Engineering impacts upon every aspect of modern life. Disciplines include mechanical, electrical and electronic, energy, chemicals, metals and materials, aeronautical, other aspects of transport, automotive and bioscience. The pace of technological change in engineering means that there is an increasing need for skilled workers and, according to the Engineering Council, professional engineers currently achieve salaries comparable with other professionals, for example, accountants and solicitors.
