Engineering projects (PING)

You want to develop, realize or prototype your idea/project?
The Engineering projects allow you to benefit from the expertise of our engineering students (bac+4) and the support of Télécom Saint- Étienne’s research professors to turn your idea into reality.

The subjects given can cover all the school’s fields:

Computer science
AI, big data, applications, web, machine learning..

sensors, automation, embedded systems, connected objects..

telecom architecture, telecommunication..

cybersecurity, routing, servers, coding, transmission..

optics, laser processes..

image analysis and processing, 3D imaging, biomedical imaging..

The principle :

A team of 4 to 5 students (bac+4) works on your project to develop it, to prototype it, to propose a solution, a concrete tool.

First thing to do: submit your project, which is studied by the school’s teaching team.
If it is selected, you will present it during a pitch session. In the following weeks, 2 creation sessions called SPRINT are organised.

SPRINT 1: This first SPRINT of one week allows to launch the realization and to validate the effectiveness of the collaboration between the company and the team.

SPRINT 2: This second two-week SPRINT allows production to be carried out, the tool to be developed and the project to be prototyped.

During the whole period, the team of students will work the equivalent of 700 hours, accompanied by a teacher-researcher and a company tutor.
To conclude the projects and to enhance the value of their work, the teams present their results at a presentation.

Chronology April to June

Innovation Research Project (IRP)

The Research and Innovation Projects enable you to benefit from the expertise of engineering students (5 years of higher education) and the support of Télécom Saint-Étienne’s research professors. The aim is to explore, experiment and study the feasibility of your idea or project or to respond to your problem through reflection and the provision of concrete solutions and tools.
