Engineer’s Profile

ESTIA engineers are generalist engineers, prepared for all industrial activities. Their approach and abilities enable them to work as part of project teams both in large companies and SME’s.

They contribute to competitive development in an environment and e-business based economy. In this context, they have a good command of all the elements required to develop products through their lifecycle, from expressing needs to operating and implementation. They acquire multi-technological skills in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and IT.


The three options available to students enable them to position themselves more precisely in the company’s system either as managers or operators.

Digital design & innovation

Development in mechanics, electronics, IT

Positioned upstream and dealing more particularly with product development and industrialisation aspects.

Mechatronics & embedded systems

Image processing, mobile robots, renewable energies

Corresponds to the design and implementation of embedded systems and production systems as well as their maintenance: mechatronics, automation, industrial IT, reliability

Industrial management & organisation

Industrialisation, global logistics, performance management


Mostly concerns the company system’s strategy and organisation, industrial system engineering science and methods, global logistics, safety and quality. This option is subject to apprenticeship

ESTIA engineers are project managers in all fields of activity, create activities and sometimes even set up their own companies. They are prepared to pilot innovative projects, and are able to appreciate the stakes and risks, motivate teams and sponsors, financing clients and suppliers.


Initially, the young graduate’s operational skills will of course be determined by the option chosen: either product and method oriented, or equipment and infrastructure oriented, or organisation and management oriented. However, all students acquire the following skills :

Technical skills

Be capable of adapting to a multi-technological environment:

  • able to understand and discuss mechanical and electrical engineering, and energy
  • control information systems, standards and components in software engineering, embedded IT and telecommunications
  • understand automation techniques for production system architecture
  • able to propose and make technological choices: stakes and risks; financing; environmental impact; controllability; etc.




Know how to examine a problem and provide an adequate response:

  • analyse the need
  • project management and project management methods
  • modellisation methods, especially with regard to information systems and processes
  • design approaches and methods

Industrial skills

Take into account a global environment (technical, socio-economic):

  • ability to assess projects from an economic perspective. Knowledge of models, standards and market tools in terms of design, logistics, manufacturing, measurement, etc.
  • understand the legal, economic, commercial and social environment of the company and its products
  • take into account performance management and control factors
  • more generally, understand and implement complex systems and processes

Interpersonal skills

  • ability to coordinate and lead project teams with a large number of heterogeneous players
  • ability to summarise, work autonomously, take the initiative, be curious
  • fluency in two foreign languages: English & Spanish
