Why should I become a smart electronic systems engineer?

Electronic engineers can work in more and more sectors with the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) : computer science, telecommunications, aeronautics, automobile, etc. From the idea to the manufacture, multiple stages are necessary and the progress can be monitored. 

Present everywhere, electronics have a major role in the French economy. Especially since the digital revolution which created new needs.

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)
  • UE - Management and human sciences (90 h - 5 ECTS)
  • UE - Modern languages (42 h - 4 ECTS)
  • Internship (30 ECTS)
