fieldwork (one word, not two)


Explanation:
Si, "fieldwork" es el termino correcto. Se usa mucho en los diferentes campos de ingenieria (industrial, ambiental etc.)

Te cito la siguiente referencia, proveniente del Diccionario de Ciencia e Ingenieria Ambiental de Wiley:

campo, trabajo (m) de c., fieldwork

Por favor toma nota de que, de acuerdo a la previamente citada referencia, la traduccion correcta es "fieldwork" , o sea (palabra compuesta) y no dos palabras (o sea field work es incorrecto)
