Recruit an apprentice-engineer - His missions

Apprenticeship: years of study are also years of experience

Since 1994, more than 300 engineers have benefited from apprenticeship training: a successful combination of knowledge from a renowned school and the experience of the many companies that have played the game.
The apprentice engineer alternates between stays of 4 to 5 weeks at school and in a company. His tutor Grenoble INP-Pagora and his company apprenticeship master accompany him throughout the course.


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.
