Infocursos provides information on employability among recent graduates every year. Five Técnico courses hit a 0% unemployment rate. Architecture, Engineering Physics, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Telecommunications and Informatics, Computer Science and Engineering – Taguspark campus, are among the 68 courses with full employment rate.

Most Técnico courses have a 99% employment rate. Courses with an unemployment rate below 1%: Electrical and Computer Engineering (0.2%), Aerospace Engineering (0.5%), Industrial Engineering and Management (0.5%), Environmental Engineering (0.6%), and Electronics Engineering (0.6%) .Computer Science and Engineering – Alameda campus (0.7%), Mechanical Engineering (0.7%), Applied Mathematics and Computation (0.8%) and Materials Engineering (0.8%).

Biomedical Engineering (1.3%), Mining and Geological Engineering (1.5%), Civil Engineering (2.2%) Chemical Engineering (2.1%), Biological Engineering (2.8%).

The unemployment rate corresponds to the ratio between the number of recent graduates who are registered as unemployed and the total number of recent graduates of the course. A recent graduate, as the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education explains, “is a graduate student of the course in the reference period of 2014/15 – 2017/18” (academic year prior to data collection).
