Career opportunities

Graduates in Electronic Engineering have enviable career prospects. As would be expected, many take up electronic engineering posts in small or large businesses, or government or private research and development facilities. However, the problem-solving and numerate nature of our engineering degree courses means that graduates are highly valued in many other professions, ranging from general management roles to working as numerical analysts. Postgraduate study is another exciting option for some.
