Summer Schools

Chaque année, ECAM Lyon organise sur son campus des programmes courts « Summer School » alliant contenus scientifiques et visites de sites culturels, en collaboration avec ses partenaires académiques. L’Ecole encourage également fortement ses étudiants à participer à des programmes similaires organisés par ses partenaires académiques dans d’autres pays.

Summer Schools organisées sur le campus ECAM Lyon : 

  • Summer School en Génie Mécanique : ce programme est mené par un professeur visitant de Manhattan College (NY, USA). Une quinzaine d’étudiants américains participent à ce programme également ouverts aux étudiants ECAM Lyon sous conditions.
  • Summer School in Science and Engineering :  ce programme est organisé avec l’IPL. Il s’adresse à des étudiants en premier cycle au sein d’universités étrangères et propose des cours en génie énergétique et électrique ainsi que des visites de sites culturels. En savoir plus.

This 5-week program is a unique opportunity to experience life abroad, improve your French and develop your technical and scientific skills! It is open to undergraduate students with engineering or technical backgrounds from any university around the world, and is offered in collaboration with three other engineering schools in Lyon, all partners within the consortium of Institut Polytechnique de Lyon (IPL).

At ECAM Lyon, students will learn about Energy and Sustainability through a multidisciplinary approach including mechanical and electrical engineering, and materials science. Students will also take an in-depth look at the regulatory and business context around energy production in Europe and France

Most of the largest challenges we will face in the future (global warming, increasing scarcity of fossil fuels, the impact of production methods and materials, etc.) are related to how we produce and use energy and the consequences of those actions. The course aims to teach future engineers the industrial and regulatory context, the technical concepts and tools needed to comprehend these challenges, and explore the solutions of tomorrow.
