Solve real-world problems to make sure every part of the system functions as it should with engineering and electrical apprenticeships
As an engineer, you need to be a creative thinker, a problem solver, a communicator and a team player, constantly changing the world with solutions to improve people’s lives. The world is alive with technology—from washing machines, televisions, computers and central heating boilers, to cars, trains and aircraft—the list of devices and systems that we use and enjoy on a daily basis is almost limitless.
Each and every piece of technology requires a legion of skilled people making sure their part of the system functions as it should—from the plumber mending a broken pipe to the team of electricians wiring up an office block. Engineering and electrical apprenticeships has it all.
The engineering and electrical apprenticeships available in this sector cover a range of industries and professions, many of them are specialist in nature to suit the particular demands of certain roles.
Aerospace software development engineers develop, modify and upgrade the systems that control aircraft, while composites technicians combine materials to form a lighter and stronger rigid structure as an alternative to metal. The electronic product service and installation engineer will install and service a range of domestic and commercial equipment, from washing machines and microwaves, to television and audio equipment.
Engineering operatives carry out a range of operations, ensuring machines and equipment are maintained and serviceable, while ordnance munitions and explosives professionals work with ‘energetic’ hazardous materials such as explosives, propellants and pyrotechnics. There’s also a demand for non-destructive testing engineers, wireless communications riggers and much more.
There is an engineering route for everyone, just consider the type of problems you are interested in solving and take a look at the engineering and electrical apprenticeships featured in this sector.
