Apprenticeship engineers

Civil engineering and railway systems

France’s only engineering course specialising in civil engineering and railway systems, runs over 3-years in school/workplace and apprenticeship formats. IMT Lille Douai is authorised by the CTI to run this course and award degrees, in partnership with InGHenia.

The course is open to students holding two-year higher education diplomas (L, DUT, BTS, Special Maths).


The school prioritises teaching English and international internships.

So that apprentice-engineers make marked improvements in English, the school organises a 2-week language-learning trip to an English university at the end Year 1. The school organises and pays for this study trip, which combines practical workshops and cultural activities.

At the end of Year 2, students complete an international internship. The internship lasts 8 to 12 weeks It develops cultural openness and encourages people to use a foreign language (English being the key language), to improve independence and understanding in business.
