Helping you find a career as a Mechanical engineer

The role of a mechanical engineer is to create solutions and solve mechanical issues; mechanical engineers produce specifications for the design, development and manufacture of mechanical components or systems. Mechanical engineers can also be involved in the management of people, projects and resources.


What does a Mechanical engineer do?
The general day-to-day work of a mechanical engineer varies from researching and developing, to improving production processes. Duties may include:

  • Monitoring and commissioning plant and systems

  • Planning and designing new production processes

  • Recommending modifications following prototype test results

  • Developing, testing and evaluating theoretical designs

  • Liaising with suppliers

  • Undertaking relevant research

  • Writing reports and documentation

  • Providing technical advice

  • Analysing and interpreting data

  • Making sure a product can be made reliably and will perform consistently

  • Reporting on issues such as cost, safety and time

  • Meeting with clients to agree budgets and project specifications

  • Maintaining and modifying equipment to ensure that it is safe, reliable and efficient

  • Using computer-aided design/modelling software

  • Discussing and solving complex problems with other departments, suppliers and clients

  • Producing details of specifications and outline designs

  • Using research, analytical, conceptual and planning skills

  • Implementing cost-effective equipment modifications to help improve safety and reliability

What hours does a Mechanical engineer typically do?
Working hours typically are Monday – Friday with regular extra hours, but not usually weekends. Shift work is also quite rare in this industry.
What environment is a Mechanical engineer based in?
The work is mainly office-based with regular visits to plants, factories, workshops or building sites.
How much does a Mechanical engineer travel?
As a mechanical engineer, travel within a working day is frequent. Occasionally you may be required to work away from home overnight or even travel abroad, depending on the employer and nature of the business.
How much does a Mechanical engineer get paid?
Starting salaries for a mechanical engineer, and for those who are on a graduate scheme, is between £20,000 and £28,000 per annum. With a little experience, you can expect this to increase to between £25,000 and £35,000 per annum.

Mid-level engineers' salaries are around £35,000 to £50,000 per annum.

Senior level mechanical engineers, who will be in managerial positions, salaries can range from £45,000 to £60,000+ per annum.
Perks & benefits
Self-employment and freelance work are possible for qualified engineers with a good track record and experience.
What qualifications does a Mechanical engineer need?
Mechanical engineers will be expected to have a degree. Many employers will offer degree apprenticeship programmes designed to secure a qualification while you work in a supporting role.

It is beneficial if a bachelor’s or master’s degree is accredited by a relevant professional body, such as the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), as it can help to achieve chartered status at a later date.
