Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
As a mixed subject within engineering where students get a chance to learn from a range of disciplines, this course isn't taken by as many people as some of the more specialist disciplines. Demand for engineering skills is high, though, and so unemployment rates are low and starting salaries competitive. Graduates are able to specialise enough to be working in jobs in engineering – particularly mechanical, civil, design, and electrical engineering, as well as engineering project management. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to a MEng qualification – this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.
