  • Keywords
    Development, Civil engineering, Off-shore, Energy, Water, Transports, Networks, Service.
  • Aims
    Training of general-purpose engineers capable of working in very varied professions, ranging from a vast expanding field, from regional development to civil engineering and from energy to the services sector having an impact on most of the planet (developed countries to developing countries) thanks to their employers who export the bulk of their production.
    Our engineers have a multi-cultural approach to management and have reached or aim at world leadership in their specialization.
  • Tuition
    • The first 13 weeks are devoted to acquiring extensive knowledge of fundamental science and technology pertaining to the field (50% of the timetable), alternating with techniques and methods of design and implementation (25%) and site visits (25%). Tuition provides for widespread use of examples, projects, case studies etc.
    • Throughout the next 9 weeks students are required to dedicate approximately 60% of their time to 4 elective modules which will enable them to study two high-tech applications and two projects chosen among the complementary fields. For each of these modules students will be divided into two groups (8 open modules) or three groups (12 open modules) depending on the number of those enrolled. Each module will be supervised by tutors. The remainder of the timetable will be devoted to methods accompanying the projects.
    • The final week is dedicated to a study trip enabling students to visit great export achievements of French firms abroad. (South East Asia, Australia and the Indian Ocean were among recent destinations for this field trip).
    All teachers on this course are professionals or researchers who apply, constantly update and adapt their expertise in science and technology and methods and behaviour derived from their main professional activity.
