Student projects are at the heart of ESILV’s pedagogy. Each year of their curriculum, engineering students carry out a major project in teams (from 4 to 6 students depending on the year).
During their studies, they develop technical skills, but also learn to work as a team over the long term, to manage difficulties and conflicts, and to manage a project over its entire duration. The topics proposed for each year of course target this rise in competence.
In year 4 and 5, the projects are proposed by a «partner» (company, association, research laboratory). Students also have the opportunity to carry out a major project about which they are passionate , by forming a team on it. The teams are also tasked with valuing their work towards the outside world through one or more actions: partnership with a company; participation in a competition; contribution to the world of open source; contribution to the world of knowledge; contribution to the world of research; creation of start-ups…
Here are some examples of the 68 projects that teams from year 5 will present at their booth: Asset Management Platform; Impacts of climate change on the financial system; Autonomous mini-car; Management of a collocation via blockchain; Sensitive robotic arm; Real estate tinder; Whale watching on the Ethereum Blockchain; Machine learning techniques for credit risk; Controlled and connected factory; Capturing CO2 in the air - A solution for carbon neutrality? ; Health insurance fraud; AI at the service of Enhanced Alternative Communication. The Vinci Eco Drive (car) and LeoFly (space) associations will also present their ambitious projects.
