Why should I become a biotechnologies e-health engineer?

This programme trains engineers capable of analyzing the needs linked to the development of products or various processes linked to life sciences and to control technical challenges. This goal is achieved by the acquisition of transversal knowledge and skills in the field of life sciences, acquisition, processing and management of data in health. 

Becoming a biotechnologies and e-health engineer allows you to participate in the digital health revolution, to work in a complex and multicultural ecosystem, in a restricted framework, where the normative, legal and ethical aspects are primordial.

The Biotechnologies and e-health course is certified by Medicen, the health competitiveness cluster for the Ile-de-France region.

How is the programme structured?

At the end of the first year of the engineering cycle, students choose their field of study. The course of study is spread over two years with compulsory and optional scientific and technical courses, management courses and modern languages.


2nd year of the engineering cycle

The courses take place over two semesters, each one subdivided into two periods. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. The second semester is made up of one teaching period and an internship period of at least 12 weeks. From January to April, students must work in teams on multidisciplinary projects proposed by industrial partners, laboratories or ESIEE Paris teachers.  All students may take optional modern language 2 courses.

  • UE - Advanced science and technology (330 h - 27 ECTS)
  • UE - Open science and technology (90 h - 10 ECTS)
  • UE - Management and human sciences (120 h - 7 ECTS)
  • UE - Modern languages (76 h - 4 ECTS)
  • Internship (12 ECTS)

3rd year of the engineering cycle

The courses take place over in two semesters. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. In the second semester, the student must complete an end-of-studies internship of at least 24 weeks (6 months) in a company or research laboratory.

  • UE - Advanced science and technology (180 h - 18 ECTS)
  • UE - Open science and technology (60 h - 5 ECTS)
