Perhaps you want to be an Engineer or Technologist? TV, Radio and Internet is a Science…fact! Without the creative innovations developed by leading Engineers of years gone by, we wouldn't have TV & Radio. Broadcasting is an industry that is varied from the creation of TV programmes like Doctor Who, Eastenders and live shows such as The Voice, BBC Proms and not to mention Glastonbury.
60% of Engineers across Europe are within 10 years of retirement and technology changes at a rapid pace. The BBC needs to ensure we have enough Engineers trained to the highest standard to prevent us from falling off the air and to also pioneer and innovate the future!
