ESME’s multi-disciplinary programs are supported by our state-of-the-art laboratories, where our students develop their research skills and learn about the industrial business world. This on-going contact enriches our curriculum and prepares students for their future careers.
5 LABS AND NuMERouS FIELDS
THE ENERGY, SYSTEMS AND ENVIRONMENT LABORATORIES
The Energy, Systems and Environment Lab teaches students about the various industrial systems involved in the production, operation, transportation and distribution of conventional and/ or renewable electricity. These include the new “smart grid” technologies, as well as advanced control systems for complex mechatronic systems and the development and design of industrial, domestic and bio-mechanical robotic systems.
THE DIGITAL AND DATA INTELLIGENCE LAB
The Digital and Data Intelligence Lab covers a broad spectrum of career possibilities in all sectors of the industry, and in all areas of work: creating enterprise-level software, administration and optimization of information, analyzing and processing banking information, creating tools for securities traders, designing multi-media signals, processing software and developing complex artificial intelligence systems and neural networks, among others.
The Digital and Data Intelligence Lab has expanded its activities to include cross-disciplinary projects integrated with the other three ESME laboratories. Digital technology is the foundation of many other areas such as robotics, embedded systems and image processing.
THE EMBEDDED AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS LABORATORIES
The Embedded and Electronic Systems Lab focuses on designing digital electronic systems through continuous technological monitoring. Our laboratories brings in participants from the industrial business world, including the automotive, defense and aeronautics sectors. From on-board computers in cars, to software security, to micro-controller programming, embedded systems engineers acquire the most relevant skills on demand by companies.
THE IMAGES, SIGNALS AND NETWORKS LABORATORIES
The Images, Signals and Networks Lab works in two distinct fields: they are separate, but nevertheless correlated and complementary. In the field of image and signal processing, the lab works in areas related to the defense, medical, and security sectors, training engineers who can solve high-level scientific problems. In the network field, the lab covers a broad scope of skills, from enterprise networks to mobile networks. Our engineers are trained to design, maintain and develop modern communication devices.
THE E-SMART LAB
As digital and physical technologies converge, “things” can take on digital capabilities, and digital designs can immediately lead to a physical object. This inspired us at ESME to create our E-Smart lab, in the spirit of MIT’s Fab Lab. Using machines such as 3D printers and laser cutters, the E-Smart lab allows our students to bring their ideas to life . Even our preparatory program students can create their own prototypes.
Founded in 1905, ESME trains multidisciplinary engineers, important professionals in the sectors of the technologies of the future: energy, systems and environment; on-board systems and electronics; images, signals and networks, digital intelligence and data. Its modern teaching method is derived from three components: the importance of innovative spirit; the omnipresence of projects and initiative; and a resolutely international, human, and cultural outlook. Since its creation, more than 14,000 engineers have graduated from its courses. ESME delivers a Master of Engineering certified by the Engineering Education Commission (CTI) and recognized internationally as a Master of Science.
