At Coventry University, we realise that your professional life does not just suddenly materialise when you leave university, it requires planning, investment and direction. That is why the Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing provides a comprehensive package of support called EC Futures.

EC Futures involves a wide range of employer initiatives, course activities, professional guidance and technical work experience programmes to help students ultimately secure the right graduate role. We work closely with key industrial partners, such as TATA Technologies, Mott Macdonald, Jaguar Land Rover, GE Aviation, Cummins and Intel, to ensure that our students can develop in line with the requirements of business and can obtain the skills required to compete on the global stage.

The EC Futures team work very closely with academics to embed employability into the curriculum throughout the courses in the faculty.  All students complete a compulsory employability module of their choice in each year of their course through the Add+Vantage scheme. This can significantly add to the skill set developed through their degree course, as the scheme involves modules led by employers such as Jaguar Land Rover and IBM. As part of this module, students can choose to learn a language throughout the duration of their course from beginner through to advanced level.
