visual: Initial training

Developed in partnership with companies from mines, building and civil engineering works sectors to meet a need in labor force in a sector in strong growth, the Bachelor of Technology in Maintenance and Management of building and civil engineering equipment aims at training skilled professionals able to advise, train machines users, diagnose breakdowns and fix them. It is targeted at students, willing to:

  • Acquire the necessary knowledge for the running of engines from the mines and civil engineering works sector: hydraulic shovel, loader, grader, etc… or maintenance: crane, fork-lift truck, pallet truck…
  • Grasp the management of a material depot.

It provides important assets for a quick employability and good career prospects. In Africa, the mining sector for instance, can alone represent up to 25% of the GDP of a State. The sector of building and civil engineering equipment, boosted by the demographic boom and urbanization, experiences an average growth between 12 and 15% per year. During this training, a particular attention is given to professional qualification aspects. 85% of speakers come from partner companies. These interventions also allow students to strengthen their bonds with companies, hence increasing their chance to find a work placement or a job.

Workshops and work placements, awarded by certificates are also organized in partnership with the leading constructors in the area: Caterpillar, Liebherr, and Komatsu. With a one to two weeks length, they are also open to executive in activity, who wishes to increase their skills on a specific area.
