ECAM LaSalle engineering graduates specialising in “Mechanical and Electrical Engineering” are high-level technical and scientific engineers who are trained in the fields of mechanics, mechatronics, robotics, energy, electricity and supply chain management. Sustainable development issues are integrated throughout the program. These courses are rounded out with the acquisition of skills in management, project management, finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, innovation and the normative and regulatory knowledge they need for their activities.
The curriculum consists of a common core, two and a half years (5 semesters) of general education, followed by two and a half years (5 semesters) of gradual specialisation. There are four specialisations. Students must choose their pathway at the beginning of third year, which will thereby become an integral part of their student-engineer course.
This multidisciplinary training, taught entirely in English, allows future engineers to become proficient in the fields of energy, advanced mechanics, robotics, and industrial excellence while also developing their design and analysis skills. They can earn of 30 ECTS each semester.
The first two and a half years (5 semesters) are composed of general courses. They lay the fundamental scientific groundwork using collaborative teaching methods. The last two and a half years (5 semesters) allow you to specialise and consolidate your skills through projects and internships.
International students can also take French language and culture courses. By the end of the program, students will need to have mastered at least two languages: English (C1) and French (B2), in addition to their native language, if applicable.
The courses include the following:
Student-engineers spend the fifth year of the programme at an international partner university. These academic partners are leaders in the field of specialisation they have chosen.
Students can choose to specialise in one of four areas of specialisation, called “pathways”. Before choosing an area of specialisation, student-engineers learn about them at workshops during the second year of the programme. These workshops take place over four weeks during the second year.
The 4 fields of specialisation (pathways) :
Robotics and Automation Engineering :
Robotics has dramatically changed the economy in recent decades. In the automotive sector, for example, robotisation has truly revolutionised the industry. There is a real need for highly trained workers who can integrate robotics into numerous systems. This specialisation will teach you how to define the specifications of a robot and how to control it in relation to a given application. You will enjoy experimenting with simulated and real robots, whether it be with robotic arms or mobile robots.
Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering :
This specialisation provides an understanding of the energy transition challenge. It pertains to the design and development of various strategies aimed at increasing energy efficiency and reducing costs. The specialisation covers the design of renewable energy facilities and the development of energy optimisation models for systems and machines. The aim is to better manage energy production and distribution. This specialisation enables students to analyse the effect of energy practices on the environment and the local economy, as well as the crucial issue of equipment maintenance and recycling.
Mechanical Engineering :
Mechanical design covers engineering principles which apply the basics of physics, mathematics and engineering sciences to optimally meet a set goal. Engineering students use their creativity to find effective technical solutions that meet mechanical design challenges. They develop optimal design models that can operate efficiently and safely by selecting the right materials, while also integrating including realistic constraints, such as economic factors.
The key qualities of a mechanical design engineer are flexibility, positive attitude, organisation and attention to detail.
Industrial Engineering and Supply Chain Management :
One of the current challenges is the management of industrial organisation, from production costs to the release of products on the market. To remain competitive, the industry of the future responds to this challenge by innovating through processes, technology, methods and supply chains to meet customers’ needs. The industrialisation project enables you to learn how to design and create the factory 4.0 factory of the future.
