PresentationEngineers trained at ESB are able to use wood and other bio-based materials in an innovative way.
They master scientific and technical knowledge, lead teams and manage projects. They use new technologies and place their approach in a logic of circular economy.
The realization of projects, collaborative and interdisciplinary work associated with experimentation on scale 1, constitute a strong singularity of the engineering program of the ESB.objectivesESB engineers are trained to value wood and bio-based materials .
Aware that these materials are the answer to environmental and societal challenges , they are committed to designing and building a sustainable future.
Leaders of the teams they supervise, the engineers of the ESB rely on their scientific and technical knowledge and on their managerial skills to carry out the projects they manage.
Specialists in bio-based materials, they use new technologies and proven methods to make choices with optimized impacts.
They are able to put innovation into the processes for which they are responsible, in a broad spectrum of activity sectors (construction, transport, capital goods).
Sensitive to market expectations, they are able to imagine uses and services to make life easier for users.
The sense of the concrete and the collective is developed on the basis of scale 1 projects and experiments ... so many singularities that characterize the engineering program of the ESBTargeted skillsAt the end of the course, the graduate ESB engineer is able to:Integrate into a professional environment / network and understand its complexity.

Sizing a complex technological system.State recognitionThe ESB is accredited by the Commission of the titles of the engineer (CTI) to deliver the diploma of engineer.
The diploma benefits from the EUR-ACE label which validates the conformity of the training with European standards.
Obtaining the ESB engineering diploma confers the master's degree (bac + 5).Organization Lessons and scenariosThe training is organized around the succession of teaching periods devoted to a subject then periods of implementation.The teaching periods (ENS) correspond to the contribution of knowledge provided in Teaching Units (EU). The lessons can take different forms: courses, practical work, tutorials ... face to face or distance (e-learning).
Scenario periods (MES) allow the application of lessons through case studies, projects or workshops. In the case of apprenticeship, the scenarios are carried out in the host companies (ENT). Individualization of trainingAllowing students to individualize their path is a strong axis of the training program.
During schooling, students choose:elective lessons,
a second living language,
the subjects of certain projects which are left to the initiative of the students,
a minor and a major (specialized UE sets) to affirm the professional project,
a 2nd minor which will enrich the training profile.
the possibility of doing a gap year or a semester with a BSE partner.The internationalEach student-engineer must carry out an international mobility of at least 8 weeks during their schooling.
For students, it is carried out in different ways: internship, semester of study in one of the 38 partner establishments or even a double diploma (Russia, Chile, Switzerland or Brazil).
For apprentices, international mobility takes the form of a company mission at the end of semester 6.Teaching program1st year engineer - 60 ECTSThe first semester provides students with the knowledge and skills essential to the whole course: project management, problem-solving methods, knowledge of wood and bio-based materials, basis of the circular economy, basic sciences, communication .
The second semester prepares for the first choices of orientation. During this semester, students discover specialties and digital tools.

AMO HQE Engineer
High environmental quality (HQE) project management assistance engineer
Its job is to support building professionals in an environmental approach, most often associated with obtaining certification.
The AMO HQE intervenes from the programming phase to define the environmental objectives associated with the construction or renovation project.
In the design phase, he assists the team to guarantee the achievement of the targeted performance levels and carries out various studies helping in decision-making.
Site monitoring consists of verifying the environmental impact of the site itself and the achievement of the objectives initially set.
The research and development engineer ensures technological monitoring, research and development of new materials or processes including wood or derived products in order to promote innovation and the competitiveness of companies in the sector.
Based on the analysis of consumers' expectations, he manages research projects from studying the product to its industrial implementation.
Logging is the first step in transforming and enhancing forest production.
The engineer in charge of forest management manages all technical and commercial operations allowing the harvesting of timber while respecting the safety and regeneration of the resource.
It guarantees the routing and traceability of the material to primary processing companies (sawmills, panel manufacturing plants, stationery and biomass boilers).
