Surrounded by dozens of their colleagues, as well as ICT companies and financial partners, ESPRIT has from the beginning set up training courses based on intangible values:
"Responsible Learning" aims at training directly operational engineers: this involves an innovative pedagogical approach which is the Project or Problem-based learning, in particular through participation in many national and international challenges. Research and development activities in which students can be involved.
Since its creation, Esprit has been a school that is open to the greatest number of students. From the beginning, mechanisms have been put in place for talented young person, regardless of his or her social situation, to take courses and obtain his/her diploma. For two years, the school has wanted to strengthen this phenomenon by creating the Esprit Foundation which helps young people finance their studies.
The aim of the school is to train engineers who are totally in tune with the needs of the economy and companies, and go through many channels: regular meetings with professionals to take stock of the programs in order to adapt them with the real market needs; obligation for the students to carry out three internships in a company including the end of study project of a duration of seven months; setting up a "Learning Factory" that offers spaces for companies to meet students and their teachers to deploy projects related to their concerns; creation of Esprit Tech, which supports RDI (Research, Development and Innovation), enabling teachers to develop their skills through production activities at the service of companies; creation of Esprit Incubator, the incubator of startups.
