Materials and Testing Engineer

Materials and testing engineers coordinate and direct the research, development and testing of materials such as asphalt, concrete, steel, cement, timber and plastics, taking into account factors such as stresses and strains, estimated load, water pressures, wind resistance and temperature fluctuations.  They advise contractors and others on materials most suited to meet individual construction requirements.

Materials engineers may be directly employed by a large construction company or serve as consultants to a range of companies.
