Engineering and Aerospace represent a huge range of careers, with one thing in common: solving problems using technical and practical skills. Combining elements of design, maths, science, maintenance and production, people working in engineering and aerospace play a hugely important role in how our world works – now, and in the future.
Aerospace Engineering Technician
A role with a great deal of responsibility, you’ll be helping to design, build, test and repair civil and military aircraft.
Civil Engineering Technician
As a technician you’ll be providing technical support to colleagues on construction projects. From building bridges, roads, railways and water networks to tunnels, ports and offshore platforms – the opportunities are many and varied.
Agricultural Engineering Technician
Helping to solve practical engineering problems in land-based industries, you could be inspecting and maintaining machinery or supporting the development of new systems. If you’re practical and have good problem-solving skills, this could be an ideal role for you.
Building Services Engineer
As a building services engineer you’ll be helping to design, install and service equipment in buildings such as shops and offices. You’ll need to have good problem solving skills and an organised approach to your work.
Rail Engineering Technician
As a rail engineering technician – or rolling stock engineer – you’ll be installing and maintaining mechanical and electrical systems on trains. If you’re good at interpreting technical drawings, like variety and work well in a team, rail engineering could be a career worth considering.
As a telecoms engineer you could be working on satellite, digital TV and fibre optic systems, installing broadband, mobile and landline phone networks for households and companies.
