We've got these Tech jobs you can apply for now, and this list of companies who are currently hiring STEM grads, to prove it. 

But which universities have the best reputation amongst employers for their Engineering and Technology courses? 

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017 have been released - rating universities across the world in 46 individual subject areas. The rankings evaluate university courses overall using several factors, one of which is "Employer Reputation". 


They surveyed graduate employers across the world, receiving over 40,000 responses, to find out which courses have the highest employability rating. 


From their findings, we can see the top UK universities to study Engineering and Technology - based on how positively employers view them for that specific subject area.
