A hell of a lot. Engineers are in high demand - chemical engineers especially. Chemical engineers typically earn more than any other kind of engineer. The pay can spiral up to 6-figure amounts.

A benefit is that unlike in other fields, a postgraduate degree is not *essential* to climb the ladder and earn stackloads, although it does help a lot.

And having 'Cantab' after your name should surely help!

I imagine pretty much similar to Cambridge pay because their courses are so respected and the uni's rep is so fantastic. Plus its links w/ industry are impressive.

Have you got an offer to read Chem Eng at Cambridge?

25% of Cambridge Chem Eng graduates go to work in the city so I imagine they would get payed quite a lot.

Average pay for a chartered Chem Eng is £54,000.

Highest pay for a chartered Chem Eng is £930,000.

I very much doubt that's straight out of uni, that's either somebodies own company or they're a highly decorated CEO.

You can apply for chartered engineer more or less straight out of Cambridge University, maybe you have to work around 6 months first to be eligable. My point stands.

IC is the best according to out of date assessments, they're the only one to have 5*.

In terms of other out of date teaching assessments, Cambridge/Oxford/IC/Umist/Bath are all in the same league.

I'd prefer IC personally though, not sure about you matouwah!

Teaching assesments are marked out of 24 or given an excellent/acceptable grade. 5* is a research assessment grade and is from 2001 and far from out of date, and both Birmingham and UCL achieved a 5* for chem eng as well as Imp: http://www.hero.ac.uk/rae/rae_dynami...yuoa/uoa27.htm.
They are out of date though, and yes I wasn't very thorough with the info... but this isn't a very thorough post where people are going to select their degree on after pay.

well imperial is the only place i applied for chem engineering...so if i wanna do it...i guess its my only option....offer is sure to be either first choice or insurance as it was only BBB (probably an indication that no one wants to do chemical engineering anymore.....i've heard its the hardest engineering course to do)

I thought Aeronautical Engineering was? Not that it matters, what matters more is that it's a highly employable degree and teaches you a vast array of skills. The fact that you have a low offer compared to IC's standards is great. Can you kick it?
