Master in Engineering Bac + 5

Ivry-sur-SeineLavalBac +5FrenchEnglishCTI


ESIEA’s Master in Engineering, accredited by the Engineering Titles Commission (CTI), is a 5-year degree specializing in the fields of digital science and technology (300 ECTS credits).

The program includes two cycles, the Preparatory Curriculum and the Engineering Curriculum, which are complemented by the numerous projects and activities offered to students during their five years at ESIEA.

These extracurricular programs are intended to help students develop people skills and connections, in addition to supplementing their academic skills. In the International Section, the Engineering Degree technical and scientific courses are taught in English.

With an active alumni network, partnerships with companies, HCERES-certified research laboratories, and student organizations, ESIEA can provide all students with the framework needed to cultivate their curiosity, build their sense of initiative, seek answers, and innovate for a better world.

These tools also help students to adapt and integrate, in both professional and research contexts. 

Preparatory Curriculum

The first cycle of the Master in Engineering program lasts two years, and its coursework aims to provide students with a complete foundation in mathematics, physics, electronics, and computer science, as well as social and managerial skills, in line with ESIEA’s ethos. 

In addition to giving students a theoretical background, the integrated Preparatory curriculum offers a practical approach to learning, which begins as early as the first year.

The First Year of the Preparatory Curriculum

Students who choose the International Section will begin to take technical and scientific courses in English as soon as they enter ESIEA.

In addition to taking the same core courses as students who are not in the International Section, students in the IS will benefit from specialized classes on multicultural management. They are also required to learn a second language, whether Japanese, Chinese, German or Spanish.

The Second Year of the Preparatory Curriculum

In the first semester of the second year, all students in the International Section study abroad with a partner institution of their choice.

For the second semester, back in France, students will resume taking scientific and technical courses in English.

The Engineering Curriculum

This three-year cycle allows future engineers to consolidate their knowledge, discover new horizons and pick their specialization.

First Year of the Engineering Curriculum

Students in the International Section will continue taking scientific and technical courses during their first year of the Engineering Curriculum.

Up to 18 months of international experience 

The Second Year of the Engineering Curriculum

All students must choose a Major for their Master’s:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Artificial Intelligence & Data Science (Only available at the Paris/Ivry-sur-Seine campus)
  • Virtual Reality & Immersive Systems (Only available at the Laval campus)
  • Embedded & Autonomous Systems
  • Software Engineering

In the International Section, courses in English continue. Future engineers must complete a technical internship of 4 to 5 months, either in France or abroad.

Third Year of the Engineering Curriculum

Students will finalize their individual academic plan with a Minor chosen among:

  • Systems & Network Administration
  • Business Engineering
  • Financial Computing
  • Innovation: Entrepreneurship & Intrapreneurship
  • Low tech & Budget Innovation
  • Robotics
  • Information systems

Students complete their program with an internship at the end of their studies, either in France or abroad. 

International dual degrees

Thanks to the ESIEA’s partnerships with numerous universities in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, China and Japan, students in their 3rd year of the Engineering Curriculum have the opportunity to acquire an International Dual Degree : one from ESIEA and one from the chosen institution.

Courses at partner universities can help to enhance students’ skills in their field of specialization or add new ones via programs with a managerial or commercial dimension. Courses at partner universities are taught entirely in English.

Admission Requirements

Students can register for the International Section from the first year of the Preparatory Curriculum up until the second year of the Engineering Curriculum, through the application process for the Master in Engineering. The program requires an advanced level in English.
