Engineering degree in Electronics and Electrical Energy Systems

We train electronics engineers who are capable of conceiving, developing and following the manufacturing of components, circuits and electronic systems, with the ability to minimise and make the best use of our electrical energy. The training focuses on a project-oriented pedagogy which includes learning about-and-through research.
  • Objectives

Once they have graduated, our engineers become production as well as research and development engineers in electronics and micro-electronics companies and manufactures. The industrial culture of our school also prepares them for working in maintenance and quality departments. Those who wish can also prepare a PhD whilst using their technological skills in a company via a research convention CIFRE.

  • Contents or models of training

The subjects are taught by teachers and researchers in electronics and power microelectronics working in close relation with international industries such as STMicroelectronics, Faiveley or Saft Power Systems. The subjects related to the thermo-mechanical reliability of components, to renewable energies (wind and hydroelectricity) are taught by teachers-and-researchers from the mechanical domain.

The student engineers enjoy an open and efficient industrial and research environment relying on a number of companies which are part of the competitive cluster Science and Electrical Energy Systems (S2E2) as well as other research centres and teams (CERTEM, CERER, GREMAN …).

Main themes:

- Electronics
- Physical properties of materials
- Electrical energy conversion
- Technology and design of microelectronic components
- Automatic control and signal processing
- Mathematics and information processing
- Engineering methods
- Technology of power microelectronics
- Renewable energy and environment

Other subjects including human, economic and social sciences as well as law and English complete the training course.

A pedagogy based on projects has a key role in the curriculum. They are the first step towards research and innovation for future engineers. 

Internships (third, fourth and fifth year) complement the curriculum and can be taken in companies in the domain either in France or abroad.
