The End of Studies Project is the culmination of the initial training. During this predominantly technical and scientific work, the student must be able to apply his or her knowledge and skills to work in a professional context. Lasting 5 months (20 weeks), the project must begin at the end of semester 9, in February, except in exceptional and motivated cases (double diplomas in particular).

For students with STUDENT status: End-of-study projects are tripartite projects between the school, the host structure and the students. They are proposed at school and distributed to the students by the pedagogical staff. They must be validated by the person in charge of industrial partnerships, who can then promote the school and the partnership agreement to companies.
In this context, personal approaches are not recommended as they may not lead to an agreement: the student must inform the managers very quickly if he or she wishes to work in a particular company.

For students with ALTERNATIVE status: The project is proposed by the company and validated by the educational manager.

Personal project of a technical and scientific nature. The provisions concerning deliverables and deliverables are as follows:

to be sent back in the first week for students in France.

to be returned at the end of the first 2 weeks of the PFE to the tutor by email and to the option manager ICI, IFB by chamilo. Pagora model possible, any other form accepted. It allows to take stock of the work and its planning from the beginning of the project. It will be updated and followed throughout the PFE. It will be added to the portfolio.

STUDENT: Mid-term oral defense in the presence of the industrial tutor. A skills assessment is essential. During an on-site visit or by videoconference if the visit proves impossible.

LEARNER: Mid-term oral presentation in the presence of the industrial tutor. A skills assessment is essential. During an on-site visit or by videoconference if the visit proves impossible. Counts in the final mark.

It must be printed in 6 copies:

  • 4 copies of the manuscript will be submitted to the school before the date specified in the pedagogical calendar published on the intranet the end of June for students, towards the end of August for apprentices). The manuscripts will then be distributed by the school to each member of the jury, the rapporteur and the school tutor.
  • 1 copy of the PFE manuscript for the company.
  • 1 copy of the PFE manuscript for the student.
    1 copy of the manuscript of PFE in electronic format (PDF) must be deposited on Chamillo in the dedicated space. Confidential PFE's will be deposited in the "Confidential PFE" folder.

FORM: the report will be presented stapled and without transparent cover or cardboard and printed on both sides. Colour is also to be avoided unless the subject dictates otherwise. Use standard fonts (Calibri, Times, Arial...) in 11 point size, line spacing 1.15.
The manuscript of about 40 pages (plus possible appendices) must include, in addition to the description of the project:

  • a standard cover page to be downloaded from the intranet: Section [Formation \ Documents or PFE] or on chamilo.
  • a back page with a 10-line abstract and 3-6 key words on the back cover (in English and French).

Case of PFE's carried out abroad or on behalf of a non-French speaking company: The PFE brief can be written in English. In this case, the introduction, the conclusion and the back page with a 10 line summary with 3-6 key words must be written in English AND French. The defense is done in French (possibility to present slides in English). In some cases, the presentation may be made in English, after acceptance by the director of studies, on the explicit request of the teacher or school tutor.

For "confidential" manuscripts, it is essential to mention it on the cover page at the top right.

EVALUATION OF THE REPORT: a rapporteur, designated by the Director of Studies in consultation with the Heads of Options, examines the manuscript to evaluate the quality of the presentation (structuring, conciseness, clarity, bibliography...) according to FOR-628-RF and proposes a mark from 0 to 20. Each jury president will be in charge of collecting and approving the notes of the rapporteurs in consultation with the other jury members. The grade validated by the jury will be transmitted to the school at the end of the oral exams.

2. POSTER: An A1 format poster must be produced. This poster must present a summary of the project according to the model to be downloaded on Chamilo or on the intranet. The PDF file of the poster should be uploaded on Chamillo in the dedicated space. The poster should present the project in a non-confidential manner as it illustrates the types of PFE work carried out by the students.
1 A3 colour printed copy of the poster should be submitted at the same time as the report.
1 A4 printed version of the poster will be attached as an appendix to the report.

WARNING: for a mailing, it is imperative that the manuscript and the poster are received before the deadline in school: the late submission of the manuscript and the poster will automatically result in a grade of "0" by the reporter. Moreover, no defense can take place if the report and the poster are not returned at least 48 hours (excluding weekends) before the defense.

The manuscript and poster, in their final version, must have been submitted to the company before being handed in to the school. Furthermore, it is strongly recommended that the student submits both documents to his school tutor for correction.

Presentation of 20 minutes of the project in front of a jury in the presence of the educational tutor and the industrial tutor if the latter can travel.
The presentation will be followed by 20 to 30 minutes of questions. The industrial tutor will be consulted in order to inform the jury of any problems that the student may have encountered and which may have hindered the completion of quality work.
The student will be evaluated according to the MAPI reference, method, analysis, pedagogy, initiative by the members of the jury.
The marks of the different juries can be harmonised at the end of the whole of the defenses.



The evaluation of the PFE takes into account the following criteria :

  • the student's involvement: grade given by the teacher in charge of the project, after consultation with the industrial tutor or apprentice teacher
  • For apprentices only, mid-term (May) assessment of work: the apprentice submits a report of at least 3 pages and formally presents his/her progress to the tutor who assesses the work, its quality and makes any comments that may lead the pupil to complete certain points.
  • the form of the report (spelling, outline, captions, units, etc.) and the quality of the poster
  • Oral presentation before a university jury (presentation to which the industrial tutor or apprentice master is invited). The jury evaluates the technical quality of the work done, the methodology used, the mastery of the subject and the relevance of the answers, the quality of the presentation. (the technical content of the report is therefore of great importance in this evaluation).

Can only be taken into account in a new report or a new defense.

note = 15% rapport ; 35% tuteur ; 50% soutenance finale (40% finale + 10% intermédiaire pour les apprentis)


The course exists in the following branches:
