Industrial Engineering

Welcome to Industry 4.0! A new world in which the overall performance of companies is optimised through the design, improvement and installation of integrated systems. The IMT Nord Europe industrial engineering degree prepares you for all this and is accessed through continuing education or as an apprenticeship.

A job factory

The knowledge and skills of an industrial engineer are popular with companies looking to improve the productivity and quality of businesses. There is high demand for them, especially given that the term “industrial” also covers service companies. The scope of professions, sectors and projects is therefore very broad.

Practical training

This is a work-study course with training at IMT Nord Europe and a host company. You will be monitored by a tutor, a college teacher, who ensures there is an ongoing and formalised relationship between the apprentice and their mentor. The latter, an experienced manager in the company organises your work and monitors it. The content of the assignments and the skills assessment established between you and the company are validated by IMT Nord Europe.

Academic training

The industrial engineering course gives you the fundamental concepts in scientific, technological as well as human fields. A company work placement enables you to put all this knowledge into practice but also take responsibility or to work as part of a team. This dual teaching approach is particularly effective because you learn applied skills very quickly. It requires a significant amount of individual work, which cultivates a sense of initiative, autonomy and independence.

The teaching 

Three main parts make up the training to cover the entire scope of the skills necessary for the profession of industrial engineer:

  • Management: business organisation, project management, business strategy, innovation and creativity, English, etc.
  • Science and technology: mathematics, resistance of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, etc.
  • Technology: electrical engineering, programmable logic controllers, CAD/CAM.


To be in with a chance of joining this training program, you’ll need to follow 4 steps:

  • Submit your application here between February 1, 2024 and March 12, 2024. The application fee is €77 for the 1st course applied for, and €22 for each additional course (€22 and €11 respectively for scholarship applicants).
  • If you are selected by the pre-selection jury (results by April 2, 2024), you will be invited from April 11 to 17, 2024 to take tests and attend a motivation interview at IMT Nord Europe.
  • The list of eligible apprenticeship candidates will be issued by a jury on April 24, 2024.
  • All that remains is for you to sign an apprenticeship contract with a company, which is equivalent to final admission.

To ensure fairness between candidates, the tests are designed to give no advantage to any particular profile. And once the apprenticeship contract has been signed, there are no registration fees.

It is also possible to join the program as a continuing education student:

  • Hold a Bac +4 or higher diploma in the field.
  • For holders of a validated Bac +2/3 with a minimum of 3 years’ professional experience in the field, the candidate may be admitted via a Validation des Acquis Professionnels (VAP) after having put together a specific file that takes into account the scientific and technical skills acquired through professional experience.

To obtain the diploma, trainees must demonstrate a sufficient level of English (TOEIC 605 points minimum) at the end of the course.

Located at the heart of the Valenciennes campus (inGHenia)

Training takes place in Aulnoy-lez-Valenciennes, on the IMT Nord Europe premises of inGHenia. This structure was created by the CCI Grand Hainaut in 1992, in partnership with IMT Nord Europe, to train general engineers in industrial engineering, with a focus on production systems management.
