Placements are an essential part of future engineers' curriculum. For students, they represent a key stage in the construction of their professional project and in their preparation to work in industry.
Placements contribute to the implementation of the education given. In this way students can face the reality of working life and learn to understand corporate issues.
ENSIACET students (under student status) must complete three placements during their curriculum:
- a “first contact with the world of work” placement of 1 to 2 months in a company at the end of the first year (July and August),
- an “application” placement of 4 to 5 months in a company or in a research laboratory at the end of the second year (May, June, July, August and September),
- an “engineer” placement of 5 to 6 months in a company or in a laboratory according to the professional project at the end of the third year (from March to September).
At the end of the three years, each student must have experienced at least three months abroad and 28 weeks of placement in a company.
