At ESIEE-IT, we have digital at its core. Among the school’s main areas of expertise: robotics. The institution offers outstanding training, from post-baccalaureate to baccalaureate +5, to prepare for various careers in this (very) thriving sector.

88%… This is the employment rate for ESIEE-IT students in the six months following the end of their studies. Why this school specializes in digital expertise? Excellence training (BTS, BSc, MSc, College of Engineering) in areas where the recruitment needs of companies are inexhaustible: IT, home automation / smart and green buildings, business analysis and thus robotics.

Robotics and electronics sector, a booming sector

Let’s start with the introductions. A distinction is traditionally made between two types of robots: on the one hand, service robots, which are intended to help people in their daily lives, and on the other hand, industrial robots, which are necessary in the factory of the future. ESIEE-IT aims to provide training in all these very promising areas. It must be said that the revolutions of the fifth generation, real-time networks, connected things, and artificial intelligence have contributed to the emergence of new projects in the areas of servicing robots and industrial robots.

Premium ESIEE-IT Training Programs

Located in its modern, rural campus in Montigny-le-Bretonneux in Yvelines, ESIEE-IT offers training that combines programming, artificial intelligence, robotics and electronics.

The course begins with a BTS option in Digital Systems, Electronics, and Communications. It targets holders of the General Baccalaureate with a scientific and technological (STI2D) or vocational (SN-MELEC) focus and trains for the professions of Test Technician, Quality and Control Technician, Electronics Technician or even Communications and Networks Technician. Occupations that can be found both in housing – for the problems of optimizing energy consumption -, in industry – through the development of interconnected things – and in the tertiary sector, to simplify access to service users. Among the main tasks of these technicians of a new type are: preparing a hardware or software solution, manufacturing or repairing printed circuits, wiring, integrating and configuring electronic equipment, etc.

Then place in the CNAM Industrial Robots Professional License. This training, as its name suggests, is for industrial robotics. This is a fundamental strategic issue in terms of the speed of implementation and the accuracy of the industrial robot that makes it possible to increase productivity and reduce the difficulty of work. There are two groups of industrial robots: assembly robots and mobile robots, associated with artificial intelligence, that focus on inspection tasks. The professional license trains specifically for the professions of automation technician, production line installer or maintenance manager. Lots of profiles indicating a high level of engineering expertise. It is really a matter of mastering skills in automation, mechanics and robotics in order to be able to install, operate and repair a robot.

Finally, ESIEE-IT offers a 5+ baccalaureate-level training in robotics with the title of Director in Computer Engineering, Robotics and Technological Innovation. It derives its raison d’être from the continuous development of the Connected Objects market and aims to train managers who can design and integrate robots, as well as develop innovative technological solutions. Among the occupations targeted, there are jobs such as project manager in automation and robotics, integrator of new technology, designer of robotics or vision, designer of technology solutions, engineer of robotics and mechatronics, etc. At the same time, the topics studied in class, have nothing to envy for a good science fiction movie: artificial intelligence, programming, object design, mobile assistance robots, robotics, industrial robotics, robotic design and prototyping, 3D modeling, vision ( image processing, virtual reality, augmented reality), etc.

Pedagogy in tune

This is consistent with ESIEE-IT: All courses are based on work-oriented teaching to facilitate the assimilation of knowledge and promote professional integration. At the heart of this pedagogy: “learning by doing” and work-study. Concretely, students are not in lecture halls, they are juggling things, implementing practical cases and studied projects. They also put their learning into practice during work and study periods. This is present at all levels and allows you to benefit from both free and paid training. ESIEE-IT puts its extensive network (more than 1,000 partner companies) at the disposal of its students to enable them to find the right nodes for their ambitions.
