After passing the admission test you will start your cursus with the bachelor's programme in Engineering Sciences [180]. This programme offers a basic science education and a specific training in Engineering sciences.

During the second annual unit, you will opt for two different trainings in specialized Polytechnics. These specialization tracks enable you to get acquainted with two specialties in Engineering Sciences and to prepare you for a specialized master. Seven different specialization tracks are available: Applied Chemistry and Physics, Construction, Electricity, Computer Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Mechanics.

The student has the possibility to replace one of these tracks by an accessible opening minor.

Your profil

Following a strong math and science education during high school is recommended.

Your futur job

All industrial sectors need civil engineers: the chemical industry, pharmaceutical and food industries, electronics and telecommunications industries, metallurgy, aeronautics, construction and engineering, large scale distribution, banking and consulting services, nanotechnologies and medical technologies, etc.

They play a role as researchers and developers, are responsible for production or management and hold jobs in marketing and sales (of advanced technological products).

We find civil engineers in departments of finance, information technology, training or quality control, the public sector, higher education, or in the Ministry of equipment and transportation. (

Your programme

The programme offers :

  • a strong scientific education in : mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, numerical computation, probabilities and statistics, ...
