Professional profile

ESTA students enrich their future career paths by spending nearly 2 years in companies. Each year is punctuated with an in-company placement, 5 in all, lasting from 3 to 6 months. Whether it be in France or abroad, this professional immersion enables our students to gain real knowledge of the stakes and ways of working in the professional world. Companies recruiting Esta students will benefit from qualified talents who will prove to be real assets in the implementation of large scale projects.

International cooperation

ESTA students do several placements within their study cursus allowing them to acquire a strong professional experience during their studies. Three placements are particularly interesting for international cooperation:

  • The third year placement is dedicated to marketing and/or commercial activities. It compulsively takes place in a non-French speaking country. The placement permits ESTA students to discover a new culture, to practise their English skills and to develop their network. ESTA students bring to their company a new point of view, their knowledge of the French market, and generally all the knowledge and skills acquired during their studies.
  • The fourth-year placement shall take place in a marketing department. ESTA students contribute to the marketing strategy, conduct market studies, and participate in all kinds of marketing activities. They also do project management, prepare product launches, and do other activities.
  • The last placement is the fifth year Sales Engineering placement. Students finish their academic studies and apply all their knowledge and skills for challenging result oriented missions. In parallel, they write their final diploma thesis.
