Research showed that a better understanding of the professional future and engineering identity had positive results for student learning and study choices, and for employability and job satisfaction. The PREFER model is a valuable instrument to create professional and self-awareness. It triggers reflection and understanding of what engineers do and what engineer one wants to be.

a more innovative role (focus on new edge ideas and products), a role focused on optimization (increasing efficiency and reliability) and a client-focused role (customer-tailored) were developed, regardless of the engineering discipline.
a set of professional (non-technical) competencies that industry requires to be successful in the different roles were identified in close collaboration with engineers and HR managers from SME's and large companies in different fields.
