ENSAIT’s Engineering Diploma


Professions within industry

ENSAIT’s job prospects are recognised by many sectors and associated professions. ENSAIT’s Observatory for Engineering Professions has enabled the five main lines of business and many jobs to be brought to the fore.


30% of our engineers become Research and Development Engineers and 35% take up positions as Quality Engineers.
However, the last few years have seen growth in commerce/marketing sectors. Indeed, many companies seek both scientific and technical expertise from our textile engineers for these positions: quality assignments for sourcer or purchaser positions are therefore paramount.


Salaries for recent graduates vary between 32 and 34K (annual gross salary). They vary depending on role, business type and geographical location.


15% of our engineers choose to work abroad.

35% work in the Ile-de-France region, 26% work elsewhere in France.

Over half of them work in large organisations (more than 2,000 employees), a quarter work in small organisations (less than 50 employees).
