Career Opportunities

Engineering careers in healthcare, design, communications, manufacturing, food production, power generation and transport are some of the industries that graduates of engineering work in. Engineers contribute to technologies that we use everyday. People use mobile phones, computers, the internet, high definition TV and digital cameras every day.

Today the world is connected through communications systems. The smart grid, electric cars, robotics, the music industry, and countless other systems and areas are continually developing and advancing.

As an engineering graduate, you will be involved in designing, building, automating, testing and managing. You may work on aircraft engine production, power station maintenance, water filtering plants, computer chip production systems, pharmaceutical production facilities or light rail systems.
