From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Project Engineer is, in some cases, the same as a Project Manager. Project Engineers are considered to be Project Managers, but with engineering qualifications. A similar role is undertaken by a Client's Engineer or Owner's Engineer, but by inference, these often act more in the interests of the commissioning company.

Government organizations might have a Senior Project Engineer at the top of the ladder followed by Project Engineer followed by Project Manager.

In some cases a Project Engineer is responsible for assisting the assigned project manager with regard to design and a project and with the execution of one or more simultaneous projects in accordance with a valid, executed contract, per company policies and procedures and work instructions for customized and standardized plants.

It is not permissible to call a project engineer a P.E., as this refers to a Professional Engineer.


A Project Engineer's responsibilities include schedule preparation and resource forecasting for specific engineering activities relating to the project. They are in charge of performance management of the architectural and engineering vendor. They assure the accuracy of financial forecasts, which tie-in to project schedules. They ensure projects are completed according to project plans. Project Engineers manage project team resources and training and have extensive project management experience and expertise. When project teams are structured so that multiple engineering specialty disciplines report to the Project Engineer, then two important responsibilities of the Project Engineer are inter-discipline coordination and overall quality control of the engineering work.
