Engineering in general is a creative discipline that also requires advanced technical skills which are generously rewarded; graduate electrical engineers are highly sought after, typically command high salaries, and are often involved in cutting-edge projects. Entry-level graduate engineers tend to earn salaries around £20,000-£30,000, with experienced chartered engineers able to earn up to £70,000.
The UK energy industry adds a net value to the economy of more than £15 billion per year with electricity sales alone amounting to around £100 million per day. Key players in this industry range from large national grid operators to regional distribution and power generation companies. Meeting the challenges of using renewable energy to reduce the problems of climate change means that there has never been a more exciting time to be involved in the power and related applications industry. With power electronic devices becoming more powerful and more widely used, the challenges associated will require engineers to create innovative engineering solutions to difficult problems. Career prospects for the coming decades are thus excellent in this growing sector.
