The "Centralien" skills framework

The 5 skills of the Centralien
This framework based on five key skills is used throughout the Ecoles Centrale Group and was drawn up in consultation with experts from the business world. It is applied throughout the engineering programme curriculum, and follows a trajectory within which different levels of progression are defined. From the first year onwards, the acquisition of Centralien skills can be highlighted on the CV, LinkedIn profile, etc.
