Many of these businesses trade internationally and are instrumental to both the supply chain and our local economy. Key application engineering markets include defence, marine, renewables and transportation.

Additionally, organisations such as Raytheon in Glenrothes and Babcock in Rosyth represent defence engineering in the Kingdom adding strength to the engineering skillset within the Kingdom.
