What can I do with my degree?
It can be hard to know what you’d like to do after you graduate. Not everyone wants to pursue employment in their field of study and not all degree programmes lead to specific careers after graduation. A degree at Imperial will, however, prepare you for a wide range of possibilities.
A good starting point for exploring your options is to check out what Imperial graduates have gone on to do. Next, check departmental websites for careers information and alumni profiles; for example Department of Computing Career Prospects - many have password protected careers resources accessible only to Imperial students via Blackboard or other virtual learning environments specific to the academic area. In addition there are two national resources that may provide useful information to help you consider your options with your degree:
