    involved/engaged in the field - which is better

    Hello everybody!

    For many years, he has been involved/engaged in the field of producing pipes, constructing ships, etc.

    The situation is taking place now, too. Do you think I used "involved/engaged in the field" properly. Maybe "associated with the field" should be used instead.

    Thank you.

    Consider the simpler

    'For many years he has been involved in producing pipes, constructing ships etc.'
