Young Graduate 2020-2022

Naouel Cherif completed the 2 years Young Graduate Program and started a new role as a Production Engineer Maintenance at Prothya.

“This program lets you discover what you like and what you don’t like in a more practical field. After completing my 3 departments tour, I was able to know what I wanted to do. I chose to work in production because I identified more with the department and the team.” – Naouel Cherif



Clément de Schaetzen completed the program in its 20-22 edition and started a new role as a Process Engineer at Prothya.

“As a first experience, it is very difficult to directly know in which department you would like to work. This program will help you to orient yourself and to make the right choice later.” – Clément de Schaetzen
