"As a Technician, you never know what kind of project you may be working on next or even where you will be working. I have had the chance to work on a variety of different projects reigning from Highways to Aviation and Energy to Rail."
..And can go global!
"At the moment I’m working in a team on HS2 and this time last year I was working on Istanbul New Airport which will be the world’s largest when built."
Engineering can be genetics
"I come from a long line of engineers, my father is an ICE Fellow and my Grandfather was a mechanical engineer with Hawker Siddley so it is great following on from them."
But the truth is…It’s a fulfilling job
"I am fortunate to have worked on a number of projects through to completion. I enjoy seeing my designs implemented in the real world and in use on a daily basis.
The best bit of the job is when you see something you designed built in the real world."
Dominik McCormick, who works for AECOM’s transport division in Birmingham, is the youngest ever person to be awarded EngTech MICE status by ICE.
