Scholarships and employment

Via our Placements Program for last-year students, most of our students get a job well in advance of finishing their degree.

As a gradual transition to the professional world, last-year students of all degree courses will complete their training through Placements.

Conscious of the importance of this first job for our students, the School has created a network of associated companies in which our graduates must complete their training by working in top-class IT projects.

The complete list of the companies we have an agreement with can be found in the Placements section..


Companies interested in receiving students from the School of Computing Engineering for a work placement can sign an agreement with the University and register in the centralized computer application for the management of the placement offers. This application is available here, moreover you can find additional information about the different employment measures for students in the University of Oviedo here and here.

The placement will be for a time period of up to six months and for a maximum of 25 hours a week.

The company can decide the remuneration it offers to the students (always above cero euros). Once the company has registered in the application, it must enter the placement offers. During the placement period, the companies need not formalize social security for the students, as they will be covered by the school insurance or by an insurance policy contracted for this purpose by the University.
