Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although the chemicals industry, like a lot of manufacturing, had a tough time during the recession, the UK has had a shortage of chemical engineers for a while now so starting salaries are good. In fact, across the UK, only doctors and dentists bettered the average starting salary for chemical engineering graduates, and in Scotland, where the best starting salaries for chemical engineers are to be found (thanks to the oil and gas industry), even dentists lagged behind last year. So if you want to make good money from the start, this is the degree to take. Most graduates take a longer course that leads to an MEng – which is what you need to take if you want to be a Chartered Engineer. Chemical engineers are also more likely than other engineers to take doctorates and go into research roles, so if you want to take an engineering subject but fancy a research job, this might be a good subject to take.
