Associations and Clubs

Many associations & clubs are managed by students: the Student Union (BDE), the Sports Club (BDS), and many others. Each year, students invest a lot of their time in humanitarian associations (e.g. solidar’ITECH).

Students are free to create any club they’d like: sports, cultural, gastronomy…

ITECH strongly encourages students to participate in different activities, keeping a healthy balanced lifestyle between studies and community life…

This demands being able to manage time with limited means. Searching for sponsors allows students to involve themselves in the financial management of their activities. Taking on responsibility, decision making, searching for new ideas and managing a team make useful values that contribute to the path of a future engineer.

4L Trophy


The 4L Trophy™ is an Adventure Foray in the Moroccan desert reserved for students with Renault 4L cars. Young students in search of an adventure get to live a unique experience putting together sporting challenges, a change of scenery and solidarity.
Solidarity comes into play as the goal of the 4L Trophy™ is also to bring school and sporting supplies to the most impoverished children of Morocco. Over the years, this formula has made the 4L Trophy ™ the largest student sporting and humanitarian event in Europe! Every year, an ITECH team participates in this excursion..


Created and run by ITECH students, the Improv Club is open to all people passionate about acting and comedy, but also those who would like to better themselves in communication and in improving their confidence. Cultural excursions, evenings of discovery, and battles between amateurs are proposed throughout the year. As said by John Muir “The power of imagination makes us infinite.”
