Never fear: Your first job is guaranteed after you graduate from the University of Southern Denmark

As an engineering student at University of Southern Denmark in Sønderborg, you are guaranteed your first job when you finish your Bachelor’s or Master’s Engineering studies. The skills and expertise that you will gain during your studies are so in-demand that employers are in desperate need of more graduates with an education from SDU. 

Local companies in Southern Denmark and the University of Southern Denmark have joined forces to create a unique “first job guarantee” scheme that offers new graduates 6-months employment, if they have not already landed their first job. The scheme goes into effect for students that start their BEng or MSc of Engineering degree at the Faculty of Engineering at SDU Sønderborg from September 2020.

How does this work?

Southern Denmark has a high concentration of companies specializing in energy-efficient technologies – important players, not only in Europe, but also on the global market. The demand for energy-efficient technologies and solutions is rising so rapidly that companies need more engineers in order to meet the demand. In fact, companies need more engineers than they can attract on their own. That is why the companies in Southern Denmark have joined forces with SDU Sønderborg, where engineering students are already acquiring the exact skills that these companies need.

Throughout your studies you will get in touch with and have direct exposure to local companies through Matchmaking Events, Business Lunches and various projects.This can only add to your network and knowledge, making SDU a clear winner when it comes to employment prospects.

To be considered for the scheme there are some simple eligibility criteria. Graduates need to show they have been engaged in a project with or have interned at a company; completed his or her education within the prescribed period of study; and possess knowledge of the Danish language equivalent to level B1. But looking at the class of 2020, those interested in the project were comfortably able to meet all requirements, and are now set to work in one of the most tech-forward countries in the world — and in high-skilled, well-paid and fulfilling jobs too!

At SDU Sønderborg, 75% of students are international. Don’t miss your chance to shape the Engineering world of the future! Learn more about SDU and explore the program options here.
