General engineering, Civil engineering, mechanical engineering, Aerospace engineering, Naval architecture, Electronic & electrical engineering, Production & manufacturing engineering, Chemical, process & energy engineering, Metallurgy, Ceramics & glass, Polymers & textiles, Materials technology, Maritime technology, Biotechnology

General Median salaries to compare with below:

For all 24-29-year-olds in work in 2014-15: £20,800 WonkHE.   For all ages, £27,600 in 2015 ASHE

Interesting points from the depths of the LEO spreadsheet:

Very few courses below the national average of median earnings. 30k plus median earnings from Derby and Harper Adams from the lowest prior attainment band – Well done!  Be aware of local Engineering apprenticeship opportunities at Advanced, higher and Degree level.

It’s not just about the money!

There are many reasons to go to university; Love of a subject, independent and critical thinking, independent living (if affordable!).  It’s not just about salary levels, however applicants must not be misled by general statements about a blanket graduate dividend, these can be clearly bogus.  See information below.

For courses with a clear vocational link, check to see if there is a relevant apprenticeship standard:
