Subject

General or integrated engineering

At Cambridge, as well as being a member of the University, you're also a member of a College. All Colleges admit students for a wide range of different courses and so you will have a number of Colleges to choose from - or if you really don’t mind you can make an Open application and we will allocate one to you. You can use the course options tab above to navigate through the different Colleges which offer this course.

Engineering is about designing processes and making products to solve real-world problems. Our unique course allows you to keep your options open while equipping you with all the analytical, design and computing skills that underpin modern engineering practice. Years 1 and 2 provide a broad education in engineering fundamentals, enabling you to make a genuinely informed choice about the area in which to specialise. Years 3 and 4 then provide in-depth training in your chosen professional discipline.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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 the average starting salary was a very healthy £26,400 for 2015 graduates. Graduates are able to specialise enough to be working in jobs in engineering — especially in design and development - as well as engineering project management. IT and management consultancy were some of the more common jobs outside engineering. 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.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
