Mechanical Engineer Jobs

How to Enter

A common pathway to becoming a Mechanical Engineer within the Oil and Gas industry, is to complete a New Zealand Diploma in Engineering combined with relevant work experience. However, you can also complete a Bachelor of Engineering, specialising in Mechanical Engineering to provide your career with a competitive boost.

 

Typical Responsibilities

The typical daily job responsibilities of a Mechanical Engineer can include some or all of the following:

  • Determining work requirements
  • Investigating existing systems and preparing reports based on findings
  • Identifying the environmental and safety risks of planned work
  • Drawing specifications for machines and parts
  • Calculating cost estimates for jobs
  • Supervising the building, installation, repair and replacement of systems

Progression

Alternatively, Engineers can also become a consultant within an engineering consultancy or move into Project Engineering. That said, Mechanical Engineering is a broad discipline and many professionals choose to specialise further within this field, including HVAC, Energy Resources, Manufacturing or even Robotics.
