The rapid growth of the communications and microelectronics industries has created a strong demand for skilled engineers, who are able to design and manufacture semiconductors and freespace and optical communication systems. The UK Government’s commitment to high-speed broadband means that demand for communications engineers is expected to outstrip supply. UK and international demand for microelectronic engineers remains strong, with salaries reflecting employers’ need to attract the best candidates.
Upon graduation, you will be well-equipped to apply for roles such as communications engineer, electronic/electrical engineer, operational researcher, software engineer and systems developer. You may also consider the wider engineering and information technology sectors, including energy, transport, electronics and telecommunications, defence and manufacturing and engineering management.
