Electrical and electronic engineering continue to be buoyant industries. Many of our graduates pursue engineering careers in a range of industries, such as electrical and electronic design, manufacturing, power plants, devices and systems design and development, electrical and electronic equipment and systems design and fabrication, and transmission. Others enter the management and commerce sector, or software and IT. Some also choose to continue their studies with further education.

A degree from Nottingham has a high reputation within the electrical and electronic engineering industry, and industry and finance generally, opening up a world of opportunity and prospects. In recent years the majority of our graduates have quickly found career employment with over 97 per cent of our graduates starting work or registering for further study, within three months of graduation.
