The international experience

Illustration stages

The engineering students at ITECH have 5 possibilities to do an international experience:

  • International Experience (summer job, au pairing, humanitarian mission) at the end of 1st Year (6 to 13 weeks)
  • Technical internship at the end of 2nd Year (2 to 3 months)
  • End of studies internship at the end of 3rd Year (5 to 6 months)
  • Exchange semester in a partner university
  • Option 1 year or at least 6 months abroad (university or company) between 2nd and 3rd year.

Students doing their internship abroad are mainly in a company:

  • 30% of each class of students go abroad for more than 6 months:
    • Within an industrial immersion between 6 and 12 months
    • Within the case of an end of studies project (5 to 6 months)
  • 25% go for 2 to 3 months:
    • International internship at the end of 1st year
    • Or a technical internship at the end of 2nd year

For European destinations, students benefit from European grants “Leonardo/ERASMUS.”

For other world destinations, students can benefit from the regional grant EXPLO’RA.

We are partners with Club TELI, an organization which gathers international internship offers. Here’s the link to take advantage of these offers:

I lived for 2 and a half years in Lausanne, Switzerland. I worked at Sicpa, leader in the security inks market. This position represented for me a gateway into the working world. Don’t be afraid to become an expat to find your first job. In a company, be creative and concise. It will be the key to your success. Choose a small to medium company if you like taking initiatives and being autonomous. Build your professional network and keep a maximum of contacts.
