Student engineering cycle - After a BAC+2 or +3 or +4 degree

After completing the preparatory cycle of Polytech engineering schools, a "Classe Préparatoire aux Grandes Écoles", a BUT, a licence other bac+2 +3 or a Master 1, you can enter the engineering cycle at Polytech.

PeiP students in the Polytech network have automatic access to the network's student-registered specialties, if their course is validated. To enter an apprenticeship specialization, PeiP students must apply directly to that specialization.

The Polytech competitive entrance exam recruits students on the preparatory track.

Polytech Annecy-Chambéry recruits CPGE students who have completed :

  • Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth Sciences - BCPST
  • Mathematics and Physics - MP
  • Mathematics Physics Informatics - MPI
  • Physics Chemistry - PC
  • Physics and Engineering Sciences - PSI
  • Physics and Technology - PT
  • Technology and Industrial Sciences - TSI

How to register

As the BUT diploma is a professional qualification, your specialization at BUT determines which of the school's specializations are open to you.
Recruitment will mainly take place at the end of BUT. Candidates with an excellent ranking in their graduating class may be recruited at the end of BUT2.

Registration for the Polytech network competition

Take a competitive entrance examination and enter the 1st year of the student engineering program in the Polytech network. To do this, you need to submit a single application.
