                                    ★★ career prospects are excellent – past graduates have
                                        gone on to work for accenture, Xerox, iBM, Kodak,
                                        Pricewaterhousecoopers and British aerospace.

                                        meaning you can maintain a broad-based approach or
                                        specialise in a particular area of interest.
the biggest challenge i faced
was finding a placement during
the economic downturn. the
Placement and Careers Centre at
Brunel was very supportive, so i    cOurses at a Glance

also able to get valuable career
advice from the CeO and other
Directors across the company,
which has helped me to set new
career goals.

As a student representative
for the maths department, i
found that issues were dealt
with quickly and professionally.
the lecturers make time to see
you when you need advice on
a module, but at the same time
help you to think on your feet.
