Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession hit the construction industry very hard and that has meant a tough few years for graduates in related subjects. Building graduates haven't had as difficult a time as other construction grads, though. Most graduates get jobs quickly, with quantity building surveyors, construction engineering and site management roles amongst the most common. There are jobs to be had in most parts of the country, so if you're technically-inclined and want to work somewhere specific, it might be worth considering this as an option. Building graduates are more likely than most to start their career with an employer who gave them work experience, so it’s particularly worth trying to secure links with industry if you take this degree.
