Professional Engineers Please Come In, A Graduate Engineer Needs Guidance. by MajesticD(m): 8:14am On Nov 16
Good day, FAM. Please I need apt guidance on how to advance my professional career and your inputs will be greatly appreciated.

I graduated in 2016 with a 2:1 in mechanical engineering from one of the state tertiary institutions. I secured and currently teach in a secondary school and the pay has helped in saving up a little. By next year I will be 29 and must have past the age for most graduate trainee roles, however, my only experience has been my 6 months I.T and so I don't qualify for intermediate or experience roles. I wish to know what professional trainings will give me an edge in my bid to break into the oil and gas/energy sector.

Personally, I have been undecided between going for Piping engineering training and Rotary/Static equipment maintenance, operation and troubleshooting training. Please what are the pros and cons of this two specialist trainings with regards to securing a job in the oil sector, and are there other options I should be considering?

Thanks in advance.

I am a Graduate Mech Engr also i want to advise you not to limit yourself to working in the oil and gas industry alone because it is highly competitive consider options in Manufacturing/fast moving consumer goods/Power Plant industry also as regards the training you can Google AETI,Gil Automation and for Piping/Subsea and facilities engineering Check hommaston but theit training is expensive say about 250k to 500k.

Thank you very much for the input, I definitely will not limit myself to the oil industry. However, it's the first option. My main motivation is actually to to kick start a professional career in my field of passion (engineering) and breaking into it is of utmost importance. Will check the mentioned institutes. Thanks
