Well-targeted public


  • UPMC students having completed the 2nd year (vocational stream) of the bachelor of electronics or mechanics
  • Students with a DUT (mechanical engineering, physical measurement, electrical engineering and industrial computing, industrial engineering and maintenance, mechanics industry, etc.) or a BTS (electronics systems, industrial product design, industrial maintenance, mechanics and industrial automatisms, industrialization of mechanical products, etc.)
  • Students from CPGE (PSI, PT, PTSI, …)

Selection is made on the basis of a written application and an interview. Admission to the CFA UPMC is definitive only after an apprenticeship contract has been signed. The CFA helps students find a company for the internship as soon as they have been deemed admissible.

Access to the apprenticeship is subject to two conditions: students must be under 26 years of age when the contract is signed and authorized to work in France if they are from outside the EEC.

The application file can be downloaded on the CFA UPMCNouvelle fenêtre website. It must be sent in by Thursday, May 14, 2009. Interviews will take place from Monday, May 25, 2009.
