Engineering is a diverse field that encompasses a wide range of specialties, each contributing to innovation and problem-solving in its own unique way.

But what does it take to be an engineer? What do you need to do to stay on top of your game? Should you look to become a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer? Or an Engineering Technician? Where do you start? What support is available?

This week on EngX it’s all about Careers.

In our Community Insights blog, Colleagues at the IET will be sharing information about Continuing Professional Development, the training courses available to help you work towards Professional Registration and how the IET can support neurodiverse, hearing and visually impaired applicants.

We'll also hear from three inspiring engineers in our new blog series 'My Engineering Career' launching during Careers Week.  In this ongoing series, we'll delve into case studies highlighting the career journeys of engineers working in different branches of engineering, from mechanical to electrical, civil to aerospace, and beyond. Through these real-life stories, we aim to showcase the diverse opportunities available in the world of engineering, the challenges these professionals face, and the impactful contributions they make to society. Whether you're a seasoned professional looking to broaden your perspective or an aspiring engineer seeking inspiration, join us as we uncover the stories behind the careers of engineers shaping the world around us.
