Sciences, methods and technologies

They are the basis of the various engineering professions and are the common thread of the subjects taught. Each of the HEI courses offers students solid skills in the sciences, techniques and technologies in general.

They are taught in both lectures and tutorials, but students also develop their knowledge of these subjects by experimenting in projects and group work.

A training course linked to the business world

In order to ensure the employability of our students, a focus on relations with companies is put in place. Project-based teaching plays an important role in the training program, involving subjects entrusted to us by the company whenever possible. Visits to construction sites or companies may also be part of the program.

The link with the business world is also established through internships or work-study programs, depending on the HEI program chosen.

Associations and student services also work to promote the professional integration of students. This is particularly true of the Prog’HEI junior company and the Career Center service.

Our international approach

All of our courses aim to offer students a profile that is largely international in scope. This is why the pursuit of learning two modern languages is essential. Some courses are taught 100% in English!

International experience is also valued and even mandatory. They can take the form of university exchanges for a semester or a year, internships, humanitarian projects or even student jobs.

The HEI program also welcomes students from all over the world: an unstoppable way to promote cultural openness.

HEI: a customized piecemeal training

Throughout their studies, students are required to make choices to personalize their career path and thus make them unique in the eyes of employers. By following the HEI program, you will be able to build a career path and a professional project that reflects you.

This personalization of your career path is done from the start, by choosing your internship companies, by getting involved in associations (sports, cultural, humanitarian…) or by carrying out projects that are close to your heart. The colorization of your curriculum also takes place in the 4th year when you will have to choose a professionalization field.

You are unique, your studies will be too.

Our campuses provide students with multiple technological resources and an exceptional work environment. Educational laboratories, a Fablab, a Codesign center and co-eLAB project platforms, many places are dedicated to learning, creativity and technological innovation.

HEI campuses also have a rich community life. There are many associations to help students develop their skills. Arts, sports, music, oenology, radio, humanitarian aid, school support, entrepreneurship club, junior enterprise, the themes are varied. Associative commitment is strongly emphasized at HEI because it encourages students to take on responsibilities, to become independent, to exchange ideas, to be open to others and is an excellent preparation for life in the corporate world.
