A talent pool for companies

Co-invest in training engineers

Since 1994, more than 300 apprentice engineers have benefited from the mutual contribution of a reputable school and the experience of the many companies that have played the game.

Tutor and apprenticeship master

The apprentice engineer alternates stays of 4 to 5 weeks at school and in business. His Grenoble INP-Pagora's tutor and his corporate apprenticeship master accompany him throughout the course.

Missions entrusted to the apprentice engineer

The engineering degree depends on the results of the education and the work carried out as part of the apprenticeship. In addition to the industrial work carried out on behalf of the company, the apprentice engineer addresses specific subjects with the apprenticeship master and responding to imposed themes.
