Automation Engineers are in charge of creating an effective production workflow in their organization. They
implement complex electrical and mechanical installation support to ensure efficient equipment output and strict
compliance with safety regulations. In addition, they handle daily technical support requests for improving special
machinery functioning. As they are also responsible of planning and executing company initiatives, they should know
the assembly process for different industry machinery. Most automation engineers handle workers' training in the use
of manufacturing equipment. They must have current and advanced knowledge of different programming language

position where they will be supervising staff. In mining they can expect to work closely with other engineers such as
mining engineers and environmental engineers
