ENGINEERS WITHOUT BORDERS
ESTIA stands for the Institute of Advanced Industrial Technologies.
ESTIA is part of the Bayonne Basque Country Chamber of Commerce & Industry. It trains engineers with solid scientific and technological knowledge in mechanics, electronics, energy systems and advanced computer science.
Students choose one of three specialisations:
. Digital Design & Innovation: mechanical, electronic and computer development
. Electronics, Automation & Embedded systems: image processing, mobile robots, renewable energies
. Industrial Management & Organisation: industrialisation, global logistics, performance management
In addition to the ESTIA engineering degree, the first two options lead to an MSc (Master of Science) from a British University (Cranfield, Wolverhampton or Salford-Manchester) and the third leads to an engineering Master degree from the Bilbao School of Engineering (Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Bilbao)(1).
Our students benefit from:
. A systemic wide-ranging scientific, technological and human training in mechanics, electronics, energies and advanced computing, management, soft science and economics.
. Teaching in French, English and Spanish. Our courses enable students who have never studied Spanish to quickly acquire the basics when entering ESTIA before providing them with a good degree of proficiency.
. A privileged location on the Basque Coast
. A second diploma: in addition to the ESTIA engineering diploma, students are in parallel prepared for European masters degrees (1)
. ESTIA is certified ISO9001.
(1) MSc in "Software Techniques for CAE" at Cranfield University (GB), MSc in "Advanced Technology Management" at the University of Wolverhampton, MSc in "Robotics & Automation" at the University of Salford-Manchester (GB), and the "Industrial Engineer" diploma at the Bilbao School of Engineering (E).
NUMEROUS JOB OPPORTUNITIES
In all branches thanks to wide ranging skills in engineering, project management and innovation, in addition to the ESTIA's systemic approach. Throughout the world thanks to a trilingual course in French, English and Spanish.
ESTIA has decided to join the n+i network in year 2009, ans was accepted as a member since then. ESTIA wants to use this efficient network to recruit the best foreign candidates.
We receive applications continuously throughout the year and the deadline for a start in September of year "n" would be in May of the same year.
There are currently no study grants available for foreign students.
COST FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS :
€ 5.800 year1, € 6.200 year 2 with student status covering travel and accommodation for periods of study and enrolment fees at our British and Spanish partner institutions, etc.
In short, an international course with a dual diploma at a truly advantageous rate.
To finance their studies students can benefit from bank loans at a preferential rate of 1.5 % repayable at a later date.
Student accommodation on the Basque Coast
Every year we receive some 20 foreign students: they are all warmly welcomed, to date all have successfully graduated.
Our membership of the n+i networks goes back to 2009. We will for the first time recruit students thanks to n+i for the academic year 2010/11. We will attend them very carefully.
Cranfield University (UK)
Located to the north of London, in Bedfordshire, Cranfield University has become a pilot centre
