The BEng Hons Engineering Management is a four-year, professionally accredited, undergraduate engineering course that is designed to equip you with a valuable blend of engineering and management skills. It provides you with a broad based education and includes studies in engineering technology and materials, manufacturing systems and processes, product and system design, complemented by studies in business and management. Optional subjects offer you the opportunity to pursue your particular interests. During your industrial placement year you experience and participate in real-life engineering and you learn how theory relates to practice. Successful completion of the placement leads to the award of the Diploma in Professional Practice (DPP) upon graduation. As professional engineers, graduates from the course are in high demand not only in manufacturing industry but also are employed in utilities, transportation, primary industries, consultancy and business.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. 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.

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?
