software developer or computer programmer. They have substantial knowledge of programming languages, software development, and computer operating systems, and other technologies. They use these to turn a plan into a final output. They can create a design, test, and develop software based on the needs of their clients.

Research Associate

A research associate is responsible for assisting the research team, organizing and interpreting findings, and verifying information before presenting the study to the board. Research associates duties also include gathering and comparing data from multiple sources, analyzing the current industry trends, creating draft outlines for reports, collecting individual contacts for interview purposes, and helping with the development of research procedures. A research associate must have excellent time-management skills and ability to multi-task, especially on meeting strict deadlines and conducting studies.

Engineer

Engineers are highly trained professionals who determine the feasibility of various projects, usually related to the construction industry. They are considered experts in mathematics and science, two disciplines that they need to use in designing and coming up with plans for projects. They should also be well-versed in different construction or industrial materials, and they ensure that appropriate materials are used for the project. They also ensure that the projects meet the requirements of the groups that hired them. They create spaces that would both address the needs of the end-users and the industry standards. They also ensure that the projects they make would stand the test of time.

Illustrated Career Paths For a Research Engineer

Research Engineer Jobs FAQs

Are research engineers scientists?

No, research engineers are not considered scientists. A research engineer is essentially an engineer who focuses more on the research end of things. Unlike a scientist, a research engineer does not need a Ph.D. or even a master's degree.

Research engineers are engineers who are also involved in research projects but focus more on implementations and writing code. There is still quite a bit of research (writing papers, etc.), but the focus is mainly on implementations of experiments, etc.

Almost all research engineers have a bachelor's degree in engineering and have spent several years working within their field before focusing more on the research end of things.

A scientist, on the other hand, is someone who is extensively trained in the research method and typically has a doctorate degree. The primary focus of a scientist is to conduct research, whereas a research engineer is more focused on the implementation of the tools or design rather than focusing on any theoretical concepts.

Learn more about this question

Do you need a Ph.D. to be a research engineer?

No, you do not need a Ph.D. to be a research engineer. In fact, over 60% of research engineers just have a bachelor's degree. There are advantages, however, and having a Ph.D. in engineering can definitely open a lot of different doors and increase your earning potential.

Graduates of Ph.D. in engineering programs can work as professors at research universities, dedicate their expertise to industrial or government research labs, or create a business around their own innovation.

However, earning a Ph.D. in engineer generally takes six to eight years of graduate study and provides graduates with more options than just a standard bachelor's in engineering degree.

Needless to say, earning a Ph.D. in engineering can be very time consuming and expensive. Another path towards becoming a research engineer is to earn your bachelor's degree and then gain work experience.

During this time, while you're building your research experience, you can also earn a master's degree or certification to help improve your chances of landing a research engineering position.
