A Career in Engineering
Engineering provides an exciting, challenging, rewarding and well paid career with prospects that can take you literally around the world.
Engineering has the highest rate of employment of any career, with a significant and growing national and local shortage. The direct impact of this trend is that the UK Industry is unable to find the employees that it needs to continue to produce world class products, systems, services and facilities; all of which are at the foundation of modern economy and society.
The following are excellent websites that provide an insight in to what it is to be a professional engineer:
The Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET)
Sharing and advancing knowledge, the IET and its members seek to enhance people's lives around the world.
