If you’re considering an engineering Master’s degree in a French Grande Ecole, you want to weigh your options carefully. It is no secret that every young engineer aspires to land high-paying jobs, but not all engineering degrees are worth the same. Here’s how much you can make with a Masters in Engineering from ESILV.
According to the 2020 First Employment survey, ESILV graduates with a Master’s in Engineering earn an average salary of 43 700 at the beginning of their career. Thus, the survey confirms the school’s performance in terms of the employability of its students recognised by worldwide companies. Here are few points to consider :
Average gross annual salary with bonuses
Salaries are slightly higher for jobs abroad, accounting for 20% of the 2019 class: €55,800 per year with bonuses for a first job abroad.
ESILV Master in Management employability rates
ESILV focuses on supporting students in their quest for internships, apprenticeships and first jobs. Thus, nearly 46% of respondents from the 2019 class were hired following their final internship. During their 5-year engineering program, ESILV students spend 13 months doing internships in companies.
70% signed their contract before graduation, 15% only two months after their graduation. 92% of the hires were permanent, a strong indicator of 2019 graduates’ potential.
Careers in Engineering in France and abroad
The vast majority of engineering graduates are hired by companies in the Paris region (75%), though there is still an essential international flavour.
In 2020, 20% of recruits were hired abroad, with an average annual salary of 55,800 euros (including bonuses). 55% of all graduates have an international function.
Therefore, these figures illustrate how important it is for engineers to have a good command of languages, mainly English, for their first job. English courses are compulsory throughout the engineering school curriculum, and the entire 4th year of the program is conducted in English.
Job openings and positions after a Master in Engineering
98% of the 2019 graduates have a managerial status as soon as they are hired. 60% of them are in charge of a project, 20% of a team.
These metrics once again show the high employability potential of these young engineers, who are well qualified and able to respond immediately to companies’ needs.
20% of respondents hold a position in financial engineering, 27% in IT. 15% are working in consulting and advisory services, 14% in energy and 11% in the transport industry.
