An important French Engineering School, Supélec is a benchmark in the field of information and energy sciences. It constitutes a privileged pathway leading to all economic sectors.
On an international level, Supélec can be compared to the most prestigious'Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Departments of the major European and American Universities. The quality of the engineers who earn their diplomas here each year is recognised world-wide. The main part of recruitment is made through a competitive examination which is held following the completion of the 'Classes Préparatoires', along with recruitment through academic qualifications, of French or foreign students.
Engineer training constitutes the main mission of the School. It lasts three years, after two to four years of post-baccalaureate training. The School also proposes several post-graduate and doctoral training programs.
Training programs offered are:
Supélec aims at training engineers with high scientific and technical levels, ready to take on diversified responsibilities in the enterprise.
This training consists of three main lines: knowledge of the enterprise, a vast scientific and technical culture, and thorough knowledge and know-how in one of the School’s fields of expertise.
The key word in the composition of a Supélec degree course is 'balance': between scientific and technical training programs, between vast general knowledge and competency in a speciality, between the exercise of capacities of abstraction and the development of a taste for the concrete.
The place given to human and social education, knowledge of the enterprise, to communication and the mastery of foreign languages, not forgetting the importance given to the sciences and techniques, show this desire: at Supélec, this makes up more than a third of the instruction programmed on the timetable.
Through projects, inductive educational methods cultivate a sense of reality, a taste for the concrete and for innovation. The capacities of analysis, conception, and realisation are methodically developed in order to acquire the mastery of complex systems.
Finally, creativity, the entrepreneurial spirit, a sense of responsibility, the aptitude to communicate and openness to other international cultures are strongly stimulated.
