ECAM Lyon General Engineering + Specialization
Each semester corresponds to 30 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), 300 for the Master’s Degree. Students who successfully complete the ECAM Engineering program will acquire key skills and competencies in the following areas:
- Basic Science – 15% – Mathematics, physics and chemistry
- Engineering Science – 22% – computing, electronics, automation, mechanical engineering, design – CAD, fluid mechanics, heat transfers
- Multidisciplinary projects – 19% – MECH Challenge, robotics project, sustainable development …
- Humanism and foreign languages – 16% – personal development, communication, entrepreneurship and innovation, inter-culturality
- Specialization – 28%
Year 1 & 2
The first 3 years form the fundamental scientific base through collaborative learning : Mathematics, Physics, Engineering Sciences. The scientific knowledge base is completed with classes in human and social sciences (languages, personal development, communication, etc). During the latter part of the first year, professors from our partner universities present an introduction to two specialised subjects: Systemic Design and Robotics. At the end of the academic year, students must carry out a month-long, operational internship in France or abroad. The students also make a first immersion trip to one of our two partner universities (visiting the campus, the town, local companies, etc.).
The 3rd year of the programme focuses more on engineering sciences (particularly mechanical and electrical engineering) while still maintaining the multidisciplinary approach with classes in the humanities. During this year, priority is given to the speciality chosen by the student (1/3 of the classes taken). Each student must carry out a 3-4 month “applied engineering” internship.
Students will also follow a year of specialised studies either in Robotics & IT (electronics, automation, programming) or Product Design (eco-conception, industrial design, product life cycle, materials, …) or Energy efficiency (sustainable energy…) or Production management (Lean, Supply Chain…) at one of our partner university.
After a 6-month engineering internship, the student will run a research project in cooperation with the partner university. This technical project, linked to the specialty they have chosen, means that the students who wish to can pursue their studies with a doctorate.
