Control Engineers develop the control strategies and details and manage (or do) the implementation.
Often the two roles are combined, that is the Process Engineer also does much of the Control engineering. For a small project that can work.

Mechanical engineers often have knowledge of the equipment that is necessary to be able to automate it.
