Chemical engineer
Graduates will find employment ranging from research and development, through the design, commissioning and management of the plant, to product marketing and technical services.
electrical and electronic engineer
The degree provides a broad education as well as an appropriate measure of specialisation in Advanced Electronic, Electrical and Computer Systems. Graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects throughout the industry, financial organisations, government and the professions and are well qualified to join research teams.
mechanical engineer
Many engineers make their careers in established areas, perhaps in the infrastructure industries of energy and transportation or the design and manufacture of advanced equipment. Others find rewarding careers meeting the challenges of applying new materials and intelligent systems to products and manufacturing processes.
Civil Engineer
Civil engineers face real-world challenges as they are responsible for creating, improving and protecting our immediate environment. They plan and oversee construction and rebuilding, as well as the maintenance of roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, dams, harbors, power plants, and airports.
