Science, Engineering and I.T.

Science, Engineering and I.T. covers a huge range of graduate 'technical' jobs. 

Below are some of the options available:  

Research and Development

Graduates can find jobs in research and development in a variety of different industries.  Degrees considered for these roles vary depending on the industry so graduates in life sciences, engineering, and IT can all find jobs that will put their years of study into good use.  Graduates in a research and development job will use their scientific skills to develop new products, processes or services for social or commercial use.  Graduates will need to be extremely analytical, with a good eye for detail, and a lot of employers will be interested in research projects conducted whilst at university.  Most graduate jobs will require the applicant to be proficient in the use of certain lab based equipment and IT packages so make sure that this is listed on your CV.

I.T.

Information Technology includes jobs such as Programming, System Analysis and Software Developing.  Although some I.T. skills can be self taught, having a degree in computer science, software engineering or information systems, will definitely improve your chances of finding a graduate job within Information Technology.  Graduates must have a passion for the role and will usually need to demonstrate some relevant technical skills during the interview process.

Engineering

Graduate Engineers have many career options open to them and unlike many other graduates, are finding themselves in great demand.  Engineering Graduates can find "hands on" engineering jobs such as a Graduate Project engineer, Graduate Process engineer, or Research and Development, but there are also some fantastic opportunities available for graduates looking for a job in design and for more business based roles such as commercial or sales engineering.  Graduates in Chemical, Process, Mechanical, Electronic, Electrical, Automotive, Aerospace, Nuclear, Civil, Architectural, Structural and others will find sector specific roles here.
