Master thesis (30 ECTS credits)
The final semester of the course is dedicated to the End of Studies Project (Projet de Fin d'Etudes, PFE). This is a study or project whose objectives are defined in advance by the project supervisor. The subject of the PFE must be within the domains covered by the program.
The PFE lasts for a minimum of 5 months, between February and June, and takes place either in industry or in a research laboratory in France or abroad. It provides student engineers with the opportunity to make use of the knowledge and working methods gained through their theoretical and practical education in a professional environment. They will experience engineering working methods, learn how to manage a project and develop their autonomy and initiative.
The End of Studies Project also develops their sense of responsibility by submitting them to a demand for results within a pre-determined time frame. The student engineer is required to produce a report and take a viva on their project.
Each semester is worth 30 ECTS credits, spread out over the different courses completed. Students must obtain a grade of at least 10/20 in each course to obtain the credits.
