// Mechanical and production engineering

// Introduction and objectives of the course

The French mechanical industry is the fourth largest in the world and comprises 7,000 companies. Students must be able to cope with these companies’ requirements: developing a total quality approach, designing at low cost and having a good command of ISO 9000 and 14000 norms.

Therefore they are trained in the areas of quality, design, manufacturing, production management, automation, robotics, CAD/CAM, materials… Optional modules offer students additional skills in the field of textiles. The industrial placement allows students to step in the industrial world.

Besides its educational missions, the mechanical and production engineering department develops research and technological transfer activities, at local, national, and international levels.

// Course structure and content

The course is available on a full-time initial training over 4 semesters (under certain conditions, students can be admitted straight into the 3rd semester) as well as under a continuing education scheme.

// Career and study prospects

The most successful graduates can apply for further studies to most of the engineering schools in France (école nationale supérieure d’arts & métiers…). Others apply to further university courses in related disciplines. A lot of French secondary schools value the GMP graduate’s skills and encourage their students to take up this specialist subject in order to continue into higher education.
