Land-Based Engineering

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!

Although there are two distinct career options, agricultural or forestry engineering, it is fair to say that each are 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% of which are service engineers.

With a grasp of sophisticated control systems and the application of Information Technology commonly employed in today's industry, the world can be your oyster.
