Engineer - specialization Industrial IT, through apprenticeship, in partnership with the Institute for Industrial Engineering Techniques Centre Region (ITII Centre)

The industrial IT apprenticeship programme trains engineers to invent, design, control and manage all or part of embedded IT projects, regardless of the size, complexity or technicity, at all levels, including international. Students are, by vocation, scientists, but also project leaders who may rapidly become project directors.

  • Aims:
Professionals of this sector carry out their activity in departments related to technical engineering, studies and consultancy, IT and electronic system design, production, operations, maintenance, testing, quality, security, R&D, further education and public research. The main related activity sectors are: Industrial IT, IT and electronic hardware, telecommunications (services), embedded IT solutions, research.

  • Contents :
Choosing to learn through an apprenticeship means choosing an alternative training path that leads to a professional qualification. For the three years of the course, students are employed by a company and also take part in theoretical classes in the school.

  • Work/Study rhythm:
3rd year: 2 weeks in-company and 2 weeks in school
4th year: 2 months in-company and 2 months in school
5th year: 4 months in-school and 7 months in-company

  • Themes:
- Mathematics, modelling, simulation, signal processing
- Information technology: embedded development, networks, languages, embedded systems and real-time
- Electronics: electronic functions, programmable components, sensors, automation and monitoring
- Project management: managing projects, embedded system constraints
- Option:
- Smart transport
- Smart habitat

And finally, a common teaching base in humanities, economic, legal and social sciences (SHEJS - Sciences Humaines Economiques Juridiques et Sociales) and in English completes the course.
Project pedagogy is a key factor of the programme. The projects are also used as a means for introducing research and innovation to future engineers.

  • Prerequisites:
Admission is based on 3 steps:
1- Application, to be downloaded from the Polytech Tours website, completed and returned before Friday 13 April 2012
2- Once the application has been appraised, selected applicants are invited for an interview, which will be held in May. The jury then decides if the applicant is “admissible” or not.
3- Enrolment for the course is validated exclusively when the admissible student signs an apprenticeship employment agreement with a company (for September 2012).
