Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession has made things difficult for graduates in this subject and you would normally expect a lower unemployment rate – but most graduates do get jobs quite quickly after university, and starting salaries are pretty good. The most common jobs are in telecommunications, electrical and electronic engineering, but there is some crossover with the computing industry, so many graduates start work in IT and computing jobs. At the moment, there's a particular demand for electrical engineers in the oil and gas industries, electronics and the car and aerospace industries. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification – this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.
