Engineer Your Career
Demand for engineers
Engineering remains a vibrant sector with strong demand in some traditional sectors and growing demand in newer, emerging ones.
What the institutions say
Professional Registration: Is it worth it?
In a word: definitely. Registering with ECUK as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) is a yardstick by which employers can immediately see that you have the sort of competencies they value.
Will postgraduate study help?
Industrial research is more important to the engineering profession than to any other. A postgraduate research qualification is good evidence that you have learned the skills associated with such research.
On the job training
Most engineering employers offer graduate training schemes today. These typically involve rotations between different parts of the business over a two or three year period.
