Professional Mechanical Engineers

Mechanical maintenance engineers are highly-qualified following years of technical and practical training. Many systems that need repair or maintenance are intertwined; gas boilers include electrical timers, plumbing systems are linked to heating appliances and machinery with complex, mechanical components is often computerised. Mechanical engineers are frequently skilled in more than one technical field and hold several certifications. They have to be legally registered with one or both of the following:

  • Gas Safe – Government Health and Safety Department that replaced Corgi
  • NICEIC – National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting

Mechanical Engineering Skills

In addition to their far-reaching technical skills, mechanical engineers need to be organised and alert. Identifying when the wear and tear of vital components is at a crucial stage can prevent system failure and save companies considerable sums of money by advising on timely replacements. During emergency mechanical failures the system maintenance engineers need to be particularly quick-thinking to identify the source of a fault. Professional maintenance engineers have the ability to remain confident and calm when working under pressure. Having an aptitude for working both in solitude and as part of a team is essential. Typical duties include:

  • Routine maintenance
  • Emergency repairs
  • Organising additional procedures
  • Advising on safety regulations
  • Ordering and obtaining components
  • Liaising with managers and suppliers
  • Recording financial and technical data
