The most well-known engineering career routes include civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering and electrical engineering.
Graduate civil engineering jobs
Those who have studied civil engineering often choose to either go into the construction industry or into the wider business and financial sector. Civil engineering jobs tend to be split into consulting civil engineer or contracting civil engineer roles.
Graduate chemical engineering jobs
Chemical engineers can also be known as process engineers and tend to examine and design machinery and processes in manufacturing.
Graduate mechanical engineering jobs
For those looking for a career in mechanical engineering, there are a wide variety of disciplines to choose from. As a rule, mechanical engineers work to develop solutions and improvements to mechanical processes, whether that is in manufacturing or in the energy sector.
Graduate aeronautical engineering jobs
As a graduate aeronautical engineer, you’ll apply technology and mathematical principles to design and develop aircraft, rockets and other vehicles.
Graduate electrical engineering jobs
Electrical engineers maintain, design and develop electrical systems for all types of technology and electrical equipment.
