The Business Relations Department notably deals with:
forming partnerships between Génie industriel and companies or laboratories
arranging meetings and contact possibilities between students, professors, researchers and businesses
organising special events between companies and our school (e.g. visits of companies or laboratories, conferences given by engineers, seminars, talks given by guest-speakers, presentations during lessons, careers days etc...) For details of these special events, please read more
coordinating industrial placements and all enquiries concerning these internships & projects which are a major part of the Engineering curriculum
creating privileged partnerships with companies who wish to join the Industrialists Club' and actively participate in the school by helping develop courses, sharing expertise, offering internships and employment
Many other services exist between our school and partnership companies:
Research contracts: researchers and professors at our school are continually developing their research in Industrial Engineering. These research projects are often conducted with industrialist partners through specific contracts or thesis projects (CIFRE - ConventionsIndustrielles de Formation par la REcherche). The CIFRE is an agreement where companies are given grants if they supervise a doctoral student during his/her thesis. The following companies actively participate in this collaboration: EADS, ST Microelectronics, ESSILOR, PSA and Air France.
Evaluation or consulting assignments: from time to time researchers at Génie industriel can play a part in companies via specific evaluation or consulting assignments in their research domain.
Two main areas of evaluation include:
optimising development and innovation processes
optimising flows in a global supply chain
Carrying out projects: Companies can have access to our school's GI-Nova Platform, a new platform for innovation, design & prototyping. Some of the physical prototyping tools include Rapid Prototyping and Machining. Companies can use these facilities to make their prototypes.
Life long learning and project development: businesses can also use the school's GI-Nova Platform for 'Life Long Learning' and 'Development Projects' within the company.
