It was the desire to continue my studies in a more concrete way that motivated me to do a sandwich course. After two purely theoretical years, I wanted to enter the working world, the professional world, while continuing my university life. Being part of a team, having concrete responsibilities and challenges, while discovering the world of textiles every day and making the link with the training I did at school, that's what made me decide. The sandwich course brings a lot of maturity and it is a way for us, young adults, to project ourselves into professional life.
TEXTILE ENGINEER APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING
Over 3 years - BAC +5
Become an ENSAIT engineer through an apprenticeship
If you are a student, under 26 years of age, have a DUT or BTS, or have been admitted to ENSAIT through a competitive entrance examination to the Grandes Écoles (CPGE), you can sign a 3-year contract with a company to prepare for the ENSAIT engineering degree through apprenticeship.
Being an apprentice engineer at ENSAIT means benefiting from the environment of a major public engineering school, from research at the cutting edge of innovation, and from a close relationship with companies and foreign partners.
Apprenticeship training offers many positive points compared to initial training.
- The apprentice engineer is financially independent.
- With the diploma, the alternating training with the company makes it possible to value 3 years of professional experience and consequently to have a better employability with companies.
- The international culture is also developed through language stays and internships in companies or research laboratories abroad.
Objectives of the course
This training is designed to train engineers capable of innovating, designing, manufacturing and promoting the development of new materials, new technologies and new processes. ENSAIT engineers meet the requirements of the sector while respecting corporate values and environmental standards. They are capable of managing the organisational, economic, human and technical aspects of a project. They know how to choose, buy and supply in compliance with quality standards.
Support during training
Regular monitoring of the training in the company is ensured by a company tutor and a university tutor who is a teacher or research professor at the school.
Each year of study will see the acquisition of skills sought after by companies and the professional world.
Integration into the company
The apprentice engineer discovers how a company operates. Theoretical training at the school gradually makes them operational so that they can take part in company projects or missions.
Involvement in projects
Gradually, the apprentice engineer acquires technical and managerial skills to lead small projects or assist his or her engineering colleagues.
The apprentice engineer is autonomous and is in a situation where he/she is in charge of an end-of-studies project lasting approximately 6 months.
It is calculated as a percentage of the SMIC or the SMC (Salaire Minimum Conventionnel) if the latter is more favourable. It varies according to age and progression through the apprenticeship training cycle (unless the collective agreement is more favourable)
The salary varies according to age and length of contract:
* The collective agreement applied in the company or the agreement of the parties may provide for more favourable provisions in terms of remuneration.
The collective agreement applied in the company or the agreement between the parties may provide for more favourable provisions in terms of pay.

The work-study programme allows us to acquire significant experience that can be valued by our future employers. Moreover, we always learn better when we can put into practice the theory seen in class. The periods spent in companies thus complement the academic periods and give us a clearer and more precise vision of the subjects covered.
