Frequently make presentations and draft technical instructions, so public speaking and writing are two skills worth mastering. These engineering technicians piece together and calibrate new machines, such as manufacturing robotic devices. They also diagnose issues, make necessary repairs, create new components and execute performance tests. If working with mechanical engineers to design and build mechanical equipment sounds more appealing, consider becoming a mechanical engineering technician. Under the supervision of engineers, they help develop ideas in addition to creating schematics, drawings and manufacturing instructions. After prototypes are built, they test the product, record findings and make design modifications if necessary.
