Ranked in the top 10 of the best French engineering schools*, the ECE stands out in particular for its “offbeat start”. To all those who have taken the wrong path, welcome to the second chance school, which guarantees you fulfillment and success.
With four campuses located in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and soon Rennes, the ECE has become, over the years, a great engineering school whose reputation is second to none. Connected to the world around it and keen to renew its programs according to technological developments and the current expectations of companies in the sector, the ECE is a school in tune with the times, which trains the engineers of tomorrow and places the students at the center of education.
In fact, in addition to being able to personalize their course according to their skills and the specialties available, the ECE offers a staggered start of the school year via two courses: the accelerated Prepa, called Prepac Engineer, and the Spring Bachelor. The goal? Accelerated training so that students can then join the school’s flagship programs – the Grande École Program or the Bachelor Program – without wasting a year. A golden opportunity for those who have taken the wrong path and wish to join the ECE along the way. How it works ? We explain to you in detail.
At ECE, come home whenever you want
Just imagine: you have embarked on studies that do not suit you and you want to continue on another course without waiting for the next school year. What to do ? Take a look at the ECE, which welcomes you in March 2023, in the middle of the year! In short, with the ECE and its daring concept of “offset start”, you can reorient yourself, benefit from accelerated courses and thus integrate the Grande École course or the Bachelor course, six months later.
Within the Engineer Prepac and the Spring Bachelor, you then benefit from condensed courses. In one semester, you will do what usually takes two. Too much work ? Absolutely not. Thanks to tailor-made support, committed teachers and a quality learning policy, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to upgrade and continue your studies at ECE. Not to mention that the staggered back-to-school concept gives wings: having the opportunity to start from scratch is motivating, and the faster you progress, the more you want to… progress.
Two sectors, necessarily yours
Engineering appeals to you and offbeat back-to-school seduces you? You can therefore choose to join the Prépac Ingénieur or the Spring Bachelor. How to make your choice?
If you are interested in life sciences, material sciences, health, paramedical, electronics, automation, energy, electricity, mechanics, aeronautics, automotive, Earth Sciences, but also digital, IT and multimedia, go to Prepac Engineer. For six months, you will consolidate your knowledge to then enter the second year of the preparatory cycle as part of the Grande École Program or to eventually aim for the MSc program, in the event that you decide to specialize (in cybersecurity, in artificial intelligence, in the field of future energies, etc.).
If, however, electronics and automatics speak less to you while you are curious to discover industrial technologies, then the Spring Bachelor calls for you: this course will allow you to catch up in one semester with the level of the first year of Bachelor, to join the Bachelor program, and become, in three years, an expert in engineering.
Who is it for, the staggered start of the school year?
The staggered start of the school year is aimed at students between 17 and 19 years old, who are in bac +1 and wish to reorient themselves.
More specifically, the Prepac Engineer welcomes students in PASS, L.AS, CPGE 1st year or scientific L1 courses. These streams provide them with a background that the accelerated preparation for ECE will consolidate for access to the second year; 94% of students are admitted.
The Spring Bachelor welcomes students in the course of their studies (bac +1) after a general baccalaureate spé Maths, an STI2D, STMG or STAV technological baccalaureate or a professional baccalaureate in electricity and its connected environments (MELEC) or Digital Systems (SN) or any other foreign scientific or technological training.
