Dual-skill course

At IMT Mines Alès, you may also want to diversify your skills. Partnerships with other establishments enable the development of cross-disciplinary skills, which are highly appreciated by recruiters.

A full year in one of the partner business schools (Audencia in Nantes and Institut Mines-Télécom Business School in Evry-Paris) adds managerial skills to the technical skills of engineering students. The course leads to the award of a double diploma: IMT Mines Alès Engineer and Master Grande École of the École Supérieure de Management.

After completing part of their studies at IMT Mines Alès and the other part in one of the three partner establishments in Liège, Mons or Montpellier, students obtain a double degree in engineering and architecture in five years. This dual competence is increasingly sought after for innovative projects where architectural design and technical solutions are more and more complex.

At IMT Mines Alès, you will benefit from individual support in the construction of your professional project, because this is the heart of our mission: to give you the best possible chance of professional fulfilment.

We will provide you with the elements you need to give this professional fulfilment an environmental and socially responsible dimension.

Build a career path that reflects you

Different in your talents, different in your ambitions... Take advantage of our personalised programmes:

In parallel with your engineering training, you can register for the "D2E" student-entrepreneur diploma. You will thus be able to acquire the tools for reflection and construction to facilitate a business project and be coached during its development.


If you wish to develop a personal project throughout your studies, think about the "Fil Rouge". This will enable you to organise teaching exercises (field missions for example) around this project. This "Fil Rouge" course gives rise to an agreement between the student and the school specifying the conditions of follow-up and evaluation.

Students wishing, from the moment they enter the school, to move towards research careers (doctorate, etc.) can adapt their curriculum, with immersions in research laboratories, and internships or end-of-study projects oriented towards scientific research issues.

Open your mind, learn differently

While consolidating your technical foundations, IMT Mines Alès offers you the opportunity to discover something else, to learn about other learning methods, and to work with researchers and entrepreneurs.

One third of your schooling will be spent in a company. In addition to the internships found in all schools, IMT Mines Alès offers 3 "field missions" during your studies. They will put you in a real-life situation in a company for five consecutive weeks. You will work in teams of three on a project expressed by a company, an organization, a humanitarian association, etc.

CONTRIBUTE TO EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES AND SCHOOL SUCCESS The School attaches great importance to extra-curricular activities, and actively supports and encourages them, particularly when it comes to solidarity cooperation such as "Ingénieurs Sans Frontières" or "Tsiky zanaka", which organises a large-scale humanitarian project each year aimed at improving the living conditions of young people in developing countries through the construction of hygiene and education infrastructures. The school is also a leader in educational success schemes: whether it is the "Cordées de la réussite" or the "@ de la fraternité", you can accompany high school students in their orientation and thus contribute to equal opportunities and access to higher education for all.

DEFEND YOUR CONVICTIONS The collective "THE MOVEMENT" was launched by the students and supported by the school. Its objective is to raise awareness and mobilise students, the administration and teachers for sustainable development and ecological ethics by integrating the notion of "citizen engineer", for which the students have proposed a vision and a definition. EVENTS ARE ALSO ORGANISED: - "Meetings on International Solidarity and Citizenship" (ReSIC) organised by Ingénieurs Sans Frontière, - "Citizen Engineer Days", - "Back to School Climate Day": intended for 1st year students, this day is an opportunity to create the Climate Fresco and to be made aware of climate change and its complexity, - IMTforGood : a week of workshops on the theme of ecological and solidarity transition, - IMT Forum on digital sobriety, - Lectures by specialists proposed in 2020: Hélène MERLE-BÉRAL "The Biology of immortality: is immortal man already born? "Agnès GUILLOT "Green gold: when plants inspire innovation"; The "Nos Futurs" collective "Imagining the possibilities of climate change".

BE A PLAYER FOR A SUSTAINABLE CAMPUS THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU Participate in the working groups set up to implement and promote eco-responsible actions on campus and to develop the integration of Environmental and Social Responsibility in the school's training courses. Thanks to the initiative and investment of 2nd year students and with the support of the school, a solidarity grocery shop offers food and hygiene products at reduced prices to all students. For those who cannot afford to buy groceries, even at low prices, after contacting the social worker, they receive emergency baskets financed directly by the school.
