Mobility of engineer students
In 3 rd year, in a foreign university for one or two semesters.
The basic knowledge of the engineer curriculum is then already acquired ; the choice of subject is thus relatively free. The students are often recommended to opt for specialities that are less taught at the ENSIACET (environment, biochemistry…)
In 3 rd year, in a foreign university for 15 to 18 months to obtain a second diploma (Master).
The first ten months are validated for the A7 3 rd year and give access to the A7 engineer degree, then the rest of the training (in general a research placement) makes the students eligible for a Master of Science from their host university.
In 3 rd year, in a company.
The 3 rd year compulsory industrial placement is then achieved in a company abroad.
Type of mobility chosen by A7 engineer students
Through exchange programmes : ERASMUS/SOCRATES, CREPUQ, TASSEP, LEONARDO, bilateral agreements
Through a personal application, with registration at the host university ( USA, University of Natal in Durban or University of Cape Town)
Chiefly in English-speaking countries : UK, USA, Australia, South Africa…or in countries offering courses taught in English ( Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands)
In German or Spanish-speaking countries… (Germany, Spain, Italy…)
In French-speaking countries (Canada-Quebec, Switzerland, Belgium…)
