Personal Project

Head: Jean-Sébastien Le Brizaut


The objective of this option is to provide a framework for our students to be more present and active in economic, philanthropic or associative projects (including humanitarian work, NGOs...) in order to help prepare their entry into the workforce and integration in society at large.

The aim is to develop the future engineer's initiative through a project which capitalises on both academic studies and personal initiative.

Course Content

A maximum of six projects per intake are accepted subsequent to a selection process. Throughout the project students are closely accompanied by a member of faculty and regular sessions are organized to bring the participants of the different projects together. 

Some examples of previous projects:

  • Building of a new school in India - communication and funding campaign
  • Feasibility study for setting up a company in Madagascar
