According to Law 62/2007 of 10 September, which provides for the legal scheme of higher education institutions, in particular in its Article 162, No. 2, all HEIs should disclose accurate and sufficient information on the employability of their study cycles.
It is therefore recognized the importance of employability for higher education. In fact, and in IST’s case, getting a job is one of the most important factors for their students when they consider to enter higher education.
In this respect, and following the work developed so far by the IST on the professional path of its graduates, this website officializes the birth of a regular observation structure of the employment situation of the IST graduates.
Ultimately, the OEIST (Observatory for Employability of the Instituto Superior Técnico) aims to promote graduate employability through the systematization and analysis of all the information that, directly or indirectly, has to do with its graduates’ path. The whole process will materialize into the constitution of a series of information that can be updated on a yearly basis, which will allow for getting more reliable recurrent data series.
