At the start of the 4th year, the engineering students choose a field of study from 7 majors. Their choice may be influenced by their preferences and skills or by job market and sector trends. Their majors will help determine their first job. However, the versatility of EPF's engineering training means that students have a range of career options available.

  • The 1st semester of the 4th year is devoted to an internship abroad or a work experience (international students follow an harmonization semester)
  • The second semester of the 5th year is devoted to a semester-long work experience.



Aeronautics and Space : Our generalist engineers are taught broader skills related to aerospace vehicle design.

Structures and Materials : Looks at a wide range of materials used in general structures, with specific focuses on civil engineering, automobile manufacture, the naval industry or offshore.

Engineering & Digital Technologies : Trains generalist engineers who can make wise use of new information and communication technologies through a cross-disciplinary understanding of the workplace. 

Engineering & Management : Trains generalist engineers in cross-disciplinary industrial engineering in both technical issues and management, with a double focus on: production and supply chain management, as well as corporate management and strategic analysis. The students learn to negotiate large-scale projects in France and abroad.

Engineering & Health: The foundations of health sciences, healthcare IT systems, legal and economic issues, smart home systems for home healthcare, the latest telemedicine tools and medical imaging.


Energy & Environment: Trains engineers interested in new issues related to energy production, transport and distribution and its impact on the environment. Engineers who are individually and socially responsible and capable of selling and implementing the sustainable solutions of the future.


Buildings & Eco-Cities : This original training in the construction and renovation of buildings answer to a growing need for Engineers at consultancies, architecture firms, local authorities, construction groups, companies specialising in design or innovation in materials.
