A beginner’s guide to careers in engineering!

Careers in engineering- where do you begin?

Careers in Engineering can be anything from utilising the principles of science to selling hydraulics to large corporations. Although a seemingly restrictive career choice at first glance, careers in engineering could lead you to researching and designing ways to remove plastics from the ocean, building and maintaining software systems, developing or maintaining advanced communication systems, helping steam turbines to run more effectively and much more besides!

Beginning your career means having a strong knowledge and often employers look for degrees in the field to feel confident that you know the ins and out of engineering. Once you’ve completed your degree you can be happy in knowing that engineering has one of the highest starting salaries, with the average salary sitting around £26,536.

However, how can you begin your career in engineering and what are the ideal skills employers are searching for?

The industry is huge, with mass varieties of roles and disciplines available that can suit anyone interested in science, technology, construction and manufacturing. However, engineering can be dangerous work so it’s always good to know the basics and all the safety regulations surrounding the path you want to take.

Even though you may think you can only enter engineering with a bachelor’s degree, there are other paths you may prefer to take!

For many routes, a BSc in a relevant subject such as chemistry, biology, maths, statistics, environmental science or computer science can help you begin a career in engineering, as can a Master’s degree in engineering, if you’d prefer to follow the academic route.

However, careers such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and software engineering will usually allow you to enter the industry without a degree. This route may prove more difficult as you will need to show you have the relevant skills and work experience to adequately perform your role. It’s highly likely you will be able to enter the industry through apprenticeships or graduate schemes, these do still require academic work but you will gain work experience and see a more hands on approach to your learning.

When writing your CV for these roles we recommend laying out exactly what the employer is looking for. Are they searching for a skilled software developer with X and Y skills? If so, research the role and lay out the exact skills you have that match the role, ideally highlighting X and Y skills. Remember to showcase any relevant experience or education, it’s not the time to be modest! If possible, lay out the facts and figures to support any outcomes or achievements of the work you have produced that you’re proud of either during work experience or education.

Your CV, in most cases, is your first impression. By having a strong, clear and concise CV that highlights your strengths and expertise within the sector can place you above other candidates!
