Our graduates do not just have the essential core skills but have also learned how to adapt to technological change, with its challenges and opportunities. Part of how we ensure this is by liaising with industry, from cutting edge start-ups to multinational household names. The result is that Imperial's Computing graduates are some of the most sought-after worldwide and attract the highest average starting salaries for Computing in the UK.
A career in Computing opens the door to a wide range of careers. Roles span technical innovation, management, analysis, consultancy, training and research in many industry sectors. We have close relationships with many of the major employers of Computing graduates below - not only software and communications companies but also financial companies.
As a result of these links, it is quite common for students to be given permanent job offers, in advance of graduation, on the basis of an internship or industrial placement. Many of our graduates, though, go on to work for smaller IT companies and many have started their own businesses. Some go into management consulting or enter the accountancy profession, where a good knowledge of Computing can be an advantage; others take up careers in corporate strategy and marketing or as business analysts in investment banks.
