Being an engineer is about coming up with solutions to problems that no one else knows the answer to. Whether they are creating the smallest Nano machines to the largest construction projects embarked upon by man, engineers are imperative to the design and implementation of those ideas.
So far so good? It gets even better. Engineering is central to the wellbeing and economic development of every nation and the UK is no exception. The UK is first in the world in terms of productivity and second in the world in terms of research excellence. Engineering accounted for £239bn of exports in 2011, that’s a staggering 48% of our total exports for that year. Last year it generated £280bn in Value Added to the UK Economy (a fifth of our total GVA). It also generated £455bn (27%) of the GDP in the UK.
Despite the fact that engineering is integral to the successful running of our economy, it is also victim to a shortfall in skilled workers. This may seem odd being that our engineering sector already employs roughly 14.5 million people, which is approximately 55% of the employed population. It is estimated that the UK will need an extra 182,000 engineers per year until 2020 so the good news for engineers is, you’re in demand. And for anyone thinking of a career in engineering, you too will be in demand. With the average Graduate Engineer wage starting at around £27,000, pursuing it as a career is a bit of a no brainer. With twice as many vacancies as there are recruits, engineers are in a position to dictate their futures and subsequently, their careers.
