Employability is understandably one of the most important factors for university students. EIT InnoEnergy Master School graduates already had an exemplary employment rate within six months of graduation; however, the latest numbers (from students that graduated in the Fall of 2019) show an impressive rate of 94% – an increase of 2% over the previous year!
Not only has employment increased, but the impact of the Master School in Europe’s energy transition is becoming more exponential – as more graduates choose a career in Europe after graduation. The most recent research shows that 77% of all graduates are placed in Europe (an increase of 5% versus 2020) with Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, France and Sweden being the most popular countries. And increasing key performance indicators is nothing new for EIT InnoEnergy, having doubled the number of female participants in their programmes (currently 30%) since their inception 10 years ago.
As all of these numbers continue to rise, it’s clear that students are receiving the support they need and valuable access to the European energy industry. One of the primary ways this is achieved is through the EIT InnoEnergy Career Centre. Their many activities are geared towards assisting students finding jobs and internships, now even more relevant due to the challenges presented by COVID-19.
