Engineering refers to the application of scientific, mathematical and technical knowledge in the design and implementation of materials, mechanical devices, structures, systems or processes to make an idea or an invention a reality. Therefore, engineering firms basically sell the knowledge of their employees.
There are many different types of engineering services, with the most common types being product and industrial process design engineering, construction engineering, product design engineering, systems engineering, maintenance engineering and operations engineering. Engineering companies are often involved in projects that require skills in analysis, design, project management and operations. Most engineering firms specialise in particular types of engineering services. Engineering work is usually project-based; such as designing and constructing a bridge or formulating an environmental plan for a protected area.
Due to the complexity of many projects, engineering firms often hire subcontractors and consultants to perform specialised work for particular projects so as to obtain the necessary expert knowledge, and very often access to the required materials in order to complete the projects.
