Career opportunities

In 2008 we celebrated the 40 th anniversary of our MSc course.  In that time graduates of the course have achieved top ranking industrial and academic positions in their home countries, in the UK and around the world.

Graduates from the course are employed in a variety of industries, including process and petro-chemical industries, manufacturing, power generation and the automotive and aerospace sectors.  Recently there has been a surge in demand for control engineers in the field of biomedicine.  More generally feedback control and systems engineering skills play an important part in an ever widening range of high tech applications.

The MSc can also be used a spring board for postgraduate research.  Approximately 50% of the current PhD students in the Control Systems Group are graduates from the MSc course.
