This five-year graduate engineering training course, founded jointly in 2003 by Centrale Lille and SKEMA Business School, has been revised to take into account the feedback from graduates and how their careers have developed since they left the school.
From the start of the 2019 academic year, ITEEM will thus be offering its students a new advanced learning programme for the final year of their specification, structured under three profiles: innovator, project manager or entrepreneur. In their fourth year, once they have returned from their eight-month traineeship at a company abroad, students meet with coaching and soft skills experts in one-on-one sessions to choose the profile that is the best fit for their career ambitions.
ITEEM students will have the opportunity of joining SKEMA’s Grande École programme for two years to extend their knowledge further, including on its international campuses in China, the USA and Brazil; they will thus be able to take advantage of the specialisation courses offered by SKEMA in finance, marketing, management and business and strategy.
SKEMA students who have validated their first year of the Grande École programme, hold a scientific baccalaureate and have graduated from a classe préparatoire will be able to join the third year of the ITEEM course. They will attend the final three years of the ITEEM course, including the eight-month apprenticeship abroad, and will be able to follow the three new courses on offer before completing their studies at SKEMA and validating their management degree.
“We worked in very close collaboration with each other to tailor the curriculum to suit students’ expectations while remaining faithful to ITEEM’s original teaching intentions: to train, within 5 years, versatile and independent entrepreneur engineer managers who are bound by their desire to learn,” said Emmanuel Duflos, dean of Centrale Lille.
“Our double degree course comes in response to students’ legitimate ambition to change the world. “It offers the ideal conditions for innovating and allows students to break down the barriers permanently between the universes of engineers, managers and entrepreneurs.” asserted Alice Guilhon, dean of SKEMA Business School.
