At ESIEE-IT, we have digital at the core. Among the main areas of expertise of the school: robotics. The establishment offers training of excellence, from post-bac to bac +5, to prepare for the exercise of the various professions in this (very) buoyant sector.

88%… This is the employment rate for ESIEE-IT students in the six months following the end of their studies. The secret of this school specializing in digital expertise? Excellence training (BTS, bachelor’s, master’s, engineering school) in areas where companies’ recruitment needs are inexhaustible: IT, home automation/Smart & Green Building, business analysis and therefore robotics.

Robotics and electronics, a buoyant sector

Let’s start with the introductions. A distinction is traditionally made between two types of robotics: on the one hand, service robotics, which aims to help people in their daily lives, and on the other hand, industrial robotics, essential in the factory of the future. ESIEE-IT aims to provide training in all of these very promising fields. It must be said that the revolutions of 5G, real-time networks, connected objects and artificial intelligence have contributed to the emergence of new projects in the fields of service robotics and industrial robotics.

ESIEE-IT’s training programs of excellence

Nestled in its modern and rural campus of Montigny-le-Bretonneux, in the Yvelines, ESIEE-IT offers training combining programming, artificial intelligence, robotics and electronics.

The course begins with a BTS in Digital Systems, Electronics and Communications option. It is aimed at holders of a general baccalaureate with a scientific, technological (STI2D) or professional (SN-MELEC) focus and trains for the professions of test technician, quality and control technician, electronics technician or even telecoms and network technician. Professions that can be found both in housing – for the problems of optimizing energy consumption –, in industry – via the development of interconnected objects – and in the tertiary sector, to simplify access for service users. Among the main missions of these technicians of a new kind: setting up a hardware or software solution, manufacturing or repairing printed circuits, wiring, integrating and configuring electronic equipment, etc.

Then place to the industrial robotics professional license of the CNAM. This training, as its name suggests, is dedicated to industrial robotics. This is a fundamental strategic issue insofar as the speed of execution and the precision of an industrial robot make it possible to increase productivity and limit the difficulty of the work. There are two groups of industrial robots: assembly robots and mobile robots, associated with artificial intelligence, which focus on inspection missions. The professional license trains in particular for the professions of automation technician, production line installer or maintenance manager. So many profiles that imply a high level of engineering expertise. It is indeed a question of mastering skills in automation, mechanics and robotics in order to be able to install, operate and repair a robot.

Finally, the ESIEE-IT offers a bac +5 level training specializing in robotics entitled Manager in Computer Engineering, Robotics and Technological Innovation. It draws its raison d’être from the ongoing development of the connected objects market and aims to train managers who can both design and integrate robots, as well as develop innovative technological solutions. Among the targeted professions, there are positions such as project manager in automation and robotics, new technology integrator, robotics or vision designer, designer of technological solutions, robotics and mechatronics engineer, etc. The subjects studied in class, meanwhile, have nothing to envy to a good science fiction film: artificial intelligence, programming, object design, mobile assistance robot, humanoids, industrial robots, robotic design and prototyping, modeling 3D, vision (image processing, virtual reality, augmented reality), etc.

A pedagogy in tune

This is a constant at ESIEE-IT: all the courses rely on action-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, the students are not in lecture halls, they manipulate objects, carry out practical cases and tutored projects. They also put their learning into practice during work-study periods. This is present at all levels and allows you to benefit from free and paid training. ESIEE-IT places its vast network (more than 1,000 partner companies) at the disposal of its students to enable them to find the contract suited to their ambitions.
