Engineering course content | Student status

With 60% of shared core courses, our Engineering program under student status leads to the same diploma, ESTP Engineering Degree (equivalent to a Master's degree) accredited by the French CTI (Commission des Titres d'Ingénieurs), recognised by the French government (Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation - MESRI) and listed in the ‘RNCP’ (the French National Register of professional certifications).

You will be trained to:

  • Design a “smart and sustainable city” by studying digital technologies and gaining an understanding of major environmental issues such as energy efficiency, the circular economy, multimodal transport, water and waste management. 

  • Build, equip and maintain all types of infrastructure or building with a focus on performance and longevity by addressing new lifestyle trends – connectivity, mobility, urban population growth, etc. – and their impacts.

  • Our pathways offer access to a variety of existing – and new – professions, which respond to the major challenges facing the construction sector today.

In-depth study of specific areas as part of each pathway will equip students for more targeted professional sectors.
