SIGMA Clermont Graduate School of Engineering becomes the first higher education institution in Clermont-Ferrand to obtain the new Campus France seal of approval, recognising its commitment to the attractiveness of the region to international students.
An internationally-oriented school, driven by research and strongly connected to the world of enterprise
After a first year spent consolidating and enhancing their core knowledge in mechanics or chemistry, our student engineers become more specialized towards a professional orientation, choosing one of several scientific departments.
... capable of adaptation
The Management, International, Culture, Society & Enterprise department is very representative of SIGMA Clermont's values, and covers 30% of our teaching. The program is international: all our students take an internship, academic semester or dual degree in a foreign country.
A customized program
As well as the choice of scientific department, several optional tracks are available starting from the second year, depending on the student's personal and professional ambitions: aeronautics, enterprise, international, innovation and creativity, industry of the future.
Enterprise in the school
Throughout their study program, our student engineers are in contact with people from the world of industry and research, and gain concrete experience working on projects proposed by our enterprise partners.
What will you do at SIGMA Clermont?
Engineering Master's degree in French (Diplôme d’Ingénieur)
You have several options if you wish to join us for degree-awarded courses: you can apply via programs such as n+i or Campus France, or through specific collaboration agreements (dual degree, etc.).
Full degree students on program mobility start with the 1st year of Master’s level (S7).
All classes are given in French.
Courses also include social studies, economics and languages.
In order to obtain the SIGMA master's degree, students are required to perform two different internships in companies.
Students wanting to study full-time must register and pay a full tuition fee, although tuition fees do not apply for students coming from partner universities.
We also offer dual degree programs for students from selected partner universities worldwide.
Engineering Master's degree in English (INNOMECH)
INNOMECH (Innovative Mechanisms: Materials, Design and Control) is an English-language engineering master’s program in the heart of France. It focuses on advanced materials and mechanism design & control in order to manage complex systems.
The master proposes a high-quality educational offer in the areas of advanced materials and the design and control of complex systems (with a particular focus on industrial machines and robots).
After completion the students will have mastered the different aspects of complex mechanisms (such as mathematical modelling, mechanical design, material modelling, control engineering and sensor integration).
The course covers all the main themes necessary to be able to deal with complex mechanisms as a whole, rather than just concentrating on one particular area.
Exchange studies and projects
Within the framework of our agreements with over 90 universities around the world, you can join us for between one and four semesters for exchange studies and credit-awarded work. European students can integrate SIGMA via the Erasmus+ program, too. All classes are given in French.
It is possible to carry out a university project or research internship lasting from 3 months to a whole semester.
We offer a wide range of topics in different areas in Chemistry and Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
Students will have a hands-on learning experience through interactions with teachers, researchers and students.
This project work / internship can be performed entirely in English. We do, however, recommend that you have a basic knowledge of French.
The program is also open to certain undergraduate students.
