Graduate Destinations

Each year, every university in the UK contacts all UK and EU graduates to find out what they are doing on a specific date, approximately six months after graduation. This is the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

The following analysis is based on the data supplied by 18 Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Industrial Project MEng Honours graduates from Newcastle University who responded to our survey.

2013 Newcastle University Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Industrial Project MEng Honours Graduates

HESA categories

89% went into work, study or a combination of both.

Of those in employment, 100% were in graduate-level jobs.

£25,360 was the average salary of all of the graduates who supplied us with salary details.

The 6% unemployed includes those with jobs arranged to start after the date of this survey.

The classification 'other' can refer to a range of individual circumstances, for example, EU students who return to their country for national service.

Career Choices

Due to the specialised technical expertise gained at Newcastle University, most Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Industrial Project MEng Honours graduates go on to begin careers as engineers. The variety within their roles is considerable: from working in national defence, digital technology, in the energy industry or for world-renowned automotive companies. Some of our students also choose to undertake specialist postgraduate courses, or secure PhDs in their area of interest.

Below are recent examples of graduates' employment destinations. For data protection reasons, due to the small sample size, we are unable to provide detailed further study examples for this group of students.
