A Mechanical engineer will be concerned with one of the highest regarded vocations in the country. Not afraid of technology, you will revel in it as it is the foundation for the building blocks of solutions to global issues.
Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject and encompasses all from manufacture of small car parts to spacecraft - basically anything that moves.
You will analyse a product's design, efficiency, reliability and safety.
Creative thinkers fill this industry so don't think it's all about intellect. A tuned in engineer forgets the past and has an eye to solving the problems of now whilst looking out for future technical problems. A long career can lead to teaching as an optional career path for those who are happy to pass on learning and ensure the industry's future.
Proven technical expertise from many years of training, a mechanical engineer will have the ability to use and adapt to customised computer systems, built to assist in the creation of design. Intelligent and driven, you will be comfortable in an office environment or in the file using exceptional interpersonal skills. Naturally, a demonstrated aptitude for machinery and its design and operation will be compulsory.
