Electronics engineering technicians assist electronics engineers with research, design, manufacturing, operation and maintenance tasks. They may work under the direction of electronics engineers, technologists or associates in all stages of planning, design, maintenance and production.
Environmental engineers are concerned with assessing and managing the effects of human and other activity on the natural and built environment. They apply their engineering knowledge and skills to such things as environmental impact assessment, natural resources management and pollution control.
Marine engineers control the installation, operation and maintenance of machinery and equipment on ships and vessels. Marine engineers work in the engine departments of cargo ships, dredges, offshore supply and drill vessels, floating production storage and offtake facilities, oil tankers, passenger ships and tugs. They need to be familiar with various types of diesel engines, steam plant and gas turbines.
Production or plant engineers plan, direct and coordinate manufacturing activities in industrial plants, including the design, construction, modification, performance and maintenance of equipment and machinery.
Industrial engineering technologists study and try to improve the quality and quantity of goods produced, and the efficiency and economics of production.
Engineering managers plan, administer and review engineering and technical operations.
Manufacturers plan, organise and manage the operations of small establishments that manufacture goods.
Fire protection technicians commission, install, test and maintain fire protection systems and equipment in buildings and other facilities to provide life, property and environmental protection.
Food technologists develop and improve existing food products and set standards for producing, packaging and marketing food. They use chemistry, microbiology, engineering and other scientific methods to study the process of food deterioration. They may specialise in fields such as meat, dairy, seafood, cereal products, confectionery, snack foods, beverages and minimally processed fresh produce.
Garbage collectors collect household, commercial and industrial waste for disposal or recycling.
Gasfitters install, test, maintain and repair piping systems downstream of the billing meter as well as appliances and ancillary equipment associated with the use of fuel gases, including Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) systems.
Geological engineers identify and try to solve problems involving soil, rock and groundwater, and design structures in and below the ground, using the principles of earth science. Geological engineering includes a number of ground engineering specialities such as geotechnical engineering, land remediation, rock mechanics, groundwater hydrology and engineering geology.
