François STEPHAN, General Manager of ECE, specifies it: “one of the great specificities of the profiles sought in engineering, are hybrid profiles”. Knowing how to combine the dimensions of geopolitics, management, business, etc. is increasingly important.
Identify promising professions
The health crisis linked to covid-19 has profoundly changed the world of work. If some professions are disappearing or working at a slower pace, other sectors are even more promising. François STEPHAN confirms this: “Engineering is now clearly everywhere: data, telecoms, virtual reality, augmented reality, systems engineering, software engineering, data science, etc.”. New jobs are emerging with the digitalization of the industry.

Develop your soft skills
“What I wouldhave liked to have been told is that you really have to sit down and think about what you want to do in life. Victoria MANDEFIELD says that as a student you don’t necessarily take the time to think about your professional future. Often out of fear. It is extremely important to ask the right questions in order to take the right direction.
