Objectives

The MAE aims to train non management specialists with an "engineer" or scientific profile in management.
In the many sectors where technology is evolving and innovation is permanent, this dual competence is a key to the success of the integration and evolution of the managers trained. In fact, it provides them with two significant advantages:
- Better integration and development in the company, thanks to better recognition and ability to communicate with the technical sphere (knowledge and recognition by counterparts with a "scientific" profile who work in "production", "R&D", "sourcing" functions, etc.)
- A better ability to manage innovative projects and products, thanks to a thorough understanding of both technical and managerial aspects.

The first semester of the M1 is a common core. Specialisation takes place in the second semester.

The Master 2 is divided into three phases: acquisition of the fundamentals (3 months), professional specialisation (3 months) and internship (6 months). The internship, linked to the specialisation, represents a real springboard towards the company. It allows the practical application of academic knowledge and often leads to a fixed-term or permanent contract.
