Strong and Varied Knowledge of Your Industry
Providing field service engineering means having a strong foundation of knowledge about many industry-specific engineering requirements as well as general standards and practices that apply across all industries. A skilled field service engineer must have a practical knowledge of the many different types of machinery and equipment they will encounter in their work.
A field service engineer is the person who is sent to repair equipment when it is damaged, defective, or no longer operational. This means they need to be able to know going in what they will need to do to assess and fix the issue in order to get operations back on track.
Competency and Skill
Field service engineers take this knowledge and combine it with the skills and experience necessary to put it to use in unique and demanding operational settings. Field service engineering is a hands-on career, and the engineer needs to be able to roll up their sleeves and get to work on a wide variety of equipment in an equally wide variety of scenarios. Exceptional practical skills and abilities, as well as a deep knowledge of industry-specific engineering, means getting the job done in a timely and reliable way.
Willingness to Travel and Adapt
Field service engineers are often required to travel extensively. This means that engineers need to be prepared for long and frequent trips for work and to act as an exemplary representative of their company when they are on the job. Depending on the kind of work, trips can be longer or shorter, and the locations can pose very different demands.
Engineers can quickly go from working in isolation, with the peace and quiet to focus on the job, to a busy environment where their ability to concentrate is tested to its limit. The key to field service engineering is the combination of knowledge with the ability and willingness to think fast and adapt to different working environments.
