The profile of the State Engineer in Automation is a Bac + 5 training (3 years at the École Polytechnique for students coming from the preparatory training for the grandes écoles) whose field of application is multidisciplinary.

The trained engineer will have proven capabilities in modeling, identification, simulation, control, design and manufacture of automation devices for all types of industrial processes (electrical, aeronautical, chemical, petrochemical, steel, robotics, …). The engineer must also be able to adapt to recent major developments in the field of automation and become familiar with the latest developments in relevant software.

His thorough knowledge in the subjects considered fundamental as well as technical and/or scientific also allows him to serve inthe industry and in the scientific research.
