The API program on Lyon’s campus
API-ECAM (year of preparation Engineer), is a reinforcement program for BAC+2 which allows them to consolidate their academic achievements in order to integrate, subsequently, a training of engineers. Historically based in the CCI Ain in Bourg-en-Bresse, this program has moved on the ECAM Lyon’s campus in September 2019.
