Our graduates go on to careers in a wide range of sectors, including banking, accountancy, computing, energy and the environment – but of course, most tend to work in the engineering and manufacturing sector. They’re in high demand, from both multinational companies and lean start-ups.
Some decide to continue their studies at Oxford, or elsewhere, by working towards a doctorate.
Within 6 months of graduating, 92% of our students are in work or further study – and earning an average salary of £30,000.
The Oxford University Careers Service will be on hand throughout your time here, supporting you as you take part in extracurricular activities and summer internships designed to make you stand out in today's jobs market.
