What is a technology career?

Engineering Technicians vs Engineers

Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection, and maintenance. Their work is more narrowly focused and application-oriented than that of scientists and engineers.

Many engineering technicians assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control, inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. in manufacturing, they may assist in product design, development, or production.

Most engineering technicians specialize, learning skills and working in the same disciplines as engineers. Occupational titles, therefore, tend to reflect his similarity (Civil Tech, Environmental Tech, Electrical Tech, and Mechanical Tech). (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)

Engineers, on the other hand, apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)
