Those working in engineering and manufacturing jobs can face some of the most challenging projects in the modern world. They are responsible for building and producing the goods for the society of tomorrow, and are responsible for coming up with innovative solutions to technical problems.
Engineering roles typically cover a range of jobs that fall within the following categories: chemical, mechanical, and electrical and software. Within these, there are a whole range of jobs and specialisms that span pretty much every other industry you can think of.
You could be involved with designing aerospace systems, designing and building infrastructures, or working in pharmaceuticals or utilities. Every-day products you see, such as food or the deodorant you put on in the morning, are designed and manufactured. The skills that you develop through engineering and manufacturing allow you to work across many industries so you can follow your interests and passions.
Manufacturing is centred upon the production of goods at high volumes, usually in factories. However, the manufacturing process requires a team of people to make it successful, including product developers, researchers, and even scientists.
Most of these roles in engineering and manufacturing will need a degree, although there are numerous apprenticeship routes that allow part-time study alongside full time work.
To become a fully chartered engineer you must complete a four-year MEng degree, or a bachelors and relevant work experience, and then complete a period of initial development. Manufacturing has more flexible routes to working up the career ladder.
Most of these roles are going to need a degree, many of which include a work placement that is sandwiched between years two and three.
However, there is a selection of apprenticeships for these roles. They will all require you to learn the technical and mathematical side of engineering, but alongside working, which you will be paid for. They function as an alternative to university and are aimed at school leavers or people who want to change their career.
There is a high demand for jobs within these industries and the starting salaries can be quite high, particularly for graduates. The industry also has a significant shortage of women in the workforce and there are movements to try and close the gender gap, particularly in engineering.
