Evolutionary Biologist

Evolutionary biologists are specifically interested in knowing more about the evolution of plants and animals. They seek to discover more about the history of life on earth, how organisms have changed and developed over time and the causes of this evolution. They cover a vast range of work from looking at DNA in the lab to studying how individual species have evolved in a particular ecosystem.

Attributes: imaginative, open-minded, resilient

Marine Engineer

Marine engineers are involved in the designing, building, testing, maintaining and repairing of boats and ships as well as underwater craft such as submarines. They are responsible for the internal systems of a ship, such as the propulsion, electrical, refrigeration and steering systems. They can be involved in work such as marine surveying, drilling underwater for oil and gas and in the building of offshore platforms.

Attributes: passionate, imaginative, open-minded

Civil Engineer

Civil engineers are responsible for the designing and building of structures such as bridges, transport links and road systems as well as larger structures such as stadiums. Civil engineers work in both the public and private sector, planning projects with clients, analysing surveys, creating blueprints, checking the risks and the effects on the environment and managing and checking progress at each stage of the project.

Attributes: open-minded, organised, resilient

Astronomers are a type of scientist that study objects in space. There are two types of astronomers. Observational astronomers collect data from satellites and spacecraft using radio and optical telescopes, develop new instruments to gather information and develop software to analyse and interpret data. Theoretical Astronomers develop theories on the physical processes happening in space and analyse data to help develop our understanding of events in the universe.

Attributes: open-minded, self-motivated, patient

Satellite Engineer

Satellite engineers are involved in the development of satellites which are launched for specific purposes such as communications, atmospheric studies or navigation. They design satellite command systems that remotely control satellite activities from ground stations and keep satellites functioning properly. Satellite engineers also collect data that tracks satellite behaviour and write status reports.

Attributes: hard-working, open-minded, communicative
