Recruit a degree apprenticeship student

Have you considered taking on a degree apprenticeship student in your company?

Centrale Nantes is totally geared towards working hand-in-hand with industry. We were one of the first general engineering schools to introduce degree apprenticeships. Two different degree apprenticeship programmes are on offer at Centrale Nantes:

  1. within the general engineering programme
  2. in partnership with the ITII des Pays de la Loire.

Avantages for the company in both formats:

  • train a multi-skilled engineer with a high scientific and technological level who is committed and open to the diversity of knowledge for one, two or three years. 
  • Provide him/her with training tailored to your business and transmit your corporate culture with a view to recruitment at the end of the course.

Apprenticeship within the general engineering programme

  • The admission procedures (via competitive entrance examinations) and the diploma obtained are identical to those for all students on the engineering programme.
  • Degree apprenticeship students follow the same or similar courses as their fellow engineering programme students.
  • Students are prepared in advance for recruitment events: afterwork events, CV - cover letter workshops, training for job interviews. 

3 options:

One year degree apprenticeship

Two year degree apprenticeship
