Industrial systems engineering (GSI)
Industrial Systems Engineering Department - course taught on the Blois campus

The Industrial Systems Engineering speciality trains multiskilled general engineers who are able to take responsibility of industrial production.


Industrial Systems Engineers undertake general cross-training that enables them to take responsibility of industrial production in:

  • Design (mechanics, electronics and information technology)
  • Industrial production operation and management

End-of-course options:

  • Industrial purchases engineering / Industrial Purchases Engineering (IAI)
  • Ingénierie Mécanique et Conception / Mechanical Engineering and Design (IMC)
  • Acquisition Analyse et Décision / Acquisition Analysis Decision (ACAD)
  • Performance Maintenance Fiabilité des Systèmes Industriels / Performance Maintenance and Reliability of Industrial Systems (PMFSI)

Programme domains:

  • Industrial systems management
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Human, economic, legal and social sciences

Test benches operated to illustrate the theoretical concepts studied during Lectures and Tutorials:

  • mechanical systems and continuum mechanics
  • analogue electronics
  • automatic control, servo-systems and signal processing
  • data transmission
  • powder transport
  • electrical machinery and power electronics
  • microcontrollers and digital electronics
