Throughout the length of the engineering course, placements are compulsory and form an integral part of the Professional Project of each student-engineer. These periods spent inside a company, a research laboratory or a public body, enable them to develop their general, technical and managerial skills. They end with the student writing a report and presenting it orally; both are assessed.

The Employment Survey 

Each year, a survey of employment draws up statistics on the job situation of the last two years of graduates. These enquiries are undertaken at the initiative of the CGE, Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and of the Gay Lussac federation of 20 schools of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. These surveys serve to analyse the professional success of recent graduates from the ENSCR and to support the constant educational debate that goes on within the school’s academic committee. In addition, the ENSCR continuously monitors new graduates each year.

See the results of the CGE surveys for 2013 and 2014.

The sectors of employment which graduates of the ENSCR enter are recorded each year.

Personal accounts

(Clarisse LE GALL, 2014 year, engineer and project manager for the Société de Travaux Antilles-Guyane)

“In my last year of EPA, I specialised in Processes and Processes for the environment with an option in analyses for the environment. My last placement with SOURCES meant I could finish my training as the engineer in charge of dealing with tenders for the construction and rehabilitation of waste-water and drinking-water treatment stations. This placement led to me being recruited, in Guadeloupe by the company SO.TR.A.G, (a civil engineering company in the West Indies and Guyana), in a similar position as an engineer and project manager. Now, as well as dealing with tenders I monitor the current construction projects, tenders successfully bid for, and smaller worksites, and commercial development in the region of Guadeloupe. Thanks to the ENSCR, its network of ex-students and its contacts with businesses, I found it easy to settle into my career.”
