Engineering graduates enjoy strong prospects, study finds

Discover why nearly two-thirds of engineering and technology graduates are landing jobs in their field, with promising career prospects and competitive salaries. A recent study using data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) reveals that engineering graduates are not only more likely to find relevant employment but also feel more "on track" with their future plans compared to their non-engineering peers.

Key findings include higher employment rates, better salaries, and greater job relevance for engineering graduates. Despite these positive trends, the report highlights the ongoing need to improve representation of women, lower socio-economic backgrounds, and Black/Black British individuals in engineering degrees.

Dr. Hilary Leevers, Chief Executive at EngineeringUK, underscores the growing job opportunities in this critical industry, emphasizing that both higher education and vocational routes like apprenticeships and T Levels can pave the way for a successful engineering career.
