A way to employment

The IBM partnership to better publicise the internships and careers opportunities to the students. Thus, in 2014, three 5th year GEI students in Software engineering had the opportunity to do their graduation project placement at IBM. Despite the restricted plan for hiring regarding IBM France, the three students were offered a job. The convergence of good candidates and good subjects makes it possible to facilitate access to the labour market, and feeds industry-engineering school collaborations.
