Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The stats here mainly cover radiography graduates – and as the country is currently short of specialists in some of this area, that means good job prospects and, often, decent starting salaries. 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. Unemployment rates are relatively low in these subjects, and 80% of graduates with jobs became radiographers
