Validation engineering is all about managing, inspecting, calibrating, testing and modifying the instrumentation, equipment, mechanics, and procedures used to manufacture various products. It is also about ensuring all systems are running correctly and efficiently to produce high-quality products.
Typically Validation Engineers are found to be working in industries such as aerospace, automotive, biotechnology, computer software, and pharmaceuticals.
Here is a quick overview of what it is like to be a Validation Engineer.

The conventional duties of a validation Engineer

Validation Engineers develop validation master plans, process flow diagrams, test cases, or standard operating procedures. Additionally, their roles also require them to create, populate or maintain databases for tracking validation activities, test results, or validated systems, and direct validation activities, such as protocol creation or testing and analyzing to determine whether systems or processes have met validation criteria or to identify the root causes of production problems.

In addition, they draw samples of raw materials or intermediate and finished products for validation testing. Although specific duties may vary, many of them identify deviations from established product or process standards and provide recommendations for resolving deviations.

Responsibilities of a Validation engineer would include but not limited to:

  • Maintain knowledge of product functionality
  • Study of product requirements to verify testability
  • Identification of suitable testing equipment
  • Supporting the Design team to define and implement new requirements/performances.

  • The majority of Validation Engineers typically enter the occupation with a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering related field. Typically the minimum Qualifications one needs to possess is a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent and have 1-year experience in any of the subfields such as Engineering (Test Automation and Validation), Programming (Shell scripting, Python, Lynx), Lab Equipment: (Protocol Analyzer, Oscilloscope, Logica Analyzer)

    Here are some common qualities observed in Validation Engineers and it might just be the perfect career for you if you identify with the below qualities;

  • People who like to solve problems mentally
  • People who want job security and good working conditions

  • The greatest perk of being a validation engineer is that it has a very high salary (top 25% highest paid careers)

    Semiconductor Validation, in particular, requires engineers from the field of electricals and electronics. Generally, the duty of a semiconductor validation engineer is to check if components such as transistors, IC chips are meeting specifications (typically of current and/or voltage) or not. Whether the functionality of the components is as per requirements. That of a semiconductor validation engineer is a very important job.

    The process could be briefly described as :

  • Validation engineers receive i/p from a design engineer
  • Usually, Physical semiconductor IC chip, like timer IC, microprocessor, microcontrollers, A to D converters, D to A converters,Phase lock loop, Power regulators, voltage Regulators are to be validated by validation engineers.
  • Next step would be to build circuitry to validate the complete functionality of the chip and go on to test the semiconductor.
  • They report errors or bugs in the functionality of the design or the chip.
  • Current and Voltage are two very important aspects of electronics. They have to meet the specifications mentioned. With the latest advancements, Verification tools are provided. A validation engineer must be well versed with using those tools. Building an integrated circuit chip is a costly process and hence a lot of precision is required.
