Career opportunities

Careers service
Manchester's award winning Careers Service will continue to support you two years after graduation.

Your electrical and electronic engineering degree from The University of Manchester will open up a world of opportunity, and the skills you develop will be sought across a wide range of industries.

For example, our graduates have gone on to forge successful careers in the design and operation of large-scale power systems and their integration with renewable energy sources; the design of electrical machines and associated power conversion systems; high voltage engineering; and oil and gas exploitation.

Alternatively, you might progress into the design of mobile and wireless communications systems; the development of real-time speech and image processing algorithms; the design of guidance and control systems for unmanned intelligent underwater, ground and aerial vehicles; or the development of microcontroller-based embedded systems and robotics.

Each year the Department hosts a careers fair, where you can meet with company representatives and discuss work experience options. These companies include Rolls-Royce, Alstom, National Grid, BP, Centrica, Jaguar Land Rover, National Instruments, Network Rail, Shell, and Siemens.

What's more, graduate with a degree from us and you'll be in demand among the top graduate employers (most targeted university in The Graduate Market in 2020 - High Fliers Research ). With a year-long industrial placement under your belt, you'll be well placed to take the next step - either into the workplace or towards further learning.
