Do project engineers need to own a pickup truck?

If you're an electronics engineer or a software engineer, or an aerospace engineer, definitely not. If you're a civil engineer, probably not, if you're a construction engineer maybe, but most likely there will be somebody else to do the hauling. Incidentally, I'm not considering as engineers non-degree people who are basically maintenance people, but who may call themselves engineers.

NO. You aren't going to haul stuff for the company.

Depends on what type of "project" the engineer works on:
parking structure erection
mall store demolition
Hollywood movie production
Probably no.Source(s): I did geophysics exploration, Hollywood studio work, software and electronics projects, quite a few other jobs. Sometimes I drove a VW microbus, sometimes an SUV, sometimes a sedan.

No but many of us do. They make a great second vehicle for use around town.

No no no, a ‘Project’ engineer has no practical skills and will not require a pick-up. They could probably drive an early 2000’s Ford Focus...
Real Engineers will drive Mercedes cars with 2 less seats than they have children.
The pick up trucks are used by Technicians, who don’t have degree level qualifications and if self employed earn more than the top two put together.
