    Mechanical Engineer (Plumbing Designer)

    There are many types of consulting engineers who assist architects in the design, planning, and inspection of a building being constructed or renovated. As a minimum, these consulting engineers typically include structural, civil, electrical, and mechanical.

    A plumbing engineer is a sub-category of the consulting mechanical engineering discipline. Plumbing engineers design and evaluate plumbing and piping systems by apply engineering principles, component and system knowledge to appropriately design and guide plumbing system installations and renovations.

    In the construction industry, consulting engineering firms are most often hired by architects, building owners, contractors, and sometimes other consulting engineering firms.

    Don't be confused... Plumbing engineers are not plumbers.
