What can I do with my degree in Construction/Engineering?

Further study


Most building and construction graduates go into employment but a small proportion (2.4%) (source) go on to do further study. A higher proportion of engineering graduates go into further study (9.1% for civil engineering (source), 10.1% for mechanical engineering (source), 9.7% for electrical and electronic engineering (source)). This could be to advance their skills and knowledge in a particular specialism, to gain further management expertise or to go into academia, research or teaching.
