THE CESI Summer School IN Paris

Aimed at French and international students who are studying engineering, the Summer School is a programme that immerses its participants right in the heart of sustainable construction issues in a smart city.

Its goal is to allow reflection, exchange and sharing among French and international students from all backgrounds on inputs related to themes such as BIM, Smart Cities, eco-neighbourhoods and decarbonation, in connection with sustainable development.

This Summer School will not only allow you to discover new approaches and technologies, but will also offer you conferences and practical work conducted by renowned experts in their field. Cultural visits to companies, laboratories and emblematic locations will complete the Programme.

Applicants who successfully conclude the Summer School will receive, after a project presentation, a certificate of achievement stating that they have obtained 4 ECTS credits.

A participation and attendance certificate will also be given at the end of the Programme.


This Summer School is an excellent way to share good practices among international participants to fight against environmental degradation.
