Employment prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive several firm offers of employment before graduating. A report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector.
The Humber region is rapidly emerging as the ‘Energy Estuary’ and 29% of all enterprises are engineering-related, with an overall turnover of £61 billion. This has created a range of challenging and rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates.
The expertise you gain as an engineering graduate – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, capacity to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams – are much in demand in all areas of engineering and this means that starting salaries and average earnings are reflected as a result.
You will also find that your engineering degree makes you highly sought-after and much in demand by leading companies, particularly in the global market place; your engineering degree can therefore lead to a career anywhere in the world.
