Engineer to Engineer

Engineer to Engineer is a project that aims to create a labor market with equal opportunities for everyone. It creates a platform that enables newly arrived professionals to network and gain the necessary tools to enter the Swedish labor market



Among the refugees that arrive in Sweden, there are many qualified engineers and scientists whose academic expertise is not fully used in the labour market. Engineer to Engineer creates a platform where recently arrived engineers and scientists can network and exchange experiences with working professionals in Sweden. This aims to give the participants a possibility to a fast integration into the Swedish society. At the same time, we provide Swedish companies with professional expertise.

We connect progressive companies with engineers and scientists with a refugee background through different events. Engineer to Engineer arranges recruitment fairs, CV workshops, interview training, case events and provides a platform for professional networking between engineers and scientists from different geographical backgrounds.

If you are interested in participating in any way, don’t hesitate to contact We are always looking for companies interested in connecting with qualified engineers as well as refugees interested in our initiatives.
