Training program

The training of an engineer in Geosciences and Environment is divided into three main periods:

  • Semesters 1 to 4: common core courses   
  • Semester 5: students specialize in one of the 3 courses of study.   
  • Semester 6: students join their company for a long mission, leading to the writing of the final thesis.

Periods in a company

In total, the student apprentice spends 60% of his time in a company. They benefit from the same rights to paid leave as the company's other employees.

Apprenticeship rhythm

  • 1st and 2nd years: 1 month in the company / 1 month at UniLaSalle   
  • 3rd year: 4 months at UniLaSalle (in-depth course) followed by 6 to 8 months in the company
