    First jobs EES Students

    To great satisfaction of the EES staff nearly all graduates find a job soon after (or even before) graduation within the environment/energy sector.

    Graduates find employment in a wide variety of organisations and positions. Universities, energy companies, environmental consultancies, environmental NGO's, industry and government are typical first employers as can be seen from the Figure.

    This Figure is based on information on the first jobs of the graduates of the last three completed academic years.
