Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Only a few hundred students study the subject every year. But with very few dedicated employers, unevenly spread around the country, there's often competition for graduates looking for their first job. Sponsorship and work experience can be key if you're after the most sought-after roles in the industry - the relatively high early unemployment rate shows that it isn’t always easy for graduates who are not prepared. Starting salaries are usually good, especially if you get a job overseas, and graduates commonly go into the aerospace (yes, this does include manufacture of equipment for satellites and space operations) and defence industries. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification – this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.
