From introductions during conferences to the recruitment of engineering students as apprentices, Institut d'Optique Graduate School provides companies and students with many opportunities for working together.
Recruitment is surely the closest collaborative relationship imaginable as it allows students to learn and work at the same time.
The other work experience/internship programmes offered consist of mandatory internships/work placements during which students gain hands-on experience in their field and participate in the completion of a corporate or research laboratory project.
The creativity and drive of our engineering students may also be put to use to test prototypes of products to be developed in the Innovation and Entrepreneurs Track.
The Junior Enterprise can bring together a group of students to carry out a study for occasional technical needs.
Lastly, an Optics Forum complete with conferences is held each year to allow our students to meet future employers, customers and suppliers.
Apprenticeships are another way in which our engineering students can work on obtaining their degrees. By working for a host company, they participate in completing its projects and gain hands-on experience that benefits their training.
During their three years of studies, engineering students must demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills by completing three internship/work experience programmes. The first takes place during the summer following the end of their first year of study. The second is more advanced and takes place at the end of their second year. The third occurs at the end of their third year and provides them with the opportunity to apply the full range of knowledge they have acquired.
Recruiting a graduate is a quick and sure-fire way to enhance your company's skills.
