| Specific rhythm


To allow our student-apprentices to have a progressive and complete course, ESITC Paris has modeled and differentiated its curriculum by apprenticeship. It allows to acquire management and management skills, as well as a real knowledge of the professional world and the company. The alternation of 4 to 8 weeks of lessons and 4 to 8 weeks in a company allows concrete experience of the profession with the aim of training versatile engineers, mainly intended for the preparation, the management of construction sites or to occupy support functions. in technical studies offices

This type of contract makes it possible to combine theoretical training and practical experience within a company. Apprenticeship contracts can be signed with any type of construction company (majors, SMEs and medium-sized companies) provided that they can carry out all the themes within their main entity or in one of their subsidiary. The choice of option (or major) in Sustainable Building or Roads, Civil engineering & Territory Development depends on the company activity
