Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The stats here mainly cover radiography graduates (diagnostic radiography more than therapeutic). With a lot of modern medicine (and dentistry) using high-tech equipment, there are big opportunities for medical technology grads, although most early careers are spent operating these complex instruments, rather than designing or developing them. We are short of graduates in these roles, with radiography a particular area of concern and becoming one of the most in-demand specialities in the health industry and whilst this cannot guarantee you a job, outcomes are very good for graduates and this looks likely to continue.
