Plant and Mechanical Engineers design, install and repair plant machinery and parts.
To get into mechanical engineering you will usually be required to have a degree.
Degrees in mechanical engineering, engineering science, aeronautical engineering, agricultural engineering, computer-aided engineering, manufacturing engineering or nuclear engineering are looked upon favourably by employers.
It is useful if your first degree or masters is accredited by a relevant professional body, such as the Institution of Mechanical Engineers as it can help you to achieve the status of chartered engineer at a later date.
It is possible to enter the career as a trainee without a degree but you would need to build up the necessary skills and knowledge, and possibly take higher qualifications, to work up to the role of mechanical engineer.
Salaries will vary depending on location / employer.
* Salaries have been collected from multiple industry sources and have been updated as of 2019
