In fact, consulting engineers come from virtually every specialty. Normally, they work within a team, making sure that services are promptly delivered to the client. The actual roles may vary greatly, depending on the type of company in question. I.e., a consulting engineer may be required to fulfill technical roles and coordinate or even manage projects. More often than not, it is the combination of all these roles that is needed. Consulting Engineers frequently coordinate the activities of other team members.
