Starting in your first year (equivalent to last year of BSc), you can choose from several variations of the common core courses, to adapt to your profile. You also have choices regarding a variety of projects carried out in a collaborative environment. The internship and engineering passport activities allow you to experience different facets of engineering professions and their contexts. This first year is also an opportunity to decide what to specialise in.

In second and third year ( equivalent to MSc 1 and 2), a choice of two specialisations, projects (innovation, entrepreneurship, research etc.), internships and study abroad experiences allow you to progressively tailor your programme to your career goals. A broad spectrum, autonomy and flexibility are the key words of this course, which will help you develop into a high-level engineer known for:

  • your scientific and technical aptitude
  • your systemic understanding of social issues
  • your capacity for entrepeneurship and seeing things in perspective
  • your grasp of collaborative working, both in e-networks and remotely
  • your intercultural know-how and interpersonal skills
  • your sense of responsibility

A minimum of nine months of internships, spread out over three years of study, will help you not only to reinforce your career project, but also to use your newly acquired skills in a professional environment.
