Telecommunications and IT engineer

Train your senior technicians in the profession of telecommunications and IT engineering. In 20 years, more than 1,000 employees have obtained IMT Lille Douai’s continuous training degree. Created with blended learning (face-to-face and distance learning), it allows professionals to remain available to their company and their family.

The preparatory cycle

The preparatory cycle facilitates the return of professionals to a training context and provides them with the necessary prerequisites (mathematics, computer science, probability, electronics). It alternates between self-training (in one’s own time), distance learning courses via the Internet, and meetings at the IMT Lille Douai site.

Curriculum

The engineering training specialising in telecommunications and IT runs for around 30 months, including 6 months spent on company projects. For each UV, the course combines face-to-face at IMT Lille Douai (Lille site) and distance learning via a self-training platform.

The week of school attendance takes place once every two months in the first part of the course and once every month at the end of the course. This minimises the indirect costs linked to the unavailability and travel of employees undertaking their training.

Distance training consists of 3 hours of supervised lessons per week and tutoring via a platform. It also includes self-study during one’s own time with resources and a discussion forum provided.

  • Written tests over one day assess the candidate’s ability to acquire knowledge rather than assessing their knowledge;
  • The oral test in front of a panel validates the consistency of the professional project and the suitability of the candidate profile with the criteria of IMT Lille Douai;
  • The admissions panel makes a final decision using the application file, the results of previous tests and the results obtained in the assessments of the refresher course preparatory cycle.
