Five-year courses

The Centre-Val de Loire INSA stays true to the INSA training model, which means that the courses are taught over five years, with gradual specialisation. The outline is as follows:

  • A first year following the core syllabus: the objective is to give students a grounding for being able to continue their studies, whatever their pre-specialisation.
  • A second year of gradual specialisation: pre-specialisation in a major subject area, this gradually prepares students for going into one of four specialities.

These first two years form the Engineering Science and Technology (STPI) department.

  • Three years of specialisation: these years define the degree being taken by giving students the chance to customise their course through the options they choose.
