Engineering offers a fast moving career with great potential for progression.
The days of getting by with just a trusty box of spanners and a monkey wrench are long gone.
Land-based Engineering at SRUC will provide you with a strong grasp of sophisticated control systems and the application of I.T. commonly employed in today's industry.
Although there are two distinct career options, agricultural engineering or forestry engineering, it is fair to say each is founded on common engineering principles and similar technology.
Over 6,000 companies in the UK sell and service agricultural and garden machinery. There are approximately 60,000 individuals working in the sector, 30 per cent of whom are service engineers.
