Did you know that every day you benefit from the work of engineers without even realizing it? From the food you eat to the fuel you put in your car, engineers are the innovators who shape the world we live in. 

Engineers are solution seekers, possessing remarkable skills and knowledge that allow them to create, design, and solve complex problems. They are at the forefront of developing sustainable solutions that mitigate the impact on our planet. Their ability to think outside the box and embrace innovation results in groundbreaking advancements that shape our world and the future we envision. Through their expertise, creativity, and determination, they drive innovation in countless industries. 

Middough engineers work across nine different industries to improve upon current systems / processes that can lead to a better tomorrow. Let’s take a moment to celebrate some of the most remarkable things our engineers do to make a difference and propel us forward across the industries we serve: 


Engineers help develop solutions for the processing of food ingredients and biofuels – such as corn, grains, soybeans and oilseeds, into sweeteners, enzymes, amino acids, modified starches and many other value-added products.


Engineers make chemical processes more efficient and safer by finding ways to optimize them. They also work on developing environmentally friendly alternatives by minimizing waste, reducing energy consumption, and using renewable resources, contributing to a more sustainable chemical industry.

Food & Consumer Products

Engineers design innovative process solutions to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and protect the quality of food and consumer products. They also find ways to make production lines more automated, improving productivity, precision, and overall product quality.


Engineers specify automation and robotics to make manufacturing processes faster and safer. They also apply lean principles to eliminate waste, optimize workflows, and streamline operations, leading to increased efficiency and reduced costs.


From conceptual design through start-up, engineers develop innovative processes to optimize iron and steel production facilities. Quality, safety, and sustainability are paramount in developing engineering design solutions to the metals industry today.

Oil & Gas

Engineers design and build oil and gas processing facilities for stabilization, fractionation, and cryogenic gas processing. Oil and gas terminals and tankage, product loading/unloading solutions and transfer facilities are just some of the areas in which engineers use their technical and subject matter expertise to help this industry safely provide oil and gas to their customers.


Engineers design and optimize facilities and processes for making life-saving drugs, ensuring safety, quality, and efficiency throughout the supply chain.


Engineers implement technology and processes to create more energy-efficient and environmentally responsible power solutions that lessen our carbon footprint and lead to a more sustainable tomorrow.


Engineers continuously optimize refining processes to make them more efficient and environmentally friendly. They also develop technologies to monitor, control and reduce emissions from refineries.

Engineers at Middough and all over the world hold the power to revolutionize industries, improve lives, and shape our collective future. They help improve our quality of life across industries by paving the way for a brighter and more sustainable future. As we look ahead to a promising future and recognize the instrumental role engineers play in shaping our world, let’s not forget the importance of nurturing the next generation.

The Next Generation of Engineers

Inspiring and nurturing the next generation of engineers is crucial for a sustainable future. By mentoring and providing educational opportunities, engineers empower young minds to explore their passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through mentorship programs, internships, and collaborations with educational institutions, we can ignite their passion, nurture their talent, and guide them towards successful engineering careers tackling the challenges of tomorrow.
