A few words from past year’s graduates

Empatica's graduate program is the best option for those who are eager to explore different engineering fields and tackle difficult challenges. It also provides an opportunity to discover which are the key components of a health monitoring platform.

Massimo 2022 Grad

Being a part of Empatica's engineering graduate program is an incredible privilege! It has provided me with the opportunity to learn and enhance my technical skills beyond my imagination. Additionally, it's fascinating to observe how managers from various teams approach their work in distinct ways.

Teo 2022 Grad

Being part of Empatica’s Engineering Graduate Program is one of the most challenging and formative experiences I have ever had.

Giulia 2021 Grad

I’ll definitely recommend this program to everyone who wants to go into the professional world and still doesn’t know what engineers do in the real world, or what they want to become; to everyone that is very curious and ready to learn, and to those who like changes and love to be dynamic.

Vania 2021 Grad

I like the Graduate Program because I have the opportunity to learn many technical skills from different software areas; from completely new knowledge to improving the knowledge that I already had. It also helped me have a deeper look at how all teams involved in the development of a product work together.
