Saint-Denis – Moufia Campus

Type of training : Licence

Training regime: Initial formation

Training summary

The Engineering Sciences (SPI) major aims to provide solid multidisciplinary training, through two specialties: digital energy and robotics/instrumentation and digital simulation, in the scientific and technological fields of energy, electronics, automation, signal processing and embedded systems, both theoretically and practically (thanks to project-based teaching from License 1 to License 3, and practical work).

Training aims

The pedagogy of the SPI License is based on the project approach from the 1st year to the 3rd year (project team, project management tools, oral presentations, milestones, etc.). The major and minor teaching units rely on this structure to provide knowledge in their respective fields. The projects concern energy, solar, robotics, digital, measurement, instrumentation. With, for example, possible applications: the optimization of solar energy collection, the study of a digital weather station, the processing of measurement data in Python, robotics and the Arduino platform, etc.

Advantages of the training

This License allows a plurality of career and study opportunities in the fields of energy, embedded systems, electronics, automation, industrial computing, robotics, research or technology. 'education.

Summary of lessons by course

The SPI License aims to provide teaching related to engineering professions in different fields of physics. It addresses different aspects of mechanics, electronics, robotics, digital and computer sciences, but also the exploitation of thermal, electrical and even electromagnetic energies.

After a common core in License 1, options allow you to differentiate between two specialties:

  • SPI License - Digital Instrumentation and Simulations (ISN), centered around the modeling of physical systems, particularly in the fields of electronics, electrical energy and multi-physics systems.

  • and the SPI License - Digital Energy and Robotics (ENR), focused on the use of microprogrammed systems, robotics (programming and controls).




The training is based on the development of projects which are the basis of the lessons taught each semester. The training therefore includes six project periods corresponding to the six semesters of the License.

Specific devices

License 1 SPI – Individualized course 1:
As part of this individualized course, the first year of the Bachelor's degree is carried out in the classic way in one year

License 1 SPI – Individualized course 2:
As part of this individualized course, the first year of the Bachelor's degree is also completed in one year. The particularity of this course consists in the fact that methodological support is added to the lessons. Methodological support is mandatory and takes place throughout the year. Several techniques are presented to students in order to be able to implement good university working methods as early as possible.

License 1 SPI – Individualized course 3:
As part of this individualized course, the first year of the degree is completed over two years. This path is planned to allow students who need it to reduce the workload per year. The lessons of the first year of the Bachelor's degree are therefore spread over two years rather than just one.

Conditions of access to training

Bachelor's degree or equivalent

Continuing Studies

Masters, specialized schools or major schools in the following fields: energy, embedded systems, electronics, automation, industrial IT, industrial, robotics, research, teaching.
