TEK's annual studies
Labour market survey
TEK annually conducts a labour market survey for our members. This survey provides information on such matters as the composition of TEK’s membership, how the members are placed within the job market, how they are paid, how their salaries are developing and what their working hours are. The goal is to gain reliable and current information on the status of TEK members for lobbying and social influencing purposes. The data gained from the survey is also utilised in member services such as salary counselling and the Salary Surveyor.
TEK and Finnish universities in technology carry out a yearly feedback survey for academic engineers and architects at the time of their graduation. The feedback data and the results are widely utilized by the universities in developing the education in engineering and architecture, as well as by TEK in influencing the educational policy making.
TEK is responsible for coordinating the data collection process and infrastructure, and the universities are responsible for reaching their new graduates with the TEK Graduate Survey. TEK Graduate Survey is directed by the steering group, which consists of representatives of every participating university and TEK.
TEK's Student Survey provides information on students' employment, career expectations and attitudes towards work life. TEK's salary recommendations for internship and thesis work are determined based on the survey results.
The target group of the Student Survey includes all TEK student members (except those who have started their studies during the same year). The survey focuses on students’ summer jobs and working alongside studies as well as their wellbeing. The survey also has a changing theme.
