Why Engineering?

One of the great attractions of engineering work is the huge variety of tasks and environments in which engineers find themselves working here and overseas.

From designing programs at a computer terminal, to overseeing maintenance operations for major structures like aircraft, ships, heavy earth moving equipment, mobile cranes and offshore oil platforms – there are many ways to be involved in engineering

One of the main disciplines Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering turns energy into power and motion. Mechanical Engineers design, create and improve systems and machinery that is used for domestic, public and industrial purposes.
