The technological bachelor, a sought-after diploma
For these profiles, the bulk of future recruitments over the next 12 months will be in companies with more than 200 people. And more particularly in the production, an area directly impacted by recent record contracts which, to keep up with the pace to come, must quickly compensate for its numerous retirements.
Other highly sought-after candidates, holders of technological bachelors are sought after by 63% of companies in the sector. “These three-year training courses, which for example train assistant engineers or production unit managers, have been very successful in SMEs and abroad,” says Francis Pollet, CEO of Ipsa.
Drones, a sector of the future
In the longer term, we must focus on the drone industry, which is booming in agriculture and defense, and still popular with the general public. 53% of aeronautical professionals believe that these flying toys will be the most job-creating technology in the future, ahead of artificial intelligence (42%), electric aircraft (39%) and big data ( 37%).
