Working with products used in our everyday lives, engineers in the competitive fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry must be innovative to deliver high-turnover products that motivate, execute and encourage customers to buy and use. The key for FMCG Engineers is to interpret the goals of a business into products and adapt quickly in line with market shifts.

Electrical & Electronic Engineers are primarily focused on the design and manufacture of systems for buildings, transport and construction. Involved from the initial design stage all of the way through to the implementation of an electrical system, professionals in this field typically work in project teams and will collaborate with colleagues in other branches of engineering.

An integral element of a construction project, Construction Engineers are involved in the design, planning, construction and management of infrastructures including roads, tunnels, bridges, airports and railways. Professionals in this field are responsible for the planning and direction of projects, from the initial design all of the way through to monitoring activities to make sure all plans are on-track. ​

Operating in a technically complex industry, Aerospace Engineers work on innovative products and solutions that push the limits of technology. Typically responsible for the overall design and structure of an air transport vehicle, professionals in this field will design components and systems, analyse structures, fluids and electrical systems, before manufacturing the technology and testing it.

Responsible for the construction of roads and public transport, Automotive & Transport Engineers design, produce and operate vehicles including cars, trucks and buses from the early design stages through to production and quality. Additionally, these highly sought-after professionals are at the forefront of developments including electric vehicles, driver assistance systems and connected cars.

Manufacturing Engineers work in areas in areas including design, production, supply chain and logistics for an array of industries such as oil, food and drink and pharmaceuticals. Requiring a high level of technical expertise, roles in Manufacturing Engineering need analytical thinkers who are able to add value to raw materials by transforming them into products.

Chemical & Petrochemical Engineers work on the development of machines and plants, which lead to chemical reactions that create thousands of industrial and consumer products including plastics, detergents and preservatives. Professionals in this field can work within a range of industries, with their skills particularly in-demand in pharmaceutical, energy and water treatment.

Focused on national security and the stability of governments, Defence Engineering sees the design and production of military equipment, vehicles and systems. Professionals in this field apply robust science, maths and IT skills to develop cutting-edge technology with the goal of maintaining the security and wellbeing of nations across the world.

Marine Engineers are responsible for designing, building and manufacturing any vessel that travels in and on water, including ships, boats, and submarines all of the way through to dinghies. Additionally, these professionals can be involved in carrying out the same work for oil rigs and drilling equipment.

Operating in a range of industries including manufacturing, construction and transport, Mechanical Engineers are responsible for creating solutions and solving problems. With a solid understanding of mechanics and thermodynamics, these professionals work at all stages of a product, from research and development through to installation and final commissioning.

Possessing a detailed knowledge of nutrition and technical engineering, Food & Beverage Engineers develop food and drink processes and products of the best quality for the public. To do this, professionals in this field continuously monitor, test and refine production processes to achieve the right results for both the producer and, most importantly, the consumer.

Medical Device & Pharmaceutical Engineers are responsible for devising new methods, technologies and products that positively impact lives through improving health and fighting diseases. Professionals in this field work across a broad medical landscape, requiring them to get involved with hands-on mechanical engineering all of the way through to compliance and quality.

A subdiscipline of electrical, software, electronics mechanical, mechanical, and optical, precision engineering is primarily involved in high technology, value-added activities for products and services used in demanding environments. Professionals in this field typically design aerospace, consumer, energy, machine and space applications with huge operating pressures.
