Science and engineering graduates with communication and sales skills face good prospects as the demand for technical sales engineers increases. As a technical sales engineer, you’ll use your technical knowledge along with sales skills to provide advice and support on a range of products, for which a certain level of expertise is needed. You’ll assist colleagues with bids and tenders for new clients from a technical perspective.

Employers usually encourage, and may even expect, further study at postgraduate level in technical or business-related subjects.
