What You Will Learn

The CEP introduces all the options for careers in engineering, allowing you to make an informed decision based on which field best suits your interests. 

Conducted in the first semester of your first year of study, the programme provides you with a clearer overview of the different programmes offered by SEG and enables you to build a solid foundation of engineering skills and knowledge. It is the ideal way to broaden your engineering experience while opening the door to new possibilities.

Towards the end of the first semester of your first year, you will be invited to apply for one of the following related diplomas:

In the first semester, you will take the following modules:

   

From the second semester onwards, students will study the modules that are allocated to a specific diploma.
