Engineers work internationally to design most of what is around us. Having precise vocabulary is key when working with large quantities of expensive materials or when aiming for exact specifications. When it comes to documentation and standardization, there is a specific set of engineering abbreviations that has made communication in the field of engineering uniform.
Here is a very comprehensive list of abbreviations used in the field of engineering:
Most engineering companies have their own abbreviations that go beyond the established standards in the English-speaking abbreviation field. If you want to find more abbreviations used in engineering on an international scale, look into the German Standardization System (Known as DIN - Deutches Institut fur Normung) to find out more about how they use abbreviations in their engineering documents. More engineering abbreviations and other jargon and phrases used specifically in the field of engineering in the English-speaking world can be found in any standard engineering manuals.
