Polytech Marseille, a university engineering school specializing in a wide range of trades and specialties, organizes events with its engineering students to accelerate their professionalization by bringing them closer to the realities of companies and facilitating their search for internships, work-study programs and jobs.
Annual meetings are organized for companies looking for engineers in Polytech's 9 high-tech specialties : Biological Engineering - Biomedical Engineering - Civil Engineering - Industrial Engineering - Computer Science - Materials - Mechanics and Energy - Microelectronics and Telecommunications - Digital Systems. Conferences organized by the school or its students (Proving Forum / Pôle Avenir) provide an opportunity for companies to present their businesses and innovation.
These are opportunities for partner companies to make themselves known, to communicate about their internship and recruitment needs, and to forge special links with our school.
Polytech Marseille is a key contact for companies recruiting specialized engineers: its student-engineer workforce is the largest in the PACA region, and its courses cover a wide range of engineering fields. Some specialties have proven their worth for over thirty years. More than 8,000 engineers have been trained in Marseille's university engineering programs, now grouped under Polytech Marseille.

Polytech Marseille organized its 2nd entrepreneurial challenge at the beginning of 2023: the aim was to foster the entrepreneurial spirit of student engineers and stimulate their creativity around innovative business projects with a theme: this year, students had to think about the theme of water.
Accompanied by professionals, coaches and alumni entrepreneurs, the 400 1st-year student-engineers imagined technological solutions in 80 inter-specialty teams set up in advance by the school. They then had to prepare pitches and defend their projects before juries of experts.
