Engineering Programme - Years 2 and 3

In years 2 and 3 respectively the students choose a specialisation, with 464 hours of courses, from the twenty or so proposed. This affords a double advanced technical competence to students completing both years 2 and 3. 

In their third or final year, students choose a professional option which focuses on a particular sector of activity or function. Each option comprises 136 hours of courses including project work within the relevant field.

In addition to the acquisition of technical and scientific expertise, Centrale Nantes places a strong emphasis on personal development and the fostering of interpersonal skills through the teaching of languages, sport, management and social sciences. Professional development is constructed through two industrial placements linked to the chosen specialisation or professional option in years 2 and 3.
