You will perform a variety of engineering work in designing, constructing, and testing aircraft, missiles, and spacecraft. You may conduct basic and applied researh to evaluate adaptability of materials and equipment to aircraft design and manufacturing. You may recommend improvements in testing equipment and techniques.
You will analyze, troubleshoot, and evaluate computer network problems. You will play an important role in the routine maintenance of your organization’s networks, such as performing file backups on the network. Maintenance can be performed daily, weekly, or monthly and is important to an organization’s disaster recovery efforts.
You will test and analyze geological samples, crude oil, or petroeum products to detect presence of petroleum, gas, or mineral deposits indicating potential for exploration and production, or to determine physical and chemical properties to ensure that products meet quality standards.
You will repair, test, adjust, or install electronic equipment, such as industrial controls, transmitters, and antennas.
You will make exact measurements and determine property boundaries. You will provide data relevant to the shape, contour, gravitation, location, elevation, or dimension of land or land features on or near the earth's surface for engineering, mapmaking, mining, land evaluation, construction, and other purposes.
You will determine the location and plan the extraction of coal, metallic ores, nonmetallic minerals, and building materials, such as stone and gravel. Your work will involve conducting preliminary surveys of deposits or undeveloped mines and planning their development; examining deposits or mines to determine whether they can be worked at a profit; making geological and topographical surveys; evolving methods of mining best suited to character, type, and size of deposits; and supervising mining operations.
You will apply the knowledge of engineering, biology, and biomechanical principles to the design, development, and evaluation of biological and health systems and products, such as artificial organs, prostheses, instrumentation, medical information systems, and health management and care delivery systems.
You will supervise and coordinate the activities of mechanics, installers, and repairers.
You will perform laboratory and field tests to monitor the environment and investigate sources of pollution, including those that affect health. Under the direction of an environmental scientist or specialist, you may collect samples of gases, soil, water, and other materials for testing and take corrective actions as assigned.
You will place and detonate explosives to demolish structures or to loosen, remove, or displace earth, rock, or other materials. You may perform specialized handling, storage, and accounting procedures.
You will set up, operate, or tend machines to coat or paint any of a wide variety of products including food, glassware, cloth, ceramics, metal, plastic, paper, or wood, with lacquer, silver, copper, rubber, varnish, glaze, enamel, oil, or rust-proofing materials.
You will operate one or several types of power construction equipment, such as motor graders, bulldozers, scrapers, compressors, pumps, derricks, shovels, tractors, or front-end loaders to excavate, move, and grade earth, erect structures, or pour concrete or other hard surface pavement. You may repair and maintain equipment in addition to other duties.
You will set up, operate, or tend forging machines to taper, shape, or form metal or plastic parts.
You will set up, operate, or tend machines, such as glass forming machines, plodder machines, and tuber machines, to shape and form products, such as glassware, food, rubber, soap, brick, tile, clay, wax, tobacco, or cosmetics.
You will set up and operate a variety of machine tools to produce precision parts and instruments. This field includes precision instrument makers who fabricate, modify, or repair mechanical instruments. You may also fabricate and modify parts to make or repair machine tools or maintain industrial machines, applying your knowledge of mechanics, shop mathematics, metal properties, layout, and machining procedures.
You will set up, operate, or tend milling or planing machines to mill, plane, shape, groove, or profile metal or plastic work pieces.
You will lay, repair, and maintain track for standard or narrow-gauge railroad equipment used in regular railroad service or in plant yards, quarries, sand and gravel pits, and mines. This includes ballast cleaning machine operators and road bed tamping machine operators.
You will opertate television, video, or motion picture cameras to photograph images or scenes for various purposes, such as TV broadcasts, advertising, video production, or motion pictures.
