An industrial design engineer, for example, will develop concepts for a design aesthetic and ergonomic aspects.  

Most of the time, a design engineer works with a team of engineers and designers to develop conceptual and detailed designs. This helps ensure that a product has the functionality needed to perform according to its purpose. 

Design engineering starts with design drafting and drawing, followed by prototyping and then fabrication. Reviews and iterations are often done throughout the process. 

There is a distinct difference between a design engineer and a planning engineer in design. The former relies primarily on analysis while the latter on synthesis.

The advantage of hiring professionals is that different aspects of the design process are taken care of, including writing technical reports and summarizing findings and investigating and undertaking analysis. They will also handle changes and corrections throughout the life of the product, if needed. 

The design process is information intensive and design engineers often spend more than 50% of their time engaged in actively searching for information and information behaviors. The job may also spill into client engagement. This is why cognitive ability, personal attributes, and project management skills would prove helpful on top of an engineer's core technical competence.
