I have received an interesting question in the Facebook page asking about the differences between the project engineer and the planning engineer. After I prepared the reply, I found it could be useful to share with everyone.
Project Engineer: An engineer who is responsible for supervising the construction works. s/he could be civil engineer, architect engineer, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer etc. This position requires practical experience in the relevant field.
Planning Engineer: An engineer who is responsible for the project planning, scheduling, reporting, and controlling. Although, the scope of planning engineer works is fixed, but s/he could be civil engineer, architect engineer, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer etc. This position requires project management and planning skills in addition to some practical skills.
