The Apprenticeship Designer Course (CPT)

The new “desi­gn” course focuses on various acti­vi­ties ups­tream of the pro­duct life cycle. Via an appren­ti­ce­ship scheme, we train engi­neers capable of coor­di­na­ting desi­gn pro­cesses as nee­ded for com­plex mecha­ni­cal sys­tems, for choice of appro­priate mate­rials for an indus­trial-scale pro­duct pro­duc­tion line, for sizing and inte­gra­tion, of the various com­po­nents to be assem­bled as well as asses­sing the sys­tem from a func­tio­nal point of view.

Course contents

Fol­lo­wing basic, pri­mer trai­ning in mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring (desi­gning mecha­ni­cal sys­tems, geo­me­tric model­ling, mecha­ni­cal pro­per­ties and resis­tance of mate­rials, qua­li­ty assess­ment (QA), pro­ject mana­ge­ment …) series of optio­nal add-on courses are pro­po­sed which serve to accom­pa­ny the prac­ti­cal trai­ning aspects in the fra­me­work of the ove­rall trai­ning mis­sion. They may also serve as in-depth and/or dis­co­ve­ry courses (desi­gning and crea­ting in a col­la­bo­ra­tive, inter­cul­tu­ral context, sen­sors and instrumentation …).

Other, spe­ci­fic courses are pro­po­sed to the appren­tices with a more induc­tive peda­go­gi­cal angle, focu­sing on real enter­prise pro­blems. The aim here is to deve­lop skills that enable the apprentices:

  • to model a com­plete, coherent (objec­tive set) mecha­ni­cal sys­tem in a desi­gn office context,
  • to solve indus­trial pro­blems using finite ele­ment cal­cu­la­tion techniques,
  • to ful­ly unders­tand the mecha­ni­cal beha­viour of metal­lic, poly­mers and com­po­site materials
  • to be able to cor­rect­ly frame a pro­blem in com­plex digi­tal model­ling from a struc­tu­ral dyna­mics approach,
  • to able to over­view and manage pro­jects in English and in an inter­cul­tu­ral context.

Teaching staff

This contents of the new CPT course are taught by a staff com­pri­sed of lec­tu­rer research scien­tists pos­ted to the UTC labo­ra­to­ry– Rober­val Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Mecha­nics, Acous­tics & Mate­rials Science .

They are com­mit­ted to nume­rous research pro­jects, nota­bly in part­ner­ships with major indus­trial concerns with inter­na­tio­nal span, which gua­ran­tees an excellent mat­ching bet­ween the tea­ching contents and cur­rent and fore­seeable tech­no­lo­gi­cal challenges.

Equipment and facilities

The appren­tices are trai­ned in use of indus­trial soft­ware packages: Amé­sim, Ansys, Catia v5 and v6, Créo, Mat­lab, MSC, Adams, CES Selec­tor, ABAQUS, Enoviav6, NC Simul, Pro Engi­neer, Pro Mechanica.

UTC pro­vide the appren­tices with a varie­ty of manu­fac­tu­ring and parts ins­pec­tion faci­li­ties, mecha­ni­cal test rigs, pro­to­ty­ping benches, ther­mal treat­ment, … that ensure full, high-qua­li­ty trai­ning achievements.

Missions and industrial relations

Engi­nee­ring desi­gn is inclu­ded in this appren­ti­ce­ship course. Appren­tices are paid a sala­ry by part­ner com­pa­nies. Over the 3 year per­iod, the appren­tices will alter­nate bet­ween trai­ning at UTC-Com­piegne and car­rying out mis­sions on the enter­prise pre­mises. Thanks to the strong net­work rela­tion­ships with the indus­trial envi­ron­ment, this course receives nume­rous, varied mis­sion pro­po­sals (more than 3 for each matri­cu­la­ted appren­tice) that cover nume­rous indus­trial sec­tors, job pro­files and geo­gra­phic locations.

Training abroad

In order to deve­lop a capa­ci­ty to work in an inter­na­tio­nal context, desi­gn course appren­tices must car­ry out a 12 week mis­sion abroad. The stays out­side France can take place in a pro­fes­sio­nal context rela­ted to the employer part­ner or in ano­ther context, over one or seve­ral per­iods of time.

Professional opportunities

This 'desi­gn' (CPT) course (in mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring), in the main, trains future desi­gn and deve­lop­ment engi­neers, pro­ject mana­gers, engi­neers for research and pro­duc­tion engineers.

These UTC trai­ned desi­gn engi­neers will be able to accept mana­ge­ment level appoint­ments in aero­nau­tics, space and defence sec­tors (Air­bus, Safran Air­craft Engines, Euro­cop­ter, Thales, CNES…), in auto­mo­bile manu­fac­tu­ring and ancil­la­ry equip­ment pro­vi­ders (Renault, Fau­re­cia, Miche­lin…), in ener­gy and envi­ron­ment sec­tors (Are­va, Alstom, EDF…).

  • Ave­rage time to secu­ring a first job: 1 month
  • 61% of these UTC appren­tices were assu­red of a job before the end of their appren­ti­ce­ship contract time.
