Assessment Centres produce next year’s student group
09 Mar 2012 in The Network by David Ward
We have just completed our Assessment Centres at our Academic Partner universities (ETH Zürich, RWTH Aachen, Politecnico di Milano, Chalmers Gothenburg, UPC Barcelona, Trinity College Dublin, Loughborough UK, TU Delft). The standard of the candidates was generally high, making it a tough assignment for our Corporate Partner Assessors who, as usual, did a superb job in creating the space for candidates to show off their potential.
The Assessors selected 67 students as being appropriate for the UNITECH Programme in terms of their academic backgrounds, their professional potential and their personal aspirations.
Typical profiles among the students selected are:
- An MSc in Mechanical Engineering speaking Bulgarian, English and French who wants to work in a very practical environment
- An MSc in Mechanical Engineering speaking Italian, English and some Chinese who wants to work in international projects
- An MSc in Mechanical Engineering speaking Dutch, English, French, German and some Spanish who wants to work in production processes
- An MSc in Civil Structural and Environmental Engineering speaking English Irish and French who wants to work in a top engineering company on “day-to-day” engineering
- An MSc in Mechanical Engineering speaking Dutch, Persian, English and German who wants to work in industrial production
- An MSc in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering speaking English, French and Irish who wants to work at the juncture of technical and business aspects in a company
- An MSc in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering speaking English, Greek, Arabic and French who wants to work in production engineering
Now the allocation process is underway, and we are seeking to generate the best combination of student preference, academic fit and geographic balance in preparation for another great UNITECH year.
The UNITECH Student Group 2012/2013 will begin their one year programme in August of this year.
