According to the latest job placement survey of top-tier French universities (by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles), nearly 80% of the Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma Class of 2011 was employed (including PhD research assignments) two months after graduation, at an average salary of nearly €35,000. 40% of the jobs were in the Rhône-Alpes region, 20% in the Paris-Île-de-France region, and 15% outside France—including half in Switzerland and Germany.
Nearly a third of graduates got job offers pursuant to their senior-year research projects. The top-hiring industries were IT and energy.
A third of the Class of 2011—like those of 2009 and 2010—went on into a PhD program; a relatively high percentage that sets Phelma apart from most other French engineering schools.
