In order to meet the major societal challenges of combating climate change and ensuring energy sovereignty, both parties are committed to making the nuclear sector attractive to future engineers, sharing their expertise and promoting the development of skills.

More than 60 students this year have chosen the nuclear sector, which is the third most promising industrial sector in France, with forecasts for the recruitment of 4,000 engineers per year.
Over the last three years at IMT Atlantique (source: CGE 1st job survey), despite the health crisis, 13 graduates have been recruited and an average of 5 interns have been taken on per year at Framatome.
