Industry events

Industry events

A key part of EEC Futures work is educating students about the industry through technical presentations, site visits and recruitment master classes.

Our wide ranging Uncovered Series brings four technical employers in each event to talk about the projects they are involved in, the latest innovations and the challenges facing their sector. Employers involved in the Uncovered Series include Mclaren, Intel, BMW and Rolls-Royce.

We host a range of industry-leading events and provide opportunities for students to visit key employers. Recent visits have included HP, Vauxhall, Nissan and Thales.

EEC Futures also holds a popular Careers Fair which is free for employees: last year over 1000 students attended.

The thing that impressed me the most was that they were all clear about what they want to do and what they want from an employer.

Robert James, IBM

It is always a pleasure to work with the EEC Futures team at Coventry University. They work hard to connect us with good quality candidates for placements or graduate positions. I am looking forward to a continued relationship with them.

Steve Cutler, Intel

The service provided EEC Futures was the best we received out of the circa 20 universities we advertise our roles with each year. The team made the effort to contact me and arrange a visit in order to understand further our business and requirements. The team were always approachable and found that they were willing to go the extra mile.
