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 13 Chemical Engineering BEng Honours graduates from Newcastle University who responded to our survey.
100% went into work, study or a combination of both.
Of those in employment, 71% were in graduate-level jobs.
£20,400 was the average salary of all of the graduates who supplied us with salary details.
Due to the specialised technical expertise gained at Newcastle University, most graduates go on to pursue careers in process and chemical engineering. After studying at BEng level, some choose to go straight into employment, taking on engineering roles in renewable energy, defence, government, and fast-moving consumer goods. Others use their enhanced technical and analytical abilities to move into roles as scientists and analysts. As it is common to progress to Master's level study in engineering in order to work towards chartered (CEng) status, many choose to further specialise within education, taking on postgraduate subjects such as clean technology.
