We’ve all heard the infamous “Engineers don’t have life, all they do is study!”. And yes, while engineering education requires a significant time commitment, students should anticipate the schoolwork while relatively maintaining a healthy balance and know what they’re getting into to be able to fully enjoy their experience.
When the team at Vinci Eco Drive set out to design and build their formula-type car and Efficiency Prototype, they knew they needed a powerful tool to bring their ideas to life. That’s where Dassault Systems’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform came in. In a recent video, Dassault Systems highlighted the ways in which the student club used […]
Passions and potential professional paths may not always be directly related. Many students have fairly clear ideas of what engineers perform in their heads. The mind might picture large machinery, perhaps a bridge or two, but the term probably has a much wider scope than one could realize.
There’s a big difference between being seen as a highly qualified engineering graduate vs skilled professional. The job search can seem particularly difficult and engineering grads might find the market competition to be very overwhelming despite successful internships and projects they’ve completed during their studies.
LeoFly is the first French team to launch a rocket in the European Rocketry Challenge, a competition for European engineering and science students promoted by the Portuguese Space Agency. For its first launch from Portugal, LeoFly’s Helios rocket lifted off as planned and experienced a nominal flight. This performance represents the third-best result in EuRoC’22’s […]
After the busy year of 2021-2022, LéoFly has reached its goal: Polaris and 2piR have been validated, launched, and have each made a nominal flight during the C’Space 2022 competition, a total success for the aeronautics student club of Devinci Higher Education. From July 16 to 23, 2022, nearly 200 students set out to conquer […]
On Thursday, April 14, the graduation ceremonies for undergraduate and graduate students from ESILV engineering school were held at Paris La Defense Arena and gathered over 1600 students, parents, friends, staff, and faculty. To walk the stage fully dressed in the grad gown and cap is the ultimate reward for many years of hard work […]
There are things that people around engineers do that irritate them to no end, from stereotyping to being inquisitive. Here’s a list of things that no engineer enjoys hearing. Take note of this and refrain from saying similar things in the future.
DaVinciCode, the cybersecurity student club of the De Vinci Higher Education, organized a weekend-long CTF competition, which was open to all hacking enthusiasts, students or not. This year, the competition gathered almost 2,000 participants and 1,200 teams from all over the world around thirty security challenges conceived during engineering projects at ESILV. The digital security […]
So, you’ve spotted a very difficult-to-pronounce, massive word, and you’re automatically tempted to start looking for additional words you’ll potentially start dreading and add it to your list if you haven’t already. Phobias, no matter how prevalent, might make it difficult to choose a career. A career as a surgeon would be unlikely if you […]
An engineer’s work tends to revolve around many elements like creativity and design, numbers, coding, and project management, but the more studies evaluate what workplace conditions are demanding, the more a reframing of soft skills has become apparent, particularly power skills that are key to future-proofing your career.
From January 28 to 30, defense professionals and young talent wishing to work in the industry met at the Grande Halle de la Villette to attend the “Fabrique Defense” 2022 event. LeoFly, the aerospace student club of the Devinci Higher Education, was present for the occasion. Big names in the space industry such as Ariane […]
