Engineering and Business Science (cooperative option)

Offered as a co-operative (apprentice) option, « Engineering and Business Science” enables you to obtain two skills profiles in technology and management. As a 3rd year option, this course complements the technology training received in the 1st and 2nd years.

Acquired a double skills set in technology and management

  • Project management
  • Strategy
  • Managing teams
  • Innovation
  • ...

The program associates the technical skills of the engineer with strong managerial culture, enabling the graduates to access greater responsibilities within companies and public bodies.

The future engineers are trained in analysing economic, political and legal environments to enable them to craft a project strategy that factors in the key considerations and perceived opportunities.

Instruction in the fields of project management, business engineering and innovation management is combined with special course themes focusing on performance management.

According to their professional project, the students can also choose between two profiles :

  • project performance management
  • entrepreneurship 
Students in this major can choose to simultaneously take the courses of the double degree track of the Master in Business Management and Administration at the Institut d’Administration des Entreprises (IAE) of the Université Bretagne Occidentale (UBO)

My background being essentially geared towards science and technology, I fancied combining these skills with management. In the 3rd year, I combined the Vehicle Architecture specialization with the Engineering and Business Science program. That enabled me to further my knowledge in business and managerial techniques.
