Karina McNally - Electronic Engineering
"Start thinking about what lessons you enjoy the most and look into what kind of roles you could go in to.
I would say that it’s okay to change your mind, you don’t have to have it all figured out right now - Your future doesn’t need to be mapped out whilst at university, but it is a great place to start."

Research and development in driverless vehicles requires the skills of mechanical engineers who focus on the way vehicles move and function efficiently. This exciting area of engineering also involves the skills of electronics and robotic engineers, computer scientists, AI software developers and more.
In our increasingly crowded skies, aeronautical and aircraft engineers are challenged to create more efficient aircraft, develop more advanced systems, and manage aircraft flight paths.
The extensive Manchester Metrolink tram network is a result of multiple civil and structural engineering firms designing, constructing, maintaining and developing the network, while technical firms deliver the systems required to keep everything moving.
The work of acoustic consultants influences the design of curved roofs in football stadiums, and the microphone and speaker systems installed, to enhance the experience inside the stadium, and reduce the impact of noise on the local area.
As electric and hybrid vehicles become more popular, more affordable, and more convenient, electrical and electronic engineers will be in high demand to build the systems they require, and will work to develop even more advanced technology to improve the efficiency of car travel.
