This course is divided into two parts, each serving distinct yet complementary purposes:

Part 1: "Master Thesis Tutorial"
In Part 1, students will receive comprehensive guidance on various aspects of their master's thesis journey. This includes:

- Strategies for contacting industrial partners through platforms like Jobteaser, crafting effective CVs, utilizing social networks, and preparing for interviews.
- Techniques for researching and selecting an industrial master thesis project that aligns with personal interests and career goals.
- Skills for collecting relevant scientific references to inform the master thesis.
- Training in the design and delivery of the master thesis report and presentation, ensuring clarity, coherence, and professionalism.

Part 2: "Communication"
This part focuses on enhancing students' cross-cultural understanding and communication skills while also promoting engineering education:

- learning about the specificities of the students' different cultures, and also the French culture
- developing educational devices and events for high school students around the themes of engineering and the female engineer.


Part 1: Master Thesis Tutorial

1. Searching and Choosing an Industrial Master Thesis Project:

- Define a master project proposal outlining objectives and scope.
- Identify companies that align with project goals and criteria.
- Utilize various platforms such as LinkedIn, Viadeo, and the Grenoble INP website for job searches.
- Develop effective CVs and cover letters tailored to specific positions.
- Learn interview techniques and strategies for successful engagement.

2. Business Forum with Companies:

- Navigate the searching process including sending proposals, scheduling meetings, and conducting face-to-face interactions with potential industrial partners.

3. Collecting Scientific References for the Master Thesis:

- Utilize resources such as the Industrial Engineering department library, online databases like Google Scholar.

4. Designing and Delivering the Master Thesis Report and Presentation:

- Structure and write school deliverables in accordance with academic standards.
- Develop the thesis report with appropriate content and organization.
- Prepare for and deliver effective presentations of the master thesis research findings.

Part 2: Communication

The intercultural project at GI is led by international students, who are required to develop educational devices and events for high school students in the Grenoble area around the themes of engineering and the female engineer. It is work that will help high school students recognize and understand the reality of the engineering profession. It is also designed to fight against the mental representations associating this trade with masculine values.

In practice, international students develop didactic modules in French for high school classes. Europole High School was chosen for its proximity and international openness. The project involves all the science teachers of second and first, and unfolds in two phases. For the preparatory phase, which took place last semester, international students took part in the TP Classes for a presentation of the engineering profession, through playful simulation activities and exchanges.
This project will continue next semester with the organization of a conference in collaboration with the students of Europole who will be in grade 11.

For our international students, the "EngineerE" project is a particularly enriching experience: they set up the project by contacting engineers as well as the educational teams of the school. They develop their written as well as oral communication skills through interviews and résumé writing. Project monitoring develops their sense of collective work. They learn to express themselves in French in front of an audience but also within the framework of personal interaction.

Moreover, this project is made visible by developing communication strategies and culminating in a conference.

On a cultural level they must adapt to the specificities of French culture, its educational system, and develop their command of the French language: the activities are indeed in French however the Europole students are capable of switiching to English when necessary. By working with students from other cultures, they are immediately confronted with intercultural problems that they will encounter later in their career.



Contrôle des connaissances

Part 1 (A: 50%): Presentations, reports (CV, letter of motivation, etc.), interviews simulation

Part 2 (B: 50%): Presentations, Writing roleplaying games, setting up a budget, organising a live event for Real-time interaction, an immersive experience that goes beyond the classroom and opportunities for in-person networking.

Evaluation of session 1 (N1) = 0.5 A + 0.5 B

Evaluation of session 2 (N2) = interviews with teachers and deliverables
