Less than half of engineering graduates go into engineering
A report published by the Royal Academy of Engineering shows that fewer than half of engineering graduates go into professional engineering jobs. The research in Pathways to success in engineering degrees and careers also shows that students who study engineering at post-1992 universities are just as likely to get professional engineering jobs as those from Russell Group and other pre-1992 universities. In some cases, post-1992 students are, in f...
