“If you are technically minded, good at maths and science, and like solving problems, a professional career in engineering could be a great move for you.”

Mechanical Engineer

Mechanical engineers develop and design components and machinery used in many industries like manufacturing, construction, water, power, health and transport. They also manage teams of technicians and craftspeople who carry out installation and maintenance work.

Day-to-day duties include carrying out surveys of mechanical equipment, researching and assessing new products, presenting design plans and data to managers and supporting team members across a range of projects.

To work as a mechanical engineer you will usually need a foundation degree, HNC/HND or degree in an engineering subject.
