What's this about?
Do you enjoy practical work and fixing things? Can you stay calm under pressure?
As a maintenance engineer you could be working in the front line of a factory diagnosing breakdown problems, ordering parts and fixing machines.
You could also be working out on a customer site, for example, fixing a customer’s security alarm system or ordering parts for a broken washing machine.
You are likely to be using computerised systems to fault find and oversee routine maintenance.
Maintenance engineers work in all fields of engineering.
