FISITA is passionate about supporting students and industry through a wealth of worldwide initiatives and opportunities. We organise international technical events such as EuroBrake and the World Automotive
Congress to connecting students, industry and academia - we facilitate networking opportunities at these events through competitions such as the EuroBrake Student Innovation Competition, Student Congress, Travelling Fellowship and the Islands of Excellence.
The FISITA Work Experience Programme has been developed to facilitate students from our Member Societies take part in industry placements. Our newly formed Academic Advisory Board is made up of education experts from around the world to collaborate with industry executives to ensure students are ‘work-ready’ and educated in a way that meets industry needs. We are committed to supporting engineering students entering industry with relevant business skills and ensure automotive mobility organisations share information about their workforce requirements.
Take a look at our Automotive Diary over on fisita.com, which is full of international events that may be useful to attend.
Have you attended or spoken at an event recently? e.g. Formula Student, EuroBrake or one of our Member Societies events. Tell us about it and we could feature you in one of our monthly e-newsletters
Discuss the recent event you attended on the discussion forum and talk to other students and those in the industry about your experiences.
These are just some of the events around the world coming up, if you know of any more please get in touch and we'll add them to the list.
An engineering degree, in any capacity, can open up a number of career possibilities around the world, which can include working in production, research and development, braking technology or emissions. You may discover during your studies that the electrical engineering takes your interest and you pursue a career in this area of automotive.
You could also consider going into academia or becoming an engineering educator - you could share your passion and knowledge for engineering
with others and support them on their journey; or perhaps your passion lies in Formula 1 and the adrenaline buzz that surrounds it. Whatever engineering path you choose, enjoy the journey and keep striving to be the engineer of tomorrow.
