Aerospace engineers perform and supervise the design, development, manufacture and maintenance work of all types of flight vehicles. This may include military and civilian aeroplanes, helicopters, missiles, launch vehicles, spacecraft, satellites, and control and guidance systems.
Agricultural engineers study and advise on the use of engineering science and technology in agricultural production and management of natural resources. They solve problems relating to such things as sustainable agricultural production, the environmental impacts of intensive agriculture and the post-harvest handling of agricultural products.
Agricultural technical officers provide complex technical support and advise on aspects of agriculture such as research, production, servicing and marketing.
Sampler testers assist engineers, technical officers and other laboratory staff by collecting and preparing samples, carrying out experiments, making measurements with scientific equipment, recording results and presenting results for critical analysis. Sampler/Testers carry out basic sampling and testing, record and present results and clean, maintain and set up equipment for use in experiments. They play an important role in manufacturing quality control.
