As a parent you want your child to get the best possible start in their career. There are so many options available to young people after they leave school and here, we would like to outline information and benefits about a career in Land-based Engineering.
We wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of Land-based Engineering, what it is or what it involves. There are many terms used such as: agricultural engineering, professional turf engineering, farm machinery engineering, and horticultural engineering. and you may well believe that Land-based Engineering work outdoors with long hours, poor pay and bad working conditions. These are misconceptions brought from an industry way gone ….. the sector you see today is on a completely different plain and ranked as one of the most technically advanced in industry.
We want you to look at things differently. This is about a diverse industry of innovation and opportunity offering interesting and challenging careers. The technology employed in the Land-based Engineering sectors meets or exceeds applications found in the military, aviation and formula 1 industries.
Those working in the Land-based Engineering sectors work with the most technically advanced products which may include; GPS and telemetry, drones, robotics, autonomous vehicles and alternative fuel sources.
It can involve working with big data and information technology; most of all it includes providing ‘hands on’ engineering and technological solutions, to support the machines and equipment that are transforming the world we live in…… improving our ecosystem, the food we eat and inspiring new generations to a more sustainable tomorrow.
