ECPM Engineering Cycle

Becoming an ECPM engineer

Cycle Ingénieur ECPMThe ECPM produces trilingual chemical engineers, mainly for the chemical industry in the R&D&I sector, with a solid scientific and technological culture in the field of chemistry and materials for health and the environment, and who are able to evolve in an intercultural and international context.

  •  A 3-semester core curriculum to acquire basic knowledge in analytical sciences, molecular chemistry, polymer engineering, functional materials and nanosciences; From the 2nd semester : Possibility to choose a curriculum arrangement that integrates courses and projects in artificial intelligence.

  • In the middle of the 2nd year, choice of a major to refine one's path in analytical sciences, molecular chemistry, polymer engineering or functional materials and nanoscience. Students who have chosen the Artificial Intelligence program in the first year continue in the Artificial Intelligence and Chemistry major at the beginning of the second year. In addition, they choose, in the middle of the year, to take the chemistry courses of one of the other four majors. The year ends with a 4-month internship
  • 3rd year, several possibilities:
    • Classical year with or without a parallel master's degree,
    • Study abroad (with or without a double degree depending on the destination),
    • Mobility into a chemistry school of the Gay-Lussac Federation,
    • 1 year of professionalization in a company.

Characteristics of the ECPM engineering programme:

  • An international orientation: language classes make up 11% the programme; 40% of scientific lectures are in English and German; one internship has to be completed outside of France; the 3rd year can be spent entirely abroad; double diplomas can be done in conjunction with German and Spanish universities; the ECPM has 45 partner universities.
  • Technical skills are prioritized: lab sessions represent 40% of the programme.
  • Strong interaction with research: internships and projects in our internationally recognized research laboratories; availability of the labs' cutting-edge technology; possibility of doing a concurrent Research Master's Degree in the 3rd year.
  • Industry at the heart of the programme: 3 internships are required; 15% of teaching is done by industrial partners; students benefit from thematic days, visiting speakers, real-world experiences, student–business forums, projects, and courses in human, social and economic sciences to promote familiarity with the world of industry.
  • The formalizing of a career plan: a skills-based approach drawing on internships and projects.

After graduation:

The Master Administration des Entreprises (MAE) (Master's in Business Administration), a double qualification for manager–engineers.

A personalizable 4-month programme offered by the EM Strasbourg Business School for the price of a basic enrolment fee, offered to graduate engineers of the Alsace Tech network (a network of engineering schools in Alsace).
