Working in Robotics & Engineering – Engineer

The Working In… series compiles a selection of fascinating STEM jobs in a multitude of fields. They are designed to highlight the variety of STEM careers available to students that they may not have considered, or been aware of before now. Find out where your future career may lie here.

Meet Sarah, an Engineer at Nova Systems. A lack of direction, by her own admission, meant she wasn’t the best student for most of her educational career, but now she has a PhD.

Sarah draws upon skills such as teamwork and communication just as much as her maths and science knowledge.

She believes one of the most exciting things about working in Engineering is not only making a real difference to people’s lives, but the variety of things she gets to be involved in.

This activity is best suited to Year 8 and 10 Physics and STEM students who are exploring future careers.
