FAQ

Is EYE only for students or young professionals?
EYE is open to people from all walks of life, as long as you fall within our age limit and want to represent the voice of young engineers.
Is an engineering background mandatory?
Most of our volunteers have an engineering background, but we welcome all people who want to foster the voice of young engineers in Europe. As an NGO, we offer diverse work experiences, ranging from acquiring sponsorships to human development and marketing. With that being said, we welcome people from any background.
Do I have to be a citizen in Europe?
We welcome people of all nationalities. However, we advise that you are connected in some way to the European ecosystem. We have a large number of international students/ young professionals who have studied/are studying in European universities or work in Europe.
Is EYE only representing EU countries?
Absolutely not! As an example, we are represented in the UK, Switzerland, Norway and more! We strive to be present in all countries of the European Higher Education Area.
Are the positions paid?
No, all our initiatives are regarded as volunteer work. Whilst not compensated monetarily, EYE offers valuable opportunities and a broad international family across Europe.
Is everything going to be online?
Like most international organisations, the majority of our work takes place online. This also means that the commitment is much more flexible. However, we host a variety of on-site events, such as our conferences, and we encourage our members to meet up in-person. With an international network of volunteers, it is always great to be hosted across Europe!
I don’t think I am suitable for any of the listed positions. What should I do?
​If this is the case, we do have a variety of tasks that are not listed on our website. Please feel free to submit an open application then!
Do you have any fixed hours?
No. As a volunteer, we are aware that everybody has other commitments outside of EYEl. Hence, the workload is flexible
Can I apply for multiple positions?
Yes, you can apply for as many positions and departments as you want. We give volunteers the opportunity to explore different kinds of work, but we always advise against overworking from the start with different tasks.
