Piping Design vs. Piping Engineering

by William G. Beazley, PhD, Executive Director, SPED


I am often asked about the difference between Piping Design and Piping Engineering <Design>. There is much confusion between the two, particularly since the major piping codes and standards partially address them and certain actions performed by them fall under government licensing for Professional Engineers. The distinction is important as most engineering; Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies employ piping designers on engineering projects who are not qualified under codes or licensing to perform piping engineering without supervision.

I define design as the creation of highly quality assured product definition data. A drawing is little more than a sketch without the extra step of assuring the product will perform to expectations and defined requirements. Piping Designers and Piping Engineers provide assurance from two different bodies of knowledge: Both perform design but in accordance with two sets of requirements.
