Ingénieur Grande Ecole

Presentation

Founded in 1920 as one of the French Grande École of Engineering, Institut d’Optique Graduate School is a founding member of ParisTech.
Its international reputation is built on high quality academic and practical education, major scientific contributions of its research centre, and close ties with industry.
With an intake of over 100 students per year,
Institut d’Optique Graduate School offers the broadest scope in the field of optical sciences and engineering in Europe. It is now of the largest in terms of degrees awarded. It is a major research centre in the field of theoretical and applied optics and photonics.
Institut d’Optique Graduate School is established on three campuses, in Palaiseau (near Paris), Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne.
Institut d’Optique Graduate School is recognised under French law as being of public utility and is under the supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

  • A Prestige programme

    Institut d’Optique Graduate School offers original engineering courses that combine top-level scientific and experiment-based teaching with training in general engineering skills as well as hands-on experience in the corporate world. The graduated students have this way a wide range of prospects in many different sectors.

    This course is accredited by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI) , an independent organisation under French law that authorises engineering education. The School is also a founding member of ParisTech.

  • Admissions

    The engineering students at Institut d’Optique Graduate School are selected through the ParisTech roving international competition. The procedure is the same for all ParisTech Schools of Engineering and primarily concerns students in Asia, South America and Russia.

  • Curriculum

    Institut d’Optique Graduate School trains top-level engineers for careers in research and development, engineering and management of high technologies that are evolving rapidly in optics and photonics.Their remarkable integration in the professional world is ensured by :

    Top-level education in multiple scientific and technical fields;

    Training in general engineering skills and hands-on experience in the corporate arena;

    International internships and double degrees earned at foreign universities.

  • Labwork

    Labwork makes up a significant portion of the time spent by engineering students and master’s students. Courses are constantly updated and expanded to reflect the most recent advances in research in all areas of modern optics.

  • Devenir ingénieur par l'apprentissage

    13 promotions d'ingénieurs "SupOptique" formés par l'apprentissage. Une grande école et ses partenaires industriels dans une formation plébiscitée par les entreprises et les apprentis.

  • Devenir ingénieur-entrepreneur

    La Filière Innovation-Entrepreneurs (FIE) forme les élèves à entreprendre et innover grâce à une pédagogie par projet portée par les étudiants eux-mêmes. Ils pilotent et développent des projets de création d’entreprises en photonique dès la 2e année du cycle d’ingénieur.

  • Département des langues

    The languages section is an integral and lively part of the school.
    English is compulsory and the training is rigorous so as to make it a reliable and efficient tool for all kinds of scientific and professional communication.
    Courses in French for all those working at the Institut d'Optique Graduate School and whose native language is not French.

  • Stages

    Engineering students are required to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills during three internships: a summer internship lasting at least 4 weeks at the end of their first year, an advanced internship lasting at least 11 weeks at the end of their second year, and a final internship of up to six months at the end of their third year and during which they must use the knowledge they have acquired during the course of their training.

Vous préparez un TIPE

Depuis plus de 10 ans, chercheurs et enseignants de l’Institut d’Optique répondent aux nombreuses demandes et questions des étudiants en classe préparatoire qui préparent un TIPE lié au domaine de l’optique. Plus d’une centaine d’élèves peuvent chaque année assister à une séance de Travaux Pratique sur un sujet proche de leur TIPE avec des élèves-ingénieurs et encadrée par les enseignants de SupOptique.
