Maintenance engineers are responsible for the continuous running of equipment and machinery. They use computerised systems to oversee routine maintenance and organise repairs.
Day-to-day responsibilities vary from designing maintenance strategies, to carrying out routine scheduled maintenance and diagnosing breakdown problems.
To become a maintenance engineer, you'll need to study a BTEC in engineering. A degree is not essential but many people have a degree in engineering. An alternative route would be to train through an engineering apprenticeship.
