      There’s hundreds of different types of engineers from design engineers, to analysis engineers, to material engineers to mechanical engineers:D The main thing an engineer does though is finding ways to make technology better and invent new ways of doing things with technology:D I am a precision engineer so I make things with very small parts for space technologies:D
