01Physical Scientists And Related TechniciansWorkers in this minor group conduct pure and applied research and develop practical applications of scientific knowledge, or perform related auxiliary technical tasks, in the field of the physical sciences. They normally specialise in a particular branch of physical science, such as organic, inorganic, physical or analytical chemistry, mechanics, heat, light, sound, electricity and magnetism, electronics, nuclear physics, geophysics, geology, meteorology and astronomy, and they may specialise in developing practical applications in medical, industrial, military or other particular fields.
02Architects, Engineers And Related TechniciansWorkers in this minor group design buildings and supervise their construction; plan and co-ordinate development of urban areas; plan, design and supervise landscaping; study, design, advise on and supervise the construction of civil engineering structures; study, advise on and develop plant, equipment and processes in electrical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, mining and other engineering fields and carry out technical supervisory functions in connection with the manufacture, construction, installation, operation, maintenance and repair of such plant and equipment; develop and control processes for extraction of metals from their ores, study properties of metals, develop new alloys and advise on metallurgical problems; study, develop and advise on the promotion of efficient, safe and economic utilisation of personnel, materials and equipment; study, plan and advise on the routing and control of road traffic; make trigonometric surveys of the earth's surface and underground areas; prepare technical drawings and maps and perform other technical tasks, normally under supervision, contributory to the work described in the foregoing. Workers with architectural and engineering qualifications frequently are occupied mainly in administrative or managerial work (minor group 2-1), or as teachers (minor group 1-3), patent agents (unit group 1-99) or technical salesmen (unit group 4-31) and are classified accordingly.
