The mechanical, electric and hydraulic engineering used in lifts and escalators is continuously evolving, so you will learn how to repair and maintain older equipment and discover new, high-tech solutions. You might get involved in replacing a whole system, taking out old mechanical, hydraulic, electric and electronic parts, and leaving an up to date, modern machine in its place.
Lifts, escalators and moving walkways come in a wide variety of types and sizes. They are used for moving both goods and people and support journeys across buildings, as well as up and down them. You’ll find them in warehouses, high rise flats and offices, hotels, airports, railway stations, and within people’s homes.
