The third-year profiles of the engineering course

“Engineering and design” profile

The Engineering and Design profile is aimed at students who wish to start their career in industry in a profession focusing on the study and design of products and systems, in response to a customer requirement, or in the execution of large projects. 

This profile is based on additional training in production systems as well as in project management. This project, running from September to March, helps to strengthen skills related to the design and development of a system by drawing on the scientific, technical, economic and organisational knowledge acquired during the education. The students, in teams, choose a subject in consultation with an industrial mentor. They define the specifications and develop a mainly technical study.

“Research and innovation” profile

This profile is for students wishing to start their career in research and development in business or in academia. It leads to further densifying their scientific background and attending additional courses within an M2 of IP Paris or a 3rd year at the Engineering School of IP Paris. In some cases, obtaining the M2 is possible.

“Entrepreneurship - Intrapreneurship” profile

This is the other end of the chain of innovation in the engineering professions. This profile is based on KITE, training in management and entrepreneurship focusing on the issue of innovation. The teaching is focused on re-examining the projects developed by the students, to reveal their potential for economic development.

Students choose to go further into the "entrepreneurship" or "management" aspects.
