If you scooped a graduate scheme place then you're on the right track.
Graduate schemes themselves are widespread throughout engineering firms, so there will certainly be something to fit in with your interests!
Will my degree do?
It probably won’t be too much of a shock to hear that engineering-related degrees are usually essential for the majority of graduate level engineering jobs.
Is postgraduate study necessary?
A Master’s degree in a specialist area of engineering, physics or mathematics can be considered a must for a lot of the top graduate roles in engineering, no matter which engineering discipline you want to head into. If you’ve got your beady eye on Chartered Engineer status, you’ll definitely need to obtain at least a Master’s degree, plus a minimum of postgraduate level.
While postgraduate qualifications aren't compulsory, they could make the difference in your applications.
