National Graduate Week

Engineering and Manufacturing

Working in this sector could see you working anywhere from buildings in your local community to space aircraft in aerospace engineering and everything in between. The industry is the linchpin to nearly everything we see and do in the modern world, there is almost no structure or mechanism which hasn’t been developed through an engineer or manufacturer.

Areas of work that require qualified engineering and manufacturing graduates include music, space, pharmaceuticals, automation, robotics, nuclear and biotechnology.

Due to a sector-wide skills shortage demand for engineering and manufacturing graduates is high. There is an especially high requirement for more females within the sector and much thinking and strategy goes into how to recruit female STEM talent.
