An innovative program closely aligned with industrial requirements

The modern aeronautical and automotive industries need engineers who have more than the traditional technical skills. They need to acquire the latest and most technologically advanced numerical simulation skills and the future industrial requirements to be able to work in an international environment. ESTACA offers a one semester program in Computer Aided Engineering and Design (CAED) applied to the Aeronautical and Automotive sectors.The objective of this program is to provide students with the means of achieving high quality design, cost reduction and best time-to-market skills. Combining the training in CAED and its immediate application to a design project carried out in an international team optimizes the training period for maximum results, after which the students are immediately operational. International students will also have a unique opportunity to study and learn the French language and culture.

Practical Information
Eligibility: This program is open to all foreign students holding a Bachelor Degree or having completed three years of studies in an Engineering Program. Applicants should have English language proficiency (TOEFL: 510 or TOEIC: 750) Certificate of Completion: A certificate equivalent to 30 ECTS will be given to students who complete the entire program. The academic performance is assessed according to exams, project evaluation, reports, attendance and class participation. Tuition Fees: 3 500 Euros Admission process Application available on the website Deadline for application: December 31st All administrative formalities will be facilitated by ESTACA
