The international polling firm Universum, specialized in employer brand surveys, has published its 2017 ranking of the most attractive companies in France for engineering students.

Safran inspires budding engineers more than ever!

Out of the 16,036 engineering students polled, 13.67% voted for Safran. The Group is now ranked 4th in this survey, one spot higher than in 2016*. Innovation is of course a priority for these budding engineers, but the 2017 survey also shows that the working environment is critical when they choose their future employer. These students want a good atmosphere at work, and they also want assignments with meaning.

The latest Universum ranking also spotlighted the renewed attractiveness of French companies for these future engineers. The aerospace and digital sectors continue to be the great favorites.
