Well-trained graduates with skills in electronics design, software, telecommunications and engineering are in high demand. Some of our recent graduates are currently commanding high salaries working in government, the public sector and in private industry. In the latter sector, employers include Olympus, Oclaro, Corus, HSBC, Hewlett Packard, Oxford University, BAE Systems, Npower, Cogent Defence, Siemens, Orange, Vodafone, QinetiQ, National Grid, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Cars, Schlumberger and Microsoft.
