Futures - Advanced Engineering (Transport)

 

Northern Ireland has a strong tradition of manufacturing and engineering in the transport sector, particularly in aircraft, ship and bus production. In recent years the sector has placed a greater emphasis on advanced engineering, specifically innovation, design and development. This is because cheaper international labour costs mean local companies cannot compete in manufacturing. However, NI companies continue to develop their advanced engineering skills and capabilities.
