Career paths

Graduates in Control and Instrumentation Engineering have excellent career prospects in the fast-growing power generation and power distribution sectors, including low-carbon and renewable generation as well as the manufacturing industry. Many will take up control and instrumentation engineering posts in power stations, power distribution network operators, or government or private research and development facilities. Graduates will also be well-versed in the general principles of Electronic Engineering, with all the career opportunities those skills entail. However, the problem-solving and numerate nature of all our engineering degree courses means that graduates will be highly valued in many other professions, ranging from general management roles to working as numerical analysts. Postgraduate study is another exciting option for some.
