Training path

Major & Minor

In the 4th year, you will choose a major from among five. This “career” orientation will allow you to go deeper into the field that suits you.

You will also choose a minor among ten. The minors are oriented towards “sectors of activity” to discover or confirm your choice of profession applied to a sector.


(your choice – 600 hours over 2 years)

  • Big Data & Data Science
  • Cybersecurity and networks
  • Connected objects & intelligent systems
  • Digital Transition
  • Artificial Intelligence


(your choice – 50h)

Each business sector has its own codes. It is therefore easier to integrate quickly into the professional world if you know them beforehand.

In the 4th year, you will have at your disposal a panel of 10 minors. This complementary module of 50 hours will allow you to discover a sector of activity related to your major. They correspond to the sectors in which our former students evolve.

  • Consulting (service companies)
  • Health (hospital environment and chemical and pharmaceutical industries)
  • Banking, finance, insurance
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Industrial environment
  • Research & innovation
  • Silver economy (services for the elderly)
  • Maritime and port environments
  • Social and Solidarity Economy
  • Smart Territories

They testify

Amandine, Digital Engineer:

“I have always wanted to work in IT, because there are so many opportunities in this field. Today, I want to specialize in cybersecurity and work in several countries: the world is vast and it could be very enriching, professionally and culturally.”

The projects

The Executive Experts Cycle includes team projects that take place over several months.

Application project

The application project takes place in the 4th year, in groups, around a cross-cutting and multidisciplinary theme aimed at broadening your knowledge with a view to your professional project and structuring an approach to finding solutions.

Research initiation project

This project is carried out in the 5th year and allows students to reinforce their research and synthesis methods on innovative technologies. It is supported by the ESAIP Research Center, research laboratories and companies.

In-company application project

The in-company application project, activ’esaip, takes place in the 5th year and prepares for the end-of-study internship. It puts you in a professional situation for an engineering mission carried out in a team, under the joint responsibility of a teacher-researcher and the company tutor who has defined the specifications.


Gain valuable professional experience through internships in companies

Supervisor internship

The “Agent de maîtrise” internship lasts 3 months at the end of the 4th year. It consists of discovering the technical aspects of the engineering profession while being able to observe and understand the other aspects of the profession.

Engineer internship

The “Engineer” internship lasts 6 months, at the end of the Engineering cycle. It allows you to validate your studies at ESAIP by putting into practice, independently, an engineering mission. Finally, it is validated by a thesis and a presentation in three languages reflecting the school’s international background.
