National Careers Week

This National Careers Week (4th-8th March 2024) young people are being encouraged to consider engineering as a career path, as a new report finds almost 7 in 10 (68%) engineering and technology graduates are in paid work in the engineering sector, earning more on average than those in other occupations.

The report from EngineeringUK also shows an engineering and technology degree brings graduates positive job prospects specifically relevant to their degrees, highlighting the importance of choosing your degree carefully.

Almost three quarters (73%) of engineering students went on to work in paid employment, compared to 70% of all other subjects combined, an increase compared to last year.

Ari spoke to report author Becca Gooch.
