Speed-meeting with ESGI students – work study program

This Thursday, September 16, 2021, will be the 4th and last 100% digital speed-meeting of the year for ESGI, the leading school for computer engineering.

For the first time this year, Novelis will be partnering the event to offer students support in their training through two IT work-study courses:

  • Design and development engineer
    Our design and development engineers are required to work on the implementation of new business functionalities on the products marketed by Novelis.
  • R&D / Innovation Engineer
    Our R&D / Innovation Engineers work in our R&D Laboratory on our “Smart-programming” research program. The objective of the program is to automatically and smartly transform a document in human language, such as specifications, into a final Web application ready to go into production.

The ESGI 2021 speed-meeting was attended by 45 companies, 70 work-study offers and 350 participants for all 9 specialization streams.

“The speed meeting is a great event for both students and companies. It is an opportunity for them to transform opportunities into a work-study program with one of our partner companies. They appreciate this type of session because it confronts them with what can be done in the world of work, but also the organization of the Corporate Relations Officers to coordinate everything. These days are a win-win situation for both students and companies.”

Mickaël Zamord – Corporate Relations Officer and Head of the Artificial Intelligence and Big Data stream at ESGI.

During this half-day event, Amine Bentahir (Head of Growth & Development) and Walid Dahhane (CTO) will be present to meet with engineering students from the different streams.

The objective is to exchange with these future IT geniuses and to share with them the different opportunities we offer within the company. This speed-meeting format with express interviews in 15 minutes allows students to get past the CV barrier and to quickly expose their skills and know-how.

A few words about the school

ESGI prepares its students for all IT professions through its 9 specializations:

  • Artificial Intelligence and Big Data
  • Computer security
  • Systems, networks and cloud computing
  • Management and consulting in information systems
  • Software architecture
  • Mobility and connected objects
  • Web, blockchain, 3D & video game engineering

ESGI’s company relations department assists students on a daily basis in their search for a work-study program and in their professional development. This is an important and dear element to Novelis because we are committed to developing the skills of the students we take on.

We have developed a broad pyramid of skills, with a level of excellence recognized on the market. We offer various certification courses (Appache Kafka, ABBYY FlexiCapture, scrum…) to help all our employees improve their skills.

We make sure to accompany our students in their evolution on subjects around architecture, technical expertise, Machine Learning and data analysis alongside experienced technical managers. We offer them the opportunity to work on customer projects to enable them to put into practice the knowledge they have acquired in the field.

And that’s not the only thing we have in common with ESGI. The school is also equipped with numerous laboratories and is built on a very close relationship with the business world. We also have our own internal research laboratory, in partnership with the Ecole Polytechnique de Paris, where our PhDs are currently working on fundamental research on AI and NLP.
