Mastères Spécialisés® (Advanced Masters)
Professional assignment (4 to 6 months with possibility of alternating with work)
Pursuing a subject in depth and implementing analytical and conceptual capacities within a professional context.
Legislation and agreement
Internships offered within the context of an engineering degree or Mastère Spécialisé® (Advanced Masters) program are an integral part of an educational curriculum.
The School allows students on the engineering program to undertake additional internships if justified by their educational needs. All these internships are covered by a three-way internship agreement between the host organization, the student intern, and the learning institution. This agreement sets out the relations between the parties and is binding on the signatories.
In any internship lasting more than two months the intern is entitled to remuneration. This amount is set at 15 % of the hourly social security ceiling for public service internships. This is a minimum amount for private entities.
