Common requirements for all engineering degree students

Core lectures in:

  • further science (maths, physics, statistics, computer science, …),
  • engineering science (mechanics, strength of materials, concrete & metal construction, hydraulics, geotechnics, topography, …)
  • management & cross-cultural communication (finance; accounting; law; social legislation; welfare and safety at work; quality assurance; English; …)

At least 2 practical training periods in a company during summer:

  • 1 month on-the-job worker training period at the end of the first year
  • 3 month professional training period as an assistant-engineer at the end of the second year.

A 5 month final overall project (thesis) during the last semester of studies.

A compulsory study or work abroad period:

  • In order to be awarded the degree, students have to carry out a 3 month study or work experience abroad. It may be one of the compulsory internships or a supplementary work experience or a study abroad period.
  • Language proficiency: all students must achieve upper B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in an official test of English. Foreign students from non French speaking countries must also achieve level B2 in an official test of French.

 

Specific lectures, according to the field of study

Building Engineering (Bâtiment)

The syllabus of this specialization is focused on the design and construction of buildings and related subjects such as maintenance, rehabilitation, urban & regional planning, architecture, sustainable housing, passive and energy-plus buildings, quantity surveying, real estate management, …

Third year specializations:  structural engineering / roads, bridges & tunnels / international engineering / nuclear civil engineering / sustainable buildings & cities / sustainable urban and regional planning / real estate development / construction & project approach.  

 

Public Works (Travaux publics)

 This syllabus deals mainly with construction projects for the public sector and public use: roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, transportation, infrastructures and also public buildings, airports etc.

Third year specializations: structural engineering / roads, bridges & tunnels / international engineering / nuclear civil engineering / sustainable buildings & cities / sustainable urban and regional planning.

 

Topography & Geomatics & Surveying Engineering (Topographie)

The classical training programme in topography for the land surveyor has been updated with cutting edge techniques, combining geographic information & computer science, laserscan, photogrammetry, GPS, etc. Graduates may become chartered land surveyors “géomètre expert” with legal prerogatives (after professional experience & training supervised by the “Ordre des Géomètres Experts”), work on construction sites, in real estate management, …

Third year specializations: structural engineering / roads, bridges & tunnels / international engineering / nuclear civil engineering / sustainable buildings & cities / sustainable urban and regional planning / real estate development / construction & project approach / property planning.

 

Mechanical-Electrical Engineering  Energy Efficiency (Génie Mécanique et Electrique -efficacité énergétique)

The ESTP specialization in mechanical-electrical engineering is closely linked to the construction industry: construction of industrial buildings & power plants, electrical equipment of dams, railways, construction site vehicles, new energies, energy supply networks, out-fitting of buildings, heating & ventilation, home-automation, ..

Third year specializations: structural engineering / roads, bridges & tunnels / international engineering / nuclear civil engineering / sustainable buildings & cities / sustainable urban and regional planning / real estate development / construction & project approach / energy efficiency in buildings.

 

Optional opportunities for an individualised syllabus

There are many opportunities for the engineering degree students to individualize their programme by following means:

  • Variety of last year specializations offered at the ESTP.
  • Large range of optional lectures, at the ESTP and at partner institutions such as Ecole des Ponts Paristech.
  • Optional second or third foreign languages : Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian.
  • Optional applied research & innovation projects.
  • Double degree “ingénieur-architecte” with French partner institutions “Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-la-Villette” (ENSAPLV) & Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture (ESA) (see paragraph below) with an extension of 2 years of the studies.
  • Double degree “ingénieur” with French partner institution Arts et Métiers Paristech with an extension of 1 year of the duration of studies.
  • Double degree “master by research” at French partner institutions such as Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6), Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, IFP School, …
  • Double degree “ MBA” with partner institution IAE Paris with an extension of 1 year of the duration of studies.
  • Double degree opportunities with French management schools EDHEC, ESSEC, HEC Entrepreneurs, Sciences Po.
  • Exchange year at a French partner institutions during the last year of the programme (INSTN, EIVP, ESITC Cachan, ENSG, Mines de Douai, …). Study abroad period (concerns 27% of the students) with many double degree opportunities (75% of the mobile students); see list of partner universities.

Double degree

“Diplôme d’ingénieur – Diplôme d’architecte (Master’s degree)”

 The ESTP has set up a double degree programme “ingénieur-architecte” with French partner institutions “Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-la-Villette” (ENSAPLV) and Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture (ESA). At the ESTP, this opportunity is offered to students of the specialization “building engineering”. They are selected at the beginning of the first year at the ESTP according to their academic records and professional motivation. Studies involve complementary lectures taken at ENSAPLV or ESA from the 1st year onwards. After the 3 year course at the ESTP, students have to take 2 more years at ENSAPLV or ESA to be awarded both degrees. In return, the ESTP welcomes selected architecture students from ENSAPLV and ESA for complementary lectures in maths & physics and engineering science subjects and for the final 2 years of the double degree programme. The total duration of studies in Higher Education for both student bodies is 7 years.
