Organization of the academic year

The program:

  • Spans over 5 years after the Scientific Baccalaureate,
  • 2 years of integrated preparatory classes then 3 years in the engineering specialization cycle,
  • The 3rd year (S5 and S6) is a year of general education with a substantial amount of practicums.
  • Semester 7 is focused on energy, semester 8 on renewable energies, the entire 4th year is structured around industrial calculation software.
  • Semester 9 focuses on the R&D project.
  • Semester 10 is reserved for the end-of-study project (engineering internship).

As part of welcoming foreign exchange students from partner universities or sending our students, we have established a matching between modules and ECTS credits   for information purposes.

A special emphasis is placed on language proficiency, particularly French in the integrated preparatory classes and English in the engineering specialization cycle.


The STPI integrated preparatory cycle  is divided into 4 semesters (1st year and 2nd year) with 4 modules per semester, i.e. a total of 16 modules for semesters S1 to S4.

In the succession of the modules proposed in the preparatory cycle, the modules are synthesized and harmonized in order to better interface the concepts and knowledge between the basic disciplines in preparation for engineering training: mathematics, physics and chemistry, mechanics, EAS and applied computer science.                 

For a perfect articulation of the modules and in particular a coherence between the preparatory cycle and the engineering cycle, we have organized them into major disciplines.

The E2R Engineer Specialization Cycle is divided into 6 semesters over three years. In order to maintain continuity and stay within the "semester logic", the semesters of the engineering cycle begin in S5 and end in S10:

  • Semesters S5 and S6 are general education semesters with extensive practical training,
  • Semester S7 is focused on energy, semester S8 on renewable energies, the entire 4th year is structured around industrial calculation software,
  • Semester S9 focuses on the Research and Development Project (FDP).
  • Semester 10 is reserved for the end-of-study project (PFE) in the form of an engineering internship in a company or in an R&D laboratory.


  • A mini-project in the 3rd year focusing on an energy-related theme.
  • The R&D project in the 5th year.


  • A 4 to 6-week workers' internship at the end of the second year,
  • A 5 to 6-week technical internship at the end of the 3rd year,
  • An introductory internship in R&D in a laboratory in semester 8, once a week for 8 weeks,
  • The end of study project in semester 10 from 4 to 6 months.


  • The ECINE engineering program includes one semester in France. Semester 8 is spent at the University of Lorraine for the entire graduating class,
  • Within the framework of the agreement between the University of Lorraine and the International University of Rabat, there are three possibilities: either complete the first semester of the 5th year at the Ecole des Mines or ENSEM, or complete the 4th and 5th year at the EEIGM or ENSEM, or complete the 5th year at the Faculty of Science and Technology of Nancy as part of a double degree,
  • ECINE education is underpinned by several pillars, including practical work and scientific and industrial calculation codes strongly recommended by companies.

Each semester from S5 to S9 consists of 6 modules.

The overall course outline is described as follows:

ACCESS, three possibilities to attend ECINE:

  • First year, Mathematics and Physics test, motivation interview.
  • Second year, selection by application, interview in mathematics, physics and engineering sciences
  • Third year, selection by application, interview in mathematics, physics and engineering sciences.
