      Hi, there are a whole range of jobs an engineer can do. There are the obvious jobs which go with each engineering discipline, such as working in a pharmaceutical company for a chemical engineer, or for an electronics company (e.g. Apple or Intel) for an electronic engineer. Some engineers like to become entrepreneurs and start their own company in their area, which if they’re smart and lucky can make them a lot of money! Also because engineering is a well respected area to have studied and lots of employers respect it some engineers take jobs in other areas such as management or accountancy.
