Becoming an engineer requires solid scientific, technical and operational knowledge as well as human qualities. The ESITC Paris curriculum was created and modeled with and for the profession. It combines high-standards education in perfect harmony with a constantly evolving professional world.
The experience of the Worker internship at the end of the first year allows the student to discover the professional sector of Construction and more specifically construction sites and to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the year.
The engineering cycle lasts 3 years and allows the deepening of technological, management and communication subjects. Three important internships by their duration and their purpose punctuate this cycle. It is during the 2nd cycle that students should consider leaving for a compulsory semester abroad, either as an internship or in a foreign university: a unique experience that is very rewarding for the student's maturity. -engineer. After having followed all the courses, it is also during this cycle, at the end of the 4th year, that the engineering students choose their specialty: Building or Roads & Structures before starting their last year of the course. The 5th and final year is structured around two highlights. The acquisition of the latest theoretical skills with the End of Studies Project (PFE) and the internship lasting at least 4 months allowing 92.5% of our students to be hired s within 2 months of graduation.
For the last year of teaching, several possibilities are offered to students
♦ A year at school
For the last year, the highlight before graduation, two specialties are offered: Building and Roads & Works of Art. The 5th year begins with an academic semester at the school in order to perfect the teaching of engineering students and to carry out in groups, depending on the chosen specialty, a transversal End of Studies Project (PFE) lasting six month. This project is the subject of an oral defense before a Jury made up of the school management, teachers and business managers. The course set up in the last year by ESITC Paris is a benchmark in terms of pedagogy, given the skills that the transversal project brings to future engineers before entering professional life. In February, engineering students join a company to do their End of Studies Work (TFE), an internship of at least 4 months between February and July. It is devoted to a study (of price, technique or quality, without this list being exhaustive) answering a professional problem of the company. The project is monitored jointly by a school teacher and a company engineer. The quality of this experience is validated by the submission of a report and also an oral defense before a Jury made up of the school management, the teacher and representatives of the host company.
→ The Building project : Students receive architectural plans for a building in paper and digital format. They must design the project taking into account the technical constraints imposed and precise specifications. Based on their in-depth scientific and technical knowledge acquired, they are asked to plan and organize the entire site from its design to its theoretical realization with the study of the interactions of the various trades, the calculation structures and quantities, the evaluation of the price and methods of execution, etc.
This project is developed and followed by professors specializing in each of the required skill areas.
→ The Roads and Structures Project :The engineering students receive the topographic data of an existing site via a computer base.Equipped with this base, they must, like their fellow students in the Building specialty, design the project by defining a road layout, by organizing and securing the road site as well as by designing an engineering structure according to the topographical constraints imposed.
This project is prepared and supported by teachers belonging to specialized business services or the Ministry of Transport attached to the Ministry of Ecological & Solidarity Transition. The project report is also the subject of a defense before a Jury made up of the management of ESITC Paris, professors and professionals from the sector.
♦ A year in a french partner school
Students can apply for their final year at ESTP, or at ESITCs in Caen or Metz, which offer the same options as at school, but treated differently. This request must be justified and be the subject of a study by the various school administrations. At the end of the 5th year, engineering students can also follow an additional 4 month course at IAE Gustave Eiffel. This additional education allows them to obtain dual skills in Engineering and Business Management.
♦ One year in a foreign partner university
