As an engineer you will use your knowledge of mathematics and physics to solve real physical problems. Some companies will hire maths graduates, or gradates with highly numerate degrees, straight out of university; however, many firms will ask that you have completed an engineering conversion MSc in the relevant field of study. These MScs, as described in the postgraduate section of this site, are year long, intensive, taught courses that are the first step towards becoming chartered.
