More information about ENSAM Paris
The Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers is a founding member of ParisTech made up of ten major engineering schools among some of the most prestigious.
In this context, it has adopted a brand name and is now known as "Arts et Métiers ParisTech".
High-level general engineering studies
The Arts et Métiers engineer is a qualified engineer, whose professional outlook is focused towards the design of products and production systems.
Training is articulated around the following 3 central focuses:
Mechanics, Materials, Processes
Fluids and Energy Systems
Design, Risk Management and Decision-Making
The Arts et Métiers engineers can be found in all areas of industry: Mechanical and electrical construction, steel, aviation and space, information technology, transportation, construction, telecommunications, services (SSII, consulting and audit, research and development, etc).
Learning in conjunction with industry and research
As part of their curriculum, Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineering students have to carry out a performance internship and a 6 month-industrial internship.
Initial contact with the business world, the objective being to carry out operational tasks as a performer.
Duration: 4 weeks during the 1st year
Sectors: Production or Industrial Services.
Validation of the Internship: by Arts et Métiers ParisTech
Type of Internship: Basic operator
In addition, 1st year students have the opportunity to do an internship during the months of July and August (subject to be determined with the student).
During this internship period, the engineering students make their engineering expertise available for an operational mission in a company. This internship can be carried out abroad.
Courses adapted to the career path and profile of the future engineer
The training takes place over three years (6 semesters) for most of the courses on offer. Some courses require one to two extra semesters of study.
This training is based on a common core, provided mainly during the first two years.
In the first year (semesters 5 and 6), the teaching is adapted to the various recruitment channels . All students take the same courses. Only the number of hours in each academic credit differs.
In the third year, the engineering student chooses an Expertise Unit from among the specialties taught at Arts et Métiers ParisTech.
Arts et Métiers ParisTech has a human and material potential that make it an outstanding leader both nationally and regionally.
The school can therefore provide support to a number of industrial sectors in a range of advanced technologies.
Arts et Métiers ParisTech is backed by a contractual research organization, SERAM . It is responsible for facilitating technology transfers and developing industrial applications. It participates in contract negotiation and contract management.
Arts et Métiers ParisTech is therefore able to provide industrials with the resources of its 23 laboratories (http://www.ensam.eu/en/research/laboratories ) for study and research work (products, processes...) and technical assistance.
Each Arts et Métiers ParisTech Campus is in contact with the regional businesses that facilitate creating new businesses or company buyouts. Certain campus, such as Paris and Cluny , have established their own facilities designated for business start up projects.
Most of the time, the Expertise Project concerns an actual industrial problem.
Most of these projects are initiated by a company, a research laboratory or organization that would like to utilize the skills of an Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineer student.
It is accomplished during the final year of study.
Internships, an initial contact with businesses
Working at the heart of science and technology, the Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineer demonstrates a range of skills in mechanical engineering, power engineering and industrial engineering. He offers solutions to citizens and industry leaders alike for the issues facing the industrial world and the aspirations of contemporary society.
For the student in Engineering at Arts et Métiers ParisTech, business internships are an integral part of their training. They raise student awareness of what is at stake in today’s world for people, technology and the financial challenges that must be faced. They represent an initiation into the realities of industry.
Each year of study is punctuated by an internship.
The Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineer is an expert in Product Design and Development, and Production Systems par excellence.
Diversified training makes these engineers pragmatic and multi-skilled with outstanding technical expertise.
Their interpersonal and technological training makes them a highly sought after industrial project manager. They are concerned about taking into account the social issues that must be faced in the present and in the future, in everything they accomplish.
They work in all sectors of industry: Services, Automotive, Machinery, Transport Equipment, Metal Construction, Construction, IT, Energy, Electrical Equipment, Chemical Industry, Telecommunications, Plastics, Medical Equipment, Metallurgy, Commerce, Education, Research, etc.
An Arts et Métiers ParisTech engineer is an outstanding asset for any company recruiter who is seeking the best
Promoting positive interpersonal communication
To promote positive interpersonal communication between students, industrial leaders and professors in the Education and Research Campus, Arts et Métiers ParisTech organizes a number of annual events.
Arts et Métiers Paritech is part of the n + i for more than ten years, and runs a methodological integration semester PIM in the field of mechanical engineering for students who were recruited by ENSAM, but for also some students who were recruited by other schools that will join in the second semester.
The lessons are conducted in French, and adapted to non-French speakers in the 1st semester, known as transition semester. Students become familiar with the French teaching methods, to prepare them to attend the classes with French students in the second semester.
The first year takes place at the Arts et Métiers ParisTech Campus in Paris.
The second year will be in one of the 8 Arts et Métiers ParisTech Centers, depending on the final year expertise course chosen.
Admission to Arts et Métiers PARITECH "is on file, which has previously been registered and validated on the site n + i, if possible to be followed by an interview on SKYPE.
A file online at www.nplusi.com preferably between August and October, if not before the end of March to attend the second session of recruitment.

The Arts et Métiers ParisTech Student Union
This is France's leading student association with 2,700 members and a budget of more than 4 million euros.
It brings together the other Student Union associations from the eight Education and Research Campus, and manages the activities of students in their final year in Paris.
The events are the reflection of the personal and collective commitment, multiplicity and the dynamic energy of the student engineers who, over the course of their 3 years, organize and participate in large-scale projects such as:
The Grand Gala des Arts et Métiers. Events such as the Gala evenings for each Centre: They contribute to promoting the institution’s image and student’s enthusiasm.
Skiozarts brings together nearly 1,500 European students on the slopes of the largest ski resorts in the Alps.
Gasole (Gadzarts Solidaires) represents the charitable solidarity of the Arts et Métiers ParisTech students and focuses both on disability awareness by participating in the Telethon or by working with HanditecAM to promote education in France (via its partners OPTIM and Du fer au Savoir) and abroad.
Gasole participates in major charity events such as the Telethon, the Red Cross Fund Drive, the Restos du Cœur or Sidaction, and also develops its own projects.
Gasole is represented in the 8 gadzarts student associations in France. Its range of action and the number of events it covers is prodigious.
