The Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Industries Textiles trains engineers specialized in fibers and textile materials. Hosting an ENSAIT student-engineer on an internship will allow you to recruit profiles adapted to your projects and to identify future engineers likely to complete the ranks of your employees.

Technician internship (BAC +3)

8 to 12 weeks

Students in their 1st year of engineering studies


You will benefit from the skills of an engineering student, in his first year of training, initiated to the basic techniques of textiles, in a technical position. The missions entrusted to the student in internship can be of a technical, scientific or organizational nature.

During the internship period, the student engineer is expected to actively participate in the actions of one of the company’s departments

  • Style/creation: participation in the creation of a collection (pattern making, collection follow-up, etc.), etc. ;
  • Research and development: carrying out tests, helping to set up test or formulation protocols, helping to develop technical data sheets, etc;
  • Production: sampling and monitoring of production in the workshop, work on the production line, etc.; and
  • Support functions: purchasing (sourcing), logistics
  • Quality control: tests and trials in laboratories, controls at reception, visit fabrics, colorimetry, creation of a weaving library / defect library, etc.

The technician training course is intended to make the student take responsibilities at the level of supervisor or technician by its integration in a team of technicians or by the work under the direct responsibility of an engineer.

End of studies projects (bac +5)

Period :

  • Duration of 18 to 25 weeks to be carried out between mid-February and mid-September.

Objectives :

You benefit from the skills of a student engineer in the realization of a project. The student calls upon external contributors. This project includes scientific, technological or technico-economic aspects and can allow you to judge the abilities of a (possible) future collaborator.

If you wish, the School manages the confidentiality of the subjects within a contractual framework.

F.A.Q. Internships

Internships are “temporary periods of work experience in a professional environment during which the student acquires professional skills and implements what he or she has learned”.

The internship is integrated into the student’s course of study “with a view to obtaining a diploma or certification and promoting professional integration”.

There are three parties involved in the completion of an internship:

  • the trainee,
  • ENSAIT, the training institution 
  • The host organization, which can be a company of any size or a laboratory

“The trainee is entrusted with one or more missions in accordance with the pedagogical project defined by his/her educational institution and approved by the host organization.

The teacher in charge of the training establishment and the internship tutor communicate with each other and ensure that the internship runs smoothly. The referent teacher is required to check with the tutor “several times during the placement to ensure that it is going well and to propose to the host organization, if necessary, a redefinition of one or more tasks that can be carried out”.

The trainee receives an hourly bonus which is neither a salary, nor an allowance. The amount of the bonus corresponds to 15% of the social security ceiling, i.e. 3.90€ per hour (26€ x 0.15). It must be paid to the trainee from 2 months and 309 hours of presence in the company.

The duration of the internship must be less than 6 months per teaching year for the same intern in the same entity.

For first year students, the duration is 8 weeks and the internship period runs from May 31, 2021 to September 03, 2021.

For second year students, the duration is 12 weeks and the internship period runs from May 19, 20121 to September 24, 2021

The Education Code (Articles L. 124-1 to L. 124-20) and the Charter for student internships in companies specify the reciprocal commitments of the signatories of the agreement. The intern is not counted in the workforce, but the internship agreement is entered in a specific list in the personnel register.


The internship agreement must contain the following elements:


  1. The full title of the intern’s course of study or training and its hourly volume per year or semester of instruction,
  2. The activities entrusted to the trainee,
  3. The names of the referent teacher and the tutor,
  4. The start and end dates of the internship and the maximum weekly attendance time of the intern,
  5. The terms and conditions of leave of absence,
  6. The hourly rate of the bonus, calculated on the basis of the trainee’s actual presence, and the terms of its payment,
  7. Any benefits that the trainee may be entitled to (catering, accommodation or reimbursement of expenses, etc.),
  8. The social protection system from which the trainee benefits, particularly in the event of a work-related accident.

At the end of the internship, a report is drawn up with the company tutor who evaluates and validates the intern’s skills via the “evaluation of the student-engineer” form: know-how, interpersonal skills, ability to mobilize skills to achieve the set objectives, results obtained. The internship is also evaluated by a written report and an oral presentation. Validation of the internship through these three components is essential for obtaining the ENSAIT diploma.
