  • IT skills

  • Creative ability and enthusiasm

  • Ability to work under pressure

  • Organisational skills, such as time and resource planning
What hours does a Mechanical engineer typically do?
You will typically work 37-40 hours a week, although may have to work overtime sometimes, particularly towards the end of a project. Self-employment and freelance work will be available for more experienced engineers.
What environment is a Mechanical engineer based in?
Work is mainly office-based or in plants, factories, workshops or building sites.
