Each year, the Fédération performs a survey of its former students. In 2015, for the 23th edition of this survey, 8341 graduates from 2010 to 2014 of the 20 schools of the FGL were questioned. The rate of responses was about 60% which gave us a good idea of what has become of our engineers following their education.
Outcome of the different years
The rate of employment is very good overall. About 94% of the graduates are active: 89% have jobs and 5% are continuing their studies.
