ECAM Lyon General Engineering + Specialization
Each semester equals 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%
Years 1 & 2
The first 2 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 specialized subjects. At the end of the academic year, students must carry out a month-long, operational internship in France or abroad.
The 3rd year of the program focuses more on engineering sciences (particularly mechanical and electrical engineering) while still maintaining the multidisciplinary approach with professional and personal development courses. During this year, priority is given to the specialization chosen by the student (1/3 of the classes). Each student must carry out a 3-4 month applied engineering internship.
Years 4 & 5
Students will also follow a year of specialized studies in either Robotics & IT (electronics, automation and programming), Engineering Design, Energy Engineering, or Industrial & Supply Chain Management in one of our partner universities.
After a 6-month engineering internship, the student will conduct a research project in cooperation with the partner university. This technical project, linked to the field they have chosen, means that the students can pursue their studies with a doctorate if they wish to.
