What Does a Career as a Controls Engineer Mean?

When you are a Controls Engineer, you work with clients to understand what their process and facilities need in terms of automation. Then, you work to fulfill those needs by creating software solutions for them. Part of your job is to manage programming, troubleshooting, and communication with teams and clients. You could also install operational systems and equipment and tackle more hands-on activities within the manufacturing process.
