Earnings can vary depending on experience but new entrants can expect a starting salary of £20K-£25K per annum, with the potential for this to rise above £30K. The best locations in the UK for job opportunities and pay are usually London or the South East, where senior design engineers can earn in excess of £50K.

A degree, HND or HNC are generally expected of candidates trying to enter the job role and these could be in a range of areas including CAD Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering Product Design. The Institute of Engineering Designers (IED) also provides a number of accredited courses whereas employers may also accept candidates with credentials in mechanical or civil engineering.

Specialist engineering recruitment agencies will be best equipped to supply quality design engineers for a range of industries.
