Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession probably hit construction the hardest of all industries, which meant that civil engineering, which had one of the lowest unemployment rates before the downturn, was one of the worst affected subjects. Things have got better since then, and appear to be rapidly improving, but normally we'd expect to see unemployment rates at about half of what they are currently. We're still officially short of civil engineers, especially in areas to do with mining, tunnelling and safety, and salaries are well above the graduate average. This is a subject where work experience can be very helpful in getting a job and many students do work for engineering companies while they take their degrees – it’s the most common way for civil engineers to secure their first position.
