  Diploma in civil mining engineering

The diploma "Ingénieur Civil des Mines" (ICM) is a trademark: the three "Écoles des Mines" (Paris, Nancy and Saint-Étienne) are the only schools authorised to award this diploma. Also called a diploma in civil mining engineering, today's qualification is far removed from that awarded in the early years of the century.

In France, an engineer's training is founded, after secondary school, on two academic periods:

  • A three-year undergraduate study period, generally in the preparatory classes for the Grandes Écoles and then in the Grandes Écoles themselves.
  • A graduate study period made up of the last two years in the Grande École. The graduate school combines the coursework of these two graduate years as a whole.

The Saint-Étienne Diplôme d'Ingénieur Civil des Mines is a Joint Master in engineering and management which rewards a double major course:

  • An in-depth technological training in a given field (the student's future professional field), comparable to the syllabus of a traditional Master's program;
  • A general methods course for engineers, common to all programs in all fields. This includes acquisition of essential mathematical tools (design, decision-making), foundations of management, notions of law, economics, international perspectives, new human and social challenges, requirements and challenges of sustainable development as well as humanities...

The "ingénieur civil des mines", trained by the École nationale supérieure des mines de Saint-Étienne, is a high level generalist engineer, capable of operating in a global environment.
A key player in today's economy, his/her role is to conceive, set up, manage and direct large-scale industrial systems. His/her profile not only enables him/her to rapidly become established in a variety of different sectors but also to adapt to an ever changing world.
