The third year of the general engineering curriculum offers a wide range of career options. Whether it's a more in-depth study of a particular sector, an academic exchange or a double degree in France or abroad, each student can build his or her own career path.
In the third year, students can pursue the elective pathway and customise their courses from among all the UE offered at École Centrale de Lyon.

The end-of-study project is the culmination of training for student engineers at École Centrale de Lyon. The work carried out during the internship must lead to convincing results from the point of view of the company or laboratory hosting the intern. These results are judged by the quality of the work carried out during the internship, the written report and the oral presentation.
FOCUS ON WORK-STUDY: engineering students also have the option of completing their 3rd year under a 12- or 13-month professionalisation contract. More information >
Students who have opted for the elective pathway (excluding work-study option) have the opportunity to follow and validate a Master 2 in parallel with their general engineering degree. École Centrale de Lyon offers up to 18 Master's degrees in science, technology, health or human sciences.
Through its various partnerships with the Groupe des Écoles Centrale, CHEL'S and the Collège d'Ingénierie Lyon Saint-Étienne, Centrale Lyon offers its students the opportunity to broaden their areas of expertise and take their third year at another institution.
