Engineering Design and Mathematics graduate destinations
From the moment our students start, they get careers information and advice - from employers, our careers team, and their tutors. So by the time they graduate, they will be equipped with the experience, contacts and skills to succeed in their chosen careers.
Great graduate career opportunities
- Engineering graduates go into jobs in a range of industry sectors and roles. These include automotive and aeronautical design, mechanical, electronic, production and process engineering.

Recognised by industry
All of our courses are accredited, or in the process of being accredited. So our students will leave with industry-recognised qualifications and study exemptions in many cases.
Industry ready graduates
Work experience is vital in today's crowded jobs market. Students will have the opportunity to get real world experience working on live briefs and projects. And while they're here, we provide one-to-one support to help them find experience that fits their career plans.
Placement students are more likely to go into high-level graduate jobs and have a higher average starting salary. As well as help finding a placement, we prepare our students through tailored workshops.
Volunteering can help develop valuable skills through opportunities like teaching IT skills, robotics or technical subjects in the community.
Exhibitions such as our annual Faculty of Environment and Technology Degree Show attract employers from across the region. This is the perfect opportunity to show employers work and network with potential employers.
Specialist careers support
Careers advice and coaching is available for each department. The Careers Service run a Professional Development module as well as offering input across all levels to give up-to-date labour market and graduate destination information.
Students are emailed a weekly newsletter with news of opportunities and have access to cloud-based career resources. They can also come along to our twice daily careers drop-in or schedule a one-to-one with our dedicated team. We also arrange regular presentations and Q&As from leading sector employers.
It doesn't end when students graduate. Alumni can access our careers services up until three years after graduation.
Some graduates opt for more in-depth further study in subjects related to their degree. Others progress into teacher training, usually to teach maths to secondary school students.
