High Salaries await graduate engineers from the UK as demonstrated by comparative survey of the top ten most highly paid jobs for graduates
Figures recently released by HESA and newly re-published in last week’s Times reveal that four out of the top ten most highly paid graduate jobs are in engineering. Second only to Dentistry and Medicine, Chemical Engineering comes in third with an average graduate starting salary of £28,415. This is closely followed by Economics, with General Engineering coming in fifth with an average graduate starting salary of £25,455

Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering also offer excellent salaries, coming in ninth and tenth on the list of most highly paid jobs at £24,473 and £24,446 respectively.

Paul Jackson, Chief Executive of EngineeringUK, said: “We’ve always known that careers in engineering were creative and inspiring. These latest results from HESA also reveal they are financially rewarding. The next step is to ensure that young people and their influencers are informed and aware of all these benefits.” Paul Jackson, Chief Executive, EngineeringUK
