Training courses to prepare tomorrow's mobility specialists

    Training courses preparing tomorrow's mobility specialists 

    ESTACA offers training as an engineer over five years, characterized by  specialization in a particular area of transport from the second year. Each student chooses their transport area according to their wishes or personal interests: automobile, guided transport systems, aeronautics or space.

    They acquire in-depth knowledge of the sector, making them operational as soon as they graduate. In addition to the transport option, the lessons contain a common core based on science, the human sciences and an education as an engineer. The course is based on the expertise of teachers who often have a background in the industry, personalized supervision and a training course oriented towards practical work and the completion of projects supervised by professionals.

    Objectives of the engineering training course

    ESTACA's objective is to train engineers who are operational and adaptable to the technological developments of the future industrial world. Through this training, the students must:

    • acquire multidisciplinary skills in engineering sciences and transport engineering
    • know how to make use of and transfer the acquired knowledge
    • become familiar with industrial practices, both concerning the reasoning process and modes of organization
    • choose their curriculums and construct a personalized professional project
    • develop their personalities and open up to the world

    ESTACA programmes open to international students

    Programmes in French

    For each of its major disciplines, ESTACA offers a highly professionalized curriculum.

    All courses are open to international students, enabling them to discover new teaching methods through one or two study semester(s), either on our Paris Saclay Campus in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (near Paris) or our Laval Campus.

    Students will receive 30 credits per semester.

    ESTACA's major disciplines are:

    To apply :

    3 Programmes in English

    ESTACA offers 3 programmes in English: Advanced Master Air Operations and Maintenance®, Advanced Master Embedded Lighting Systems® and Automotive & Aeronautics Design Programme.
    They are designed for foreign students, and should teach them how to work with international teams on practical projects, in connection with our industrial partners.

    You are invited to get more information about ESTACA school life, and the key facts about Paris and Laval campuses.
