About EIT InnoEnergy’s Career Impact Challenges

Organised by EIT InnoEnergy’s Career Centre during Enlit Europe, the EIT InnoEnergy Career Impact Challenges connect students with real-life energy projects of major European energy companies.
EIT innoenergy

EIT InnoEnergy is the sustainable energy engine of Europe. EIT InnoEnergy was founded in 2010 by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology with the mission of accelerating Europe’s energy transition. Nowadays, we bring together ideas, inventors, students and industry.

EIT InnoEnergy Master School is the go-to destination for current and aspiring sustainable energy engineers. All our programmes are double-degree two-location programmes which are offered at some of the highest-ranked technical universities and business schools across Europe. As a result, students are trained in innovation & entrepreneurship in addition to top engineering skills.

At the EIT InnoEnergy Career Centre, we provide expert professional support to ensure our talents make a smooth and empowered transition into the labour market. This is achieved through activities such as the Career Impact Programme (CIP). The Career Impact Programme is a 12-month professional development journey that is fully aligned with EIT InnoEnergy Master’s programmes.

Expertly designed to bring depth and context to the academic and technical work of our students, the Career Impact Programme is built on one-to-one coaching, dynamic interaction with industry experts, real-world exposure, and continuous, personalised feedback on our student’s progress. 

As a result, they develop:

  • A rock-solid understanding of industry requirements and the realities of working life
  • The practical skills and confidence to create value from day one
  • A road map to deliver significant and lasting impact across your future career.

 

The Career Impact Programme finishes with the EIT InnoEnergy Career Impact Challenges, where students put their learning into practice by solving real-life challenges.

Organised by EIT InnoEnergy’s Career Centre during Enlit Europe, the EIT InnoEnergy Career Impact Challenges connect students with real-life energy projects of major European energy companies. In this CIC-2020 compete with the brightest international student teams to conceive innovative sustainable solutions for the current challenges in the energy industry. The EIT InnoEnergy Career
