ESIEA’s main characteristic since its creation in 1958 is to offer multidisciplinary training. It gives priority to the human dimension in the understanding of technologies.

Our mission is to contribute to knowledge and practice in the field of Digital Technologies and their applications, and to train engineers able to adapt and participate in economic and social change.

How are ESIEA’s methods different from those of other Engineering schools?
 
ESIEA bases its teaching methods on the education-research-innovation triangle. We aim at giving each of our students a taste for constant learning and entrepreneurship. Our mission is to train engineers able to adapt and contribute to the evolution of society. ESIEA’s main characteristic since its creation in 1958 is to offer multidisciplinary training. It gives priority to the human dimension in the understanding of technologies. Each student is brought to become aware of his/her personal qualities and potential, both at school and in everyday life, through individualized support.

 

How is ESIEA’s education organized?
 
Our primary concern is the development of qualities like adaptability, a sense of responsibility and a taste for experimentation very early in their education. The first year focuses on working methods and reasoning, both scientific and technical, to successfully engage in engineering studies. The 2nd and 3rd years revolve around team projects with a learning-by-doing approach. These two years allow ESIEA students to gain experience abroad and to forge a rewarding career path. The last two years are an opportunity for ESIEA students to personalize their course. They can choose between two subjects : Information Systems (Computer Science) and Embedded Systems (Electronics). It is up to them to build their own path during their 5th year with a specialized major among six available, and a minor (technical and managerial) among thirteen.

 

How do technical advances impact on ESIEA’s teaching?
 
ESIEA regularly updates its teaching in order to allow its students to develop the most relevant skills for their future career. ESIEA’s program takes technological advances into account and offers new majors and minors every year. For example problematics such as cyber security, Big Data, the Cloud, virtualisation, smartgrids, connected objects and applications in arts or healthcare. In a world in which technologies evolve rapidly, ESIEA chooses to look beyond technical expertise and incites its students to explore their abilities and knowledge, with the support of teachers, researchers and businesses, contributing to this attitude. These interactions allow ESIEA to teach a wide range of cutting-edge subjects that are motivating and tightly linked to a professional environment.
