The electrical engineering specialization at INSA Strasbourg trains engineers capable of developing multidisciplinary projects involving computer science, automatic control engineering, electronics, electrotechnics and power electronics.


  • to provide versatile, multi-skilled engineers and to give them a solid scientific and technical grounding, both theoretical and practical.
  • to provide the students with all the indispensable elements to integrate the industrial world.


The skills acquired will cover technical areas such as computer science, automatic controls, electronics and electrotechnics. The issues of energy savings and the implementation of renewable energies will also be studied. In addition, the course also includes cross-disciplinary skills such as foreign languages, project management, human resources, etc.

In the final year, the student can study a special subject or for a master’s.

  • the energy track focuses on the production, distribution and transformation of electrical energy.
  • the systems track covers the modeling, design and implementation of real-time systems.
  • the objective of the master‘s course (run in partnership with the University of Strasbourg) is to train students in research in the fields of automatic controls and robotics.

Internships and final course project

  • in Year 1, a mandatory “discovery” placement in a company (4 weeks minimum)
  • in Year 3, a mandatory “application” placement in a company (4 weeks minimum)
  • in Year 4, a mandatory “technician” placement in a company (8 weeks minimum)
  • a technological research project (PRT) in semester 9
  • a final course project at the end of Year 5

Apprenticeship scheme

This specialization can be taken as a sandwich course.


During the final year of the engineering course, students can gain an insight into the research world by preparing a simultaneous research master’s.

The electrical engineering research team works on two main strands on the themes of control and the modeling of converter-machine systems.

double degree

Double degrees exist with institutions in Brazil, Germany and USA and there is the possibility of a master’s in Switzerland.


On completion of the course, the electrical engineer will be capable of adapting easily to the different aspects of the electrical industry and holding different types of posts: design or research and development engineer, production and maintenance engineer, project engineer, engineer specializing in control and methodology.

Graduates of the course practice in a variety of sectors: manufacturing and installation of electrical equipment, electricity production, the environment, transport equipment, industrial machinery, engineering services and technical studies, IT services (companies in the digital sector).

The school’s proximity with Germany, Benelux and Switzerland offers natural openings in those countries.
