Engineering is all around us from roads, to bridges to the aeroplanes we fly and the cars we drive to the Wi-Fi we use, the clean water we drink and the prosthetics used in the medical profession.
You will usually need a degree in an engineering-related field. However, for some organisations other STEM-related degrees are also welcome – always check the employer requirements.
