- Job placement in Bsc. year
The overarching objective of this work placement is to help students, whether through manual labor or office work, to discover how an organization work and hierarchical relationships between managers and their teams . To be carried out at the end of 3rd year this non managerial practical work placement is to last at least 4 weeks. During this time
students are expected to fully integrate a working team in which their student-engineer status is to be ignored.
- Professional internship in M1 year
This internship aims at giving the student first hand experience of the many facettes of the profession. This entails the intern being fully integrated into a team while fulfilling a technical task. This task should match what is expected of an engineer starting out on their career. Besides this production, the intern is expected to analyse and present a report on the social relations within the organisation.
- Final year project in Msc year
The three year curriculum culminates in a mission in companies, local authorities, public institutions, state departments or laboratories. Students are expected to carry out a high level scientific, technical and methodological study. Where possible this study should be within the bounds of an existing project. This study leads to a written thesis and vivo.
This project is a veritable recrutement gateway: over the last 5 years, and on average, 50% of private sector engineers were recruted following their final year project.
- Employment offers for trainee engineers, recently graduated engineers and experienced engineers
These job offers cover all types of contracts lasting over 3 months including Voluntary Service Overseas (VIE).
