Engineer - specialization System Design and Mechanics

We provide students with system design and mechanics engineering training, which includes 4 free-choice options in the 5th year. A substantial part of the course is dedicated to project work and traineeships in companies throughout the world. Privileged partnerships with leading industrial groups mean that students have access to cutting-edge technologies.


  • Aims:

Our engineers are entrusted with project management responsibilities in businesses that are closely linked to industrial research and production system implementation and operation activities in a variety of sectors such as: aeronautics, automobile, the oil industry, energy production and distribution, construction, information technologies.


  • Contents or list of themes and subjects taught:

Course pedagogy focuses on a solid base of mechanics completed by generalist subjects that are fundamental for any engineer. To further develop their skills, our students may choose one of four options in their final year.

The course is run by teacher-researchers from the school and from the Laboratory of Applied Mechanics and Rheology (LMR). Students benefit from the equipment of the Centre for Study and Research of Cutting Tools (CEROC - Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches sur les Outils Coupants), the Centre for Study and Research of Elastomeric Materials (CERMEL - Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches sur les Matériaux Elastomères), the Centre for Study and Research of Renewable energies (CERER - Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches des Energies Renouvelables), etc.


The main themes addressed are:

- Fundamental mechanics

- Design and manufacturing

- Mathematics and information processing

- Methods for engineers

- System design

- Option:

                  - Advanced material mechanics

                  - Biomechanics

                  - Sensorial design

                  - Renewable energy and the environment


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.

And finally, the traineeships (years 3, 4 and 5) complete the training course. These traineeships take place in companies whose activities are related to the sector of studies, in France and abroad.
