Process engineers provide technical support to optimise process capability, efficiency, yield and quality in compliance with the organisation’s system requirements, such as Workplace Safety and Health (WSH), Environmental Management System (EMS), and Process Safety Management (PSM). Depending on organisational needs, they may also specialise in process control, process optimisation or process engineering projects. They typically require skills in Environmental and Sustainability Management, Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Materials and Processes, Industrial IoT, Robotics and Automation, Product Innovation and Quality Management, AI, Data and Analytics, and Critical Core Skills.

This diagram shows an example of a multi-step approach to reskill into a process engineer from adjacent roles like discipline engineers or laboratory chemists using stackable full qualification pathways. Targeted placement programmes like CCP can also facilitate this career transition from any job role.

The diagram also shows examples of job roles that process engineers can progress to in future with career mobility planning.
