OBJECTIVES

The department of civil engineering offers an extremely broad program in the areas of geotechnics and civil engineering. This double competence opens up a large range of employment prospects for graduates in all areas of civil engineering, from the design of works to their realisation. Engineers from this program are capable of successfully carrying through the different construction phases, specifically the design, analysis, calculation and realisation of different civil engineering works. The program is constantly being adapted to the needs of companies by taking into account the evolution of techniques and methods.

 

 

PROGRAM

During semesters 5 and 6, the program focuses mainly on the fundamentals of civil engineering, earth sciences (geology, soil mechanics, underground hydraulics) and technical courses (site organisation, concrete, excavations…).

In semesters 7 and 8, the student broadens his/her knowledge of geotechnics and structural calculations, while also taking a course in site calculations (concrete structures, pre-stressed concrete, metallic constructions…).

In semesters 9 and 10, the student specializes in one of the following areas::

  • Urban engineering : regulations, renovation, roads and utilities and urban site works.
  • Design in civil engineering : planning, conception, urbanism and the environment.
  • The lifecycle of works : new materials in civil engineering, resistance and ageing of materials, detecting and repairing sites

Special works : underground works, seismic structures, supporting works and reinforcement.

These classes, which take the form of workshops, are given by professionals.

SECTORS OF ACTIVITY AND COMPANIES

  • Construction and public works companies (BOUYGUES, VINCI, EIFFAGE, RAMERY, RABOT DUTHILLEUL, SPIE-BATIGNOLLES, …),
  • Engineering, design offices (OTH, SOVEP, SOGREAH…),
  • Soil mechanics and geophysics offices (SIMECSOL, MENARD, …),
  • Control offices (SOCOTEC, APAVE, QUALICONSULT, VERITAS, …),
  • Para-public sector (BRGM, EDF, SNCF, …)
  • Local communities, administrations (LMCU, municipal technical departments, CETE, …),
  • Research and Development (TOTAL, ANDRA, …).

 

MAIN PROFESSIONS OPEN TO NEW GRADUATES

The range of employment perspectives open to graduates is extremely large. An engineer from this program can intervene in any stage of the construction process, from the study of the soil to the completion of the project:

  • Soil study, calculation of foundations,
  • Design of the site (calculations, methods, examination of the costs),
  • Implementation of works  (conception of the shell, finishings, interacting with trade associations, specialized works),
  • Technical control, QSE (Qualité Sécurité Environnement – Quality Security Environment), …
  • Project management (managing the project, contracting).

PROJECTS LINKED TO COMPANIES OR LABORATORIES

  • Multidisciplinary projects in 3rd year (50h),
  • Case studies in 4th year, supervised by professionals, focusing on site organisation (75h) and the design and sizing of sites (75h),
  • Final-year project of between 4 and 6 months in a company.

LINKS WITH RESEARCH

The lecturers in this program mainly carry out their research in geomechanics, within the « Laboratoire de Mécanique de Lille « (LML) and the « Laboratoire Génie Civil et Géo-Environnement« (LGCGE). The areas studied are: the construction of tunnels on moveable ground, deep tunnels, foundations, soil reinforcement, petrol engineering, deep storage, THMC behaviour of rocks and concretes.

After training to be an engineer, the students can continue their studies via a PhD, often in collaboration with industry, or via a specialized advanced Masters in water engineering, in conjunction with an industrial partner.
