ECAM LaSalle’s professors regularly bring their expertise and solutions to solve companies’ unique industrial problems. Consulting is based on an established objective and workload and billed accordingly.
ECAM LaSalle, through its LabECAM, is able to conduct research on two main themes:
To facilitate industry’s access to LabECAM’s scientific and technological expertise, our researchers are available to analyze research objectives and give adapted proposals.
Research carried out with industry can lead to doctoral dissertations. Through their research for their doctorate, doctoral students can carry out work for LabECAM’s partner organizations or companies. Doctoral students work on a research project for approximately three years through a CIFRE agreement. This agreement allows companies to receive subsidies for recruiting doctoral students whose research projects, carried out with LabECAM, lead to a dissertation.
All ECAM LaSalle general engineering students at the end of their studies must carry out a R&D project. They work in pairs for a semester on a real-life business problem using ECAM LaSalle’s laboratories. Students work directly with industry representatives to clearly define the workload and objectives that ECAM LaSalle will then use as the foundation for a bill. All intellectual property resulting from this project belongs wholly to the company and can be kept confidential at the company’s request. Companies can follow the project’s progress through regular meetings up until the official presentation of the findings to a jury. Students spend at least 250 hours on their R&D project.
