Internship

Mandatory

Internship abroad

Possible

Work experience periods punctuate the three years spent in the school:

  • Discovery internship in a company at the end of the3rd year during the summer (1 month minimum) to discover the professional world.
  • Internships in companies
    • The4th year concludes with a student-engineer internship, carried out during the summer (2 months minimum) within a company.
    • In the5th year, after the completion of the industrial project, students do an engineering internship (minimum 5 months) in a company, in France or abroad.
  • In grade5, students with a suitable profile can :

    • complete a 12-month professional contract within a company. The professional contract includes the completion of an industrial project and an internship in a company.
    • follow a professional master's degree or a research master's degree in parallel with their course at Polytech, in certain partner university departments (AES at the University of Montpellier).

    In the4th and5th years, they carry out an industrial project (300 hours) which places them in a professional situation and allows them to develop their autonomy
