More than 300 students from Tecnunthe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, are participating in the XXVIII edition of the Employment Forum, organized in classroom and virtual format between today and tomorrow. Students of the last years of engineering are these days conducting 1,200 interviews with the 80 participating companies. It should be noted that many of the interviews are taking place face-to-face, after setting up an appointment reservation system and spaces conditioned according to covid-19 protocols.
The objective of the Forum, organized by the External Relations Service of Tecnun together with the Career Services Service of the University of Navarra, is to promote the employability of students in the final years of their bachelor's and master's degrees.
Javier Ganuza, director of the External Relations Service at Tecnun, points out that "students at Tecnun tend to have an average of 2 to 3 job offers when they finish their studies". He also states that 103 students carried out their final project in companies participating in the forum last year and 57 of them did internships.
The companies at this year's Employment Forum come from engineering, industry, automotive, aeronautics, rail, biomedical, consulting, banking and research sectors, such as CAF, Irizar, Danobat Group, Orona, Siemens Health, BBVA, PWC, IDOM, Altran, Telefónica, Amazon, ISS, Deloitte and Iberdrola.
Several start-ups have also participated, represented through Innovation Factory, the entrepreneurship center of the University of Navarra: ALOR, Deneb Medical, LINQcase and Tagenea.
In addition, the School organized two other employment days this year: one on Consulting and Banking, open to students in their final years, and another, at the end of the year, aimed at students of the master's degrees in Industrial Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Telecommunications. A total of twenty companies and more than one hundred students participated. It should be noted that next year Tecnun will expand its range of master's degrees with the launch of the Master's Degree in Artificial Intelligence at the San Sebastian campus and the Master's Degree in Technological Innovation at the Madrid campus of the University of Navarra.
