Engineering is everywhere…

Almost everything you eat, wear, use and like to do involves engineering.

From everyday things like your mobile, computer and clothes to medicine, space, national security and renewable energy

… to tackling climate change, providing clean drinking water or ensuring sustainable food supplies.

Design develop produce

Design, develop, produce…

Engineering’s about…

Finding out what people need, developing an idea and seeing how it can be made at a good price

Developing the ‘product’ on time and running tests to make sure it’s safe and reliable

Producing something that makes our lives better… whether that’s a new games console, high-tech sports equipment or quicker, greener and safer travel

What s in it for you

What’s in it for you?

Loads of different types of roles – such as:

Design, development, research, buying (engineering solutions) and management of engineering (projects and people)

Opportunities to travel, work in different environments and meet interesting people

Plus the money isn’t bad either…

For those who go to university, engineering and technology graduate starting salaries are approximately a fifth higher than the average graduate starting salary.

Engineering technicians also earn, on average, more than other STEM* technicians – in fact they top the league table of STEM technician salaries. *Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
