Engineering CV template

Engineers are involved in the process of inventing and building many of the products, roads and buildings we use in our daily lives. They work with natural and artificial materials to design and create the electrical, mechanical and structural infrastructure of a country. All of this means that there are many different specialist engineering fields like electrical, aerospace, civil or chemical.

Most of engineering work is project based, therefore in your CV you should give brief details of the entire projects you were involved in and then highlight your specific contribution to its success. Illustrate your technical skills and ability to work as part of a multi disciplined team by listing the various professionals you have worked with, for instance surveyors, planners and contractors.

Write your CV so it concentrates on your specific discipline. To help you do this we have designed our very own engineering focused CVs. Feel free to use the words and phrases in these to create your very own interview winning curriculum vitae.
