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.
