Improve your foundation degree or HND in Mechanical Maintenance Engineering and move into a role with more responsibility and better prospects - not to mention higher earning potential. As a graduate, you’ll have the knowledge you need to use technological principles to solve engineering problems, generating innovative solutions to challenging issues in fields like maintenance, precision technologies, machine diagnostics, engineering management, and technology specification. Mechanical maintenance engineering students who graduate without honours may be restricted in their profession to postgraduate education and may wish to consider completing an alternative Bachelor's degree with honours. Mechanical maintenance engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever and due to a shortage in this field, a world of career options is available to you. You could find yourself working in aerospace, the automotive industry, biotechnology, construction, manufacturing, utilities, the Ministry of Defence or local authorities as well as service industries. Once you have several years' experience, you could also look at self-employment via contract work, and occasionally consultancy. All our graduates are in employment or have undertaken postgraduate studies. Graduates in mechanical maintenance engineering typically secure employment in engineering industries including structural engineering, automotive engineering and design, aerospace industry, manufacturing, processing and chemical industries, oil and gas, as well as management positions.
