Integrated Undergraduate Course

Training for engineering career

The first year of the Integrated Undergraduate Course covers the fundamental notions as well as the specific prerequisites for the four specialties.

To support the engineering students in their schooling, many individual interviews are held to encourage them to perfect their working methods, their host company search and to support them in the building of their professional project.

The program is strongly based on experimentation, with the aim of introducing students to the school’s specialties and supporting them in their training project and the choice of a minor.

Specify the choice of your minor

For the integrated preparation, CESI invites the 2nd year students to choose among four minors.

The minor provides students in the preparatory years for engineering with the scientific and technical knowledge related to their future specialization and also prepares them to apply for the end-of-year internship (three months).

Undergraduate Course in Apprenticeship

The Undergraduate Course in apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to prepare in two years your admission to the school and/or to obtain a level 5 title (bac +2)Apprentices are supervised both by CESI and by their host company. They are supported at each stage of their progress. This CESI Undergraduate Course in apprenticeship gives a very hands-on approach and improves their chances of success.

The learning approach to make a difference

In the preparatory cycle for engineering apprenticeship, you share your time between your studies and your work within a company; a system that offers you a full sandwich course in engineering and a first rewarding professional experience.

A success-oriented work-study Undergraduate Course for engineers
