For up and coming Engineers...

There are many routes into engineering in the UK. This may include taking A-Levels in maths and science subjects before studying a relevant subject at university. This will typically take three to four years, depending on the course you choose. Once you are a qualified engineer, you can secure chartered status by completing a higher education course in engineering. This could include an MEng degree or a PhD. Achieving chartered status allows you to increase your earning potential. Studying for

There are also vocational routes into engineering to consider. This will allow you to study while you work and gain valuable on-the-job experience. Engineering apprenticeships are an alternative to engineering degrees for those who want to work while they study. Some apprenticeships require A-Levels in maths and a science subject while others only require GCSEs.

Organisations that offer engineering apprenticeships in the UK include BAE SystemsToyotaBT and the Royal Navy.
An engineer is a professional responsible for inventing, designing, analysing, building and testing structures, materials, machines or other complex systems. Engineers use the principles of science, technology and maths to solve problems and find solutions. In addition to a strong understanding of maths and science, engineers often also benefit from strong commercial awareness.

Engineers will often specialise in a branch of engineering, such as electrical engineering, structural engineering or civil engineering. Engineers are also often defined by their work role and location. Office-based engineers will help to design and analyse designs while on-site engineers oversee the building and operation of structures and designs.

Engineering is a lucrative industry that can be a highly rewarding career path. There are many paths into engineering, including higher education and apprenticeships. Engineering typically attracts individuals who excel in STEM subjects. Some engineers will have NVQs while others will have PhDs.
Engineers often excel in STEM subjects, such as maths, physics and chemistry. There are two common routes into engineering. This includes the higher education route and the vocational training route.

Before studying for A-Levels, it’s a good idea to secure GCSEs in maths and a science subject such as physics. For a chemical engineering path, chemistry might also be required. A-Levels in maths and a science subject will then allow you to apply for an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject area. A BEng undergraduate degree will take between 3 and 4 years to complete.

After undergraduate study, it is possible to secure a job as an engineer and gain further experience. Further education is available for those who want to specialise or secure chartered status. This will allow you to increase your earning potential. For chartered status, you will need an MEng or PhD in a relevant engineering field.
